Tyron Smith Celebrity LifeThe Pro Football Hall Of Fame has recently released the All-Decade Team for the 2010-2019 seasons. And it includes the Dallas Cowboys' rookie signing of 2009, Tyron Smith.
Nine years ago, Cowboys signed the first offensive linemen since 1981 in Round 1 of the NFL Draft 2011. This was the beginning of a trend for the Cowboys.
This earned him many regional honors and also All American Honors.
He was considered as a five-star recruit and numero uno prospect for an offensive tackle by Scout.com. He also was exceptional in the track and field and in shot-put.
Smith's work ethic was honed in the late nights working hours at his family's custodial service, where he cleaned office buildings in downtown Los Angeles.
Smith joined USC Trojans from 2008-2010. In his freshman year in college, he was listed as the backup left offensive tackle.
However, in the sophomore year, he played in the right as an offensive tackle for 12 games which earned him an All American honorable mention by CollegeFootballNews.com.
His professional career kicked off when he was signed by the Dallas Cowboys in the year of 2011 NFL Draft, where he was considered as one of the top offensive tackle prospects.
He was Cowboys' highest draft in the franchise history since 1966, where John Nilland went fifth in the overall draft.
Although he missed his first NFL game due to an ankle injury, Smith, then a 20-year rookie, started for Cowboys as a right tackle.
His excellent reading of the game earned him praises which enlisted him to the NFL All-Rookie Team of the year. By the end of 2013 season, Smith was a regular starter for Cowboys.
He was selected to Pro Bowl and ranked 78th by his fellow players in the 2014 NFL top 100 players.
Beginning of the 2014 season, Smith signed a $109 million contract extension for eight years with Cowboys, which made him the highest-paid offensive lineman in the league at that time.
Cowboys were right about the extension because it saw Smith as the top three offensive tackles in the league and also him earning his second Pro Bowl selection.
All these coupled with his selection to First-Team All-Pro for the first time and him ranking 36th in the NFL top 100 players that year.
At the end of the sixth season, Smith had earned his fourth consecutive Pro Bowl selection, his second First-Team All-Pro selection, and credited with the highest-ranked offensive lineman at 18th in the NFL top 100 players.
Although his seventh season with Cowboys was marred by multiple injuries, Smith still was named for his fifth consecutive Pro Bowl selection.
His impeccable work ethic has put him among the elite players at their positions. It is not really difficult to see why his name had to be on the wall of Hall Of Fame.
Nine seasons with Cowboys, he started in every one hundred and thirty-one games, along with being listed in the seven out of nine Pro Bowl selection.
This is verily substantiated by the remarks of former NFL lineman who turned analyst, Ross Tucker, that if one had to go to the computer lab and create a prototype of a perfect tackle, it would be Tyron Smith.
