Charlton selected No. 28 by Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys select former Michigan defensive end Taco Charlton with its No. 28 overall selection in Thursday's NFL Draft.

Coming into Thursday’s 2017 NFL Draft, Michigan had only two first round draft picks in its previous ten seasons combine.

That all changed tonight.  

Just three picks after the Cleveland Browns selected Jabrill Peppers at No. 25, the Dallas Cowboys selected Michigan defensive end Taco Charlton with its No. 28 overall first round selection.

At 6-foot-6, 272-pounds, Charlton finished his senior season with 9.5 sacks in just 11 games. He was named to the All-Big Ten First Team by both the coaches and media alike. He also set a career high with nine tackles at Ohio State, including three TFLs and 2.5 sacks
