The Dallas Cowboys had a remarkable regular season in 2016 going 13-3 before doing their usual fold up in the playoffs. They were led by two rookies on offense- Ezekiel Elliott’s big season was not a surprise but when Tony Romo went down in the pre-season few saw Dak Prescott a 4th rounder stepping in and playing as well as he did.
The Cowboys going into the draft this week need help on the offensive line-replacing Doug Free who retired at right tackle. Jason Witten is going into his 15th season, he won’t play forever-so a tight end will soon be needed. On defense they need help at defensive end and in the backfield at both cornerback and safety.
With the 28th overall pick in the 2017 NFL the Dallas Cowboys select- DE Taco Charlton Michigan 6’6″ 277 4.93 40 time. Charlton lasting this late into the first round- the Cowboys will jump at the chance to get him at this spot. Tall and quick. He had 19 sacks last year at Michigan.
