As many expected, the Cowboys have added a defensive end in the first round. Taco Charlton out of Michigan has been drafted with the 28th overall pick.
With other pass rushers like Charles Harris and Takkarist McKinley going in the picks just ahead of Dallas, the Cowboys still came away with one of the higher-rated defensive ends in the draft class.
T.J. Watt, another prospect that many Cowboys fans wanted, was still available when Charlton was selected. Several cornerback prospects were also still on the board.
The Cowboys’ next pick is 60th overall, which will occur tomorrow evening.
