TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa tackle Tyler Smith is headed to Dallas.

The Cowboys took Smith, one of the top prospects at his position, with the 24th overall pick in Thursday's first round of the NFL Draft.

Smith, a redshirt sophomore from Fort Worth, is also one of the youngest prospects in the draft after turning 21 years old in April.

Smith earned first-team All-American Athletic Conference honors in 2020, starting all nine games. He was suspended in the 2021 season opener for his role in the team's postseason brawl with Mississippi State, but started the remaining 12 games at left tackle, earning second-team All-AAC honors.
