Redskins to Visit with USC Offensive Tackle Tyron Smith

Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports USC blue-chip offensive tackle Tyron Smith is scheduled to visit the Redskins, Cowboys, Vikings, Chiefs, Browns and the Buccaneers according to league sources with knowledge of the situation.

That’s six of his 10 visits over the next few weeks. Smith is ready to conduct his Pro Day workout Wednesday on the USC campus.

The 20-year-old didn’t work out at the NFL scouting combine other than bench pressing 225 pounds 29 times as he was still recovering from lateral meniscus surgery.

The All-Pac 10 Conference selection won the Morris Trophy as the top blocker in the league last season. The 6-foot-5, 315-pounder is projected to go as high as the top 10 selections.

Smith is expected to run anywhere from the 4.8 range to a high 4.9 at his workout.
