NFL Top 100 Players of 2015: #36 Tyron Smith

Coming in at number 36 on the NFL Top 100 players list is Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith.



Draft Flashback: Tyron Smith

The Dallas Cowboys select USC offensive tackle Tyron Smith with the ninth overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.  Another piece of smart drafting by the Dallas Cowboys to draft the young beast of an offensive lineman!

Tyron is an important piece of the Dallas Cowboys effort in rebuilding the “Great Wall” offensive line.


Draft Profile

Smith is one of the best prospects on the hoof in this class. Blessed with an ideal NFL frame and has the outstanding feet and athleticism necessary to be a starting left tackle. Does a great job staying in front of speed rushers, locks on and sustains, and can anchor against the bull rush. Shows solid power in the running game and is really productive out in space. Football IQ is lacking. Fails to find his target at times in the running games and is a tick slow recognizing blitzes. Smith could come off the board early in the first round due to his rare physical gifts.—

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith dealing with family issues.



Dallas Cowboys starting star left tackle Tyron Smith is currently going thru family issues which could explain his play on the football field.

Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports that on Tuesday afternoon, Dallas police responded to a 911 call to Smith’s North Dallas home, where his siblings showed up to “harass and torment” him “in the pursuit of collecting financial gain,” according to the police report.

Smith, 21, has three sisters and two brothers. Two of the sisters were among at least three people who showed up at Smith’s home Saturday and Tuesday, sources said. The police report did not name the individuals.

It is the latest in a string of events over several months in which family members have tried to harass Smith for their financial benefit, according to sources.

OTA Report


Todd Archer of OTA report from Valley Ranch…

*WR Dwayne Harris has a good feel for the slot position. He’s not the fastest player but he can find holes and he did some nice work underneath catching a pass from QB Kyle Orton in team drills. But if Harris wants to lock up a spot, he’ll have to show he can catch punts. He misjudged one punt and dropped another that Kevin Ogletree scooped up for a fumble recovery. 

Upset with what he felt was too much talking to the officials by both sides of the ball, Jason Garrett momentarily stopped the two-minute drill to tell the No. 1 offense and defense to stop complaining and play the game.

*LB Victor Butler got a lot of work in DeMarcus Ware‘s absence and he continues to put pressure on quarterbacks. I can see Rob Ryan putting together packages just to get Butler on the field more with Ware and Anthony Spencer. In one play, he lined up at nose tackle and brought pressure.

*DE Jason Hatcher was  active as well. He had a would-be sack of Tony Romo after slipping by LT Tyron Smith. He and Butler gave the offense real fits.

*Center Phil Costa rolled back a shotgun snap to Romo, which led to an Anthony Spencer sack and/or fumble recovery if it were a real game.
