Jaylon Smith will make his debut vs Giants....

sxdxca : 9/10/2017 1:03 am
I'm a bit concerned , this guy was supposed to be a top 5 pick , but because of his injury dropped to the 2nd rd for the cowboys.

Well now he's healed and will be the starting mlb for the cowboys , he could make a significant difference to there d. Which I hope our team is prepared for.

So now Ezekiel Elliot and Jaylon Smith will be playing , and we may not have our Odell Beckham Jr.

Curious what do you think?
He's in there because their starter is injured

He was a solid guy and you have to hope for his sake he experiences a full recovery, but what are the chances with such a nasty injury the guy ever comes close to what he was in college?

Then add the transition to the NFL from college, and you basically end up with a Mark Herzlich - great story, not so much production on the field.
He's in there out of necessity

There is no way they wanted to rush him like this after that horrendous injury. He's a good story if he pans out but my first point of attack would be him

we just forfeit?

Or at least ask the NFL for an injunction because of Hurricane Irma?

That way at least maybe we'll play them when Zeke is suspended and Beckham's amputated ankle is sewn back on.
He looked slow in preseason

and seemed to struggle with any lateral movement. He made one big play which caught the headlines, but wasn't much of a factor beyond that. Until he proves otherwise he's just a name.

I don't expect him to be anywhere near his previous level because his injury wasn't garden variety. He had nerve damage. I was surprised he went that early. The Cowboys were only a handful of teams will invest to take the risk.
Is he starting in place of Sean Lee?

If so, I'll take that 100/100 times.
He was a sideline to sideline lber

I suspect he has lost that ability....so now he is an undersized, slower MLB.....ok.

Will he be covering Engram?

Enemy. It's football baby.
Off of what I've learned about his performance in college,

he will never be the same. At best average, considering the nerve involvement. Imo

but he is a cowboy so I guess he takea over as starter, is named all pro declared a steal resigns a huge contract then blows his knee out again
I didn't get this scared

watching "It" at the theater. I'm really a nervous wreck.
He looked very average during the preseason  
PatersonPlank : 9/10/2017 8:28 am : link
More like a FA type. He doesn't move anywhere near like he did.

He is still rehabbing a nasty injury and is really a rookie.

The perspective is that I believe JT Thomas played more snaps in the preseason than Smith. He is expected to share time with Justin Durant who is a journeyman who has averaged 6 starts per the last 4 seasons.

Dallas has a lot of good players to 'worry' about. At this time, Smith is not one of them.
Smith didn't get the memo  
RetroJint : 9/10/2017 9:17 am : link
that he's now a UDFA-type player. When asked what he expected of himself tonight , he responded, "Excellence." The Cowboys aren't shielding him by dividing the time "run-pass," either. It looks like he gets the game, tonight. Oh, and he says he is completely healed. So we will see tonight.
Even completely healthy top

draft picks don't become impact players in the NFL. Smith hasn't played one real snap in the NFL and is coming off of a major injury. He's just a JAG until he proves otherwise.
No one gives.

A shit. Notre Damn sucks. Boo hoo we didn't pick the player that went to Notre Damn and blew out his knee.
