Taco Charlton Embraces Challenge of Competition with Tyron Smith

    NFL Rookie Minicamps are a strange time in the process. Yes, our new toys from football Christmas get broken in, but their work – in this case from – hardly resembles the football action that we'll still be starved for after the weekend.

    On top of this, it seems that there is still not much buzz in about the 28th overall pick , despite his ability to fill an immediate need as a prototypical, big-school pass rushing prospect the Cowboys have targeted in recent successful drafts.

    Charlton is embracing his opportunity to be the right Dallas needs him to be if the play from their will improve, along with the challenge that comes on the other line of scrimmage with this.

    “I'm going against the best in the NFL every day,” is what Taco Charlton had to say about his match up with that is sure to be heated throughout the summer. Smith, a pick in his own right, is just one of Dallas' offensive linemen with a lot invested in him – performing above expectations even as a top selection.

    Draft picks on the defensive line – often more “shots in the dark” by the Cowboys in later rounds – have not worked nearly as well in recent , but Charlton hopes to quickly change this.

    Possessing all of the traits, along with the patented RKG attitude that aided in the pounding the war room table for Taco's services, to be a solid base LDE with the versatility to kick inside.

    The only way the Cowboys know how to mold their 2017 first round pick into the player they need is through competition, and it doesn't get much better than letting Taco Charlton work against Tyron Smith to #EarnTheStar.
