Overview:

Tyron Smith is this years best offensive tackle prospect. He’s very young and inexperienced but he has all the tools to be a franchise LT. He’s extremely athletic and has a great kick-slide. His technique needs some work and he won’t ever be an outstanding run blocker, but for a team looking for LT to protect the blind side, he may be worth a Top 10 pick.
