"I just think his upside is tremendous," Jones recently said on the PFT PM Podcast of Tyler Smith. "He played at a smaller school there at Tulsa. He only played in 18 games at Tulsa. But we just feel like his skill set really lends to him having an opportunity to be a top, top left tackle at some point."

Smith will be expected to come in and contribute immediately, likely at the starting left guard formerly held by Connor Williams.

The Cowboys also signed deals with two of their other nine draft picks - fifth-round picks John Ridgeway, Matt Waletzko, DaRon Bland, Damone Clark, and sixth-round linebacker Devin Harper to deals as well.

According to ESPN's Todd Archer, Ridgeway signed a four-year deal worth $4.145 million, while Harper was signed to a four-year, $3.837 million deal, according to Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network.

Second-round pick Sam Williams, third-round pick Jalen Tolbert, and fourth-rounder Jake Ferguson all remain unsigned.
