Taco Charlton Goes No. 28 To The Cowboys

Taco Charlton Goes No. 28 To The Cowboys”

The 6-foot-3, 198-pound Witherspoon became one of the best cornerbacks in the Pac-12 a year ago.

Vidauntae "Taco" Charlton, a defensive end out of MI, talked about how excited he was to play for the Cowboys, even noting that his father was an avid fan of the team.

Sure, the Cowboys drafted CT safety Byron Jones in the first round in 2015 and Boise State defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence in the second round in 2014.

The Cowboys says they fielded calls regarding making a move, but in the end decided they would get a quality player with the 28th selection and made a decision to stay put. The discussion focused on whether the club would/should go with an edge rusher or corner.

The Cowboys lost two starting cornerbacks in free agency in Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne but added Nolan Carroll from the Eagles.

"He's a flexible, versatile guy, and we want to give him every chance to be a right end for us - we feel like he has the traits to do that", Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. He's short for a defensive end, and lacks the hand-fighting technique that makes Barnett so productive, but is a strong prospect to grow under the tutelage of Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli.

The Cowboys have been lacking at pass rush since DeMarcus Ware left after the 2013 season. If we didn't get a pressure player with this pick, we might not see one for a while. He became a full-time starter in his sophomore campaign, appearing in the first nine games before a lacerated kidney cut his season short. Here are five defensive backs the Cowboys could draft Friday night. Also, Charlton spent his entire football career playing defensive end, and did it at a very high level. This is the main reason why so many other teams passed on selecting Lewis, but the Cowboys clearly felt he was worth taking a risk on.

"I'm going to say natural physical ability, as well as the measurables, if those measurables fall in that definition of war daddy", Jerry Jones said.

Charlton, a first-round pick with a second-round grade, is their next bet.
