Biography

The Dallas Cowboys added to their pass rush arsenal with the selection of Charles Tapper in the fourth round (101st overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft. A speed rusher with the tools and measurables to wreak havoc on opposing tackles at the defensive end position, Tapper ran the fastest 40-yard dash of any defensive lineman at the 2016 NFL Combine, clocking in at a blazing 4.59 seconds. He was slowed through training camp with a back injury that eventually put him on Reserve/Injured before his rookie season really got under way. He spent the entire year rehabbing and looks to make an impact in his debut in 2017.
