Cowboys will likely draft OT Castonzo but they should take Smith


The Cowboys are all but certain to take an offensive tackle with their first pick. It appears they are up their old tricks of paralysis by analysis.

Tyron Smith is regarded as having the best long term potential in the draft among the tackles. He is rated by many as the best tackle in the draft period. He is certainly the most athletic. Yet the Cowboys are leaning toward taking Castonzo because he is considered more consistent and ready to play.

At age 20, Smith is far from a finished product. But he has the tools to be very, very special. He can play right tackle next year and move to left tackle in a year or two, while being a possible Pro Bowl caliber mainstay for years to come.
