FRISCO, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys took Tulsa tackle Tyler Smith with the 24th overall pick in the first round, targeting a once-dominant offensive line that is in a state of flux for the first time in years.
It’s a homecoming for Smith, who was born in Fort Worth and played his high school football career at North Crowley High School.
Smith was the choice, after two other targets were already off the board: Boston College’s Zion Johnson and Kenyon Green of Texas A&M. The Cowboys are the most unsettled they’ve been up front on offense since 2014.
Dallas has the 56th and 88th overall picks in Friday’s second and third rounds. Saturday should be busy, the Cowboys have a 4th round pick, four in the 5th round and a 6th rounder.
