2011 NFL Mock Draft: ESPN's Todd McShay Has Tyron Smith To Cowboys

In yet another 2011 NFL Mock Draft, the Dallas Cowboys are selecting somebody other than Prince Amukamara. 

ESPN's Todd McShay, draft expert No. 2 over at the Worldwide Leader, has the Dallas Cowboys selecting USC offensive tackle Tyron Smith with the ninth overall pick in the upcoming draft. This, of course, is contrary to what SB Nation has been projecting, which had for awhile Amukamara being selected by Dallas before this week's latest having Robert Quinn of North Carolina being taken by Dallas.

Smith is listed at 6-5, 304 lbs. and is regarded as the best draft prospect at his position this year. Smith is projected by McShay - and SB Nation - to be the first offensive lineman taken on April 28. The knock on Smith is that he's a bit raw and a project, but that there is tremendous upside to be had.

You can watch McShay mock the top 10 selections of the NFL Draft at ESPN's NFL page, or you can read his latest mock draft, which is an insider piece here.
