I’m not sure what's more frightening right now: that Dallas Cowboys right tackle Tyron Smith is only 21 years old or that the accolades continue to roll in for him.

The Dallas Morning News is reporting that superstar linebacker DeMarcus Ware is the latest to heap huge praise on the stud tackle.

Ware stated that the “aggressive” right tackle is the first guy to ever lock him up.  He made that statement and a few others while on the Coop and Nate show.

“The crazy thing about Tyron is he’s the first guy that when you lock up with him, you can’t get off of him.”

“He’s the first guy to ever do that to me. That shows the strength he has and how quick he is on the inside. He’s a very good, young aggressive tackle. When you try to beat him inside, you can’t. He’s just that athletic. Cowboys fans don’t have anything to worry about. He’s getting the job done and working hard.”

“When you think about a tackle that’s coming from the right side to the left side, it’s a different speed change, but the athleticism of Tyron and how he can latch on to you if you try to overpower him or when you go around the corner, he uses his hands really well,” Ware explained. “Him being that left young tackle is what we need. We need him over there being aggressive. I beat him every once in a while, but he’s been doing his job.”

That is huge praise coming from arguably the best pass rusher in the game right now. Regardless of the two being teammates, Ware did not have to say it.

Smith will now make the move over to left tackle and should do an incredible job guarding Tony Romo’s blind side.
