Biography

COLLEGE: 

When the Dallas Cowboys drafted Taco Charlton with the 28th pick in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, the club addressed a position of need while staying true to their board, picking up a top-quality edge rusher. Despite starting only 15 of the 46 games he played at Michigan, Charlton has shown flashes of his big play potential and his ability to get to the quarterback.

2014:

  • Started one of the 12 games he played as a sophomore and recorded 19 tackles, 5.5 for losses, 3.5 sacks and three quarterback hurries.
