Former Notre Dame standout linebacker and Dallas Cowboys’ 34th overall pick Jaylon Smith continues the healing and recovery process from a devastating knee injury suffered in 2015. But there’s no question that the 20-year old is ecstatic about being a Dallas Cowboy, and is happy about getting to work under Pro Bowl linebacker Sean Lee.
Lee, also a second round pick (in 2010, out of Penn State), has gone through a number of knee injuries himself, so Smith is in good hands.
Smith (6’2″/245) recently joined ESPN’s Mike & Mike to discuss a number of topics, including what it’s like being a Cowboy and working with Lee:
“The perfect place for me to end up. My brother played for the Cowboys and it’s always been a dream for us not only to play in the NFL, but to play on the same team. So all of those emotions were going through, being at home with my family. Just a great opportunity.
. . . . .
Sean’s a great guy. And for me, it’s just watching him, he’s so disciplined. He loves the game of football. So I’m definitely happy to be here.”
