High impact. Hungry. Proud to be a Cowboy. These words describe Jaylon Smith. Though Jaylon is not as visible of a player on the field as Vander Esch, he plays in a way that more frequently disrupts the game in favor of the Cowboys through his ability to rush the passer, and the physicality with which he plays.
Just as importantly, Smith loves being a cowboy. “I want to be a Cowboy. I want to be a Cowboy for the rest of my life,” Smith said Wednesday, via Jon Machota of TheAthletic.com. “Understanding what they’ve done for me, taking a chance, taking a risk. Now they’re getting the return on their investment. It’s a beautiful thing to be a Dallas Cowboy.”
