Cowboys could have help on the way in the form of Jaylon Smith
- News suggests Cowboys 2016 second-round pick (34th overall) Jaylon Smith’s nerves are regenerating, suggesting he may be closer to getting on the field and helping a defense that needs an injection of talent.
- Smith was a top prospect a season ago, ranking seventh in overall grade among linebackers.
- He excelled in coverage, a highly sought-after skill in the modern NFL, and possesses the traits to matchup with tight ends and backs in man-to-man coverage.
- A healthy Smith would project as an every-down LB, allowing a QB rating of only 74.6 in his final year in college (2016).
