Cowboys target D as expected with Michigan's Taco

Doyle BarkerApr 29, 2017

Charlton didn't play much in his first season for MI football.

Stephen Jones said the Cowboys had first-round grades on three defensive ends but that Charlton was not one of them. Last year, the Cowboys picked up a game-breaking running back in the first round (Ezekiel Elliott), a franchise quarterback (Dak Prescott) in the fourth round and a functional cornerback (Anthony Brown) in round six.

Malik McDowell, potential Cowboys first round pick. "He has the arm length that we're trying to get at the right defensive end". That placed a greater premium on what Charlton offers.

Head coach Jason Garrett says Charlton's experience in head coach Jim Harbaugh's program at MI will help in his transition to the pro ranks.

It was fitting that Awuzie and Witherspoon were the players to snap the drought, because they played such vital roles in the resurgence of the Buffs, helping them to a 10-4 record and Pac-12 South title last season. He graded Taco Charlton a bit lower, stating that he had seen flashes from the MI defensive end, but little else during his college career. Of course, the Cowboys haven't had a major pass rusher since they released Ware before the 2014 season. "We might not see one again for a while". According to ESPN Stats & Information, the Cowboys generated pressure on 23 percent of their opponents' dropbacks in 2016, which was third-worst in the NFL.

Jerry Jones has yearned for a war daddy since Ware left.

Cornerbacks accounted for just four interceptions previous year, and none of them had more than one. He then capped off his tenure in Boulder by being named co-recipient of Colorado's Zack Jordan Award, given to the Most Valuable Player. He broke out as a senior for 9.5 sacks, earning first-team All-Big Ten. No question, when you look at the SEC and those schools and how those players fare against their opponents and who they are going against every day in practice.

"I do have heartstrings to Dallas", MacIntyre said in a press release.

While there are concerns about his first step and speed off the edge, Charlton said his versatility will show up in the pros after playing four different positions in four years.
