Video: Roger Goodell Announcement Of Cowboys Tyron Smith Selection

See video of Roger Goodell announcing Tyron Smith (or was it Tyran?) as the Cowboy’s first round choice, No. 9 overall in the first round of the NFL draft, here.

Among the comments on the NFL Network during Smith’s selection:

Mike Mayock: “He has a wing span like a pterodactyl.”
Mayock: “His movement skills for a guy his size are elite. When I watched him I wondered, why is this guy not on the left side?”

Mayock and Marshall Faulk also discussed whether Smith should be moved immediately to left tackle or if Doug Free should stay at the spot for one more year before Smith slides over.
