On Thursday night the Dallas Cowboys traded back from No. 24 to No. 29 in the first round of the 2024 NFL draft and selected Oklahoma tackle Tyler Guyton. It was good maneuvering from the 'Boys, who picked up an extra third-round pick while still getting the reinforcements they need at tackle following the offseason departure of longtime blindside protector Tyron Smith.

For his part, Guyton was extremely happy to hear his name called, as evidenced by video of him and his family receiving the call from the organization. In fact, his family may have even been more psyched. You might want to turn down the volume for this one.

A longer, less high definition version for your viewing pleasure:

As Jake Peralta famously said: Chills. Literal chills. What a beautiful explosion of joy. This is seriously what draft night is all about. It is fun to dissect each and every pick but watching a group of young men realize their lifelong dreams is truly special. Everyone reacts differently and this sort is the best to watchβ€” one big family screaming incomprehensibly in celebration and happiness.

The green room is cool and everything but this is the good stuff. Nothing brings out true emotion like being in a comfortable environment surrounded by family and friends. The energy coursing through the room is palpable.

A wonderful couple of clips, and one that definitely hammers home how excited Guyton is to be a Cowboy.
