Kiper's Big Board: USC's Smith to Cowboys
The latest Big Board is up, and Mel Kiper Jr. has this to say about the Cowboys and the No. 9 pick:
If you're a team, like the Dallas Cowboys, that needs to address the offensive line but is among the first 10 picks, for the first time, you may have matching value for that spot.
That player? USC offensive tackle Tyron Smith.
The other player that has impressed Kiper -- and NFL scouts -- immensely is DeSoto High School product Von Miller, the linebacker who dazzled at Texas A&M. How much has Miller impressed? Kiper has him at No. 2, and possibly challenging LSU's Patrick Peterson as the best available talent in the NFL draft.
