Top Newcomers

DE – Taco Charlton – Round 1

Charlton wasn’t as lauded as Derek Barnett or Charles Harris and he didn’t put up the numbers like Takkarist McKinley — all three heard their names called before Dallas sent in their slip to commissioner Roger Goodell.

Whether Charlton makes his presence felt immediately or not, the Cowboys didn’t bluff on their wishes for a pass rusher, and they have a starting point as they begin building for the 2017 season.

Charlton still needs a bit of polish, but relies on his length and power off the edge. His coming-out party transpired a season ago when he posted 13.5 tackles for loss alongside double-digit sacks (10.0). He got better as the season progressed and to pad the praise, shined on the biggest stage (check out his tape against Ohio State).

CB – Chidobe Awuzie – Round 2 

The first of three cornerbacks the Cowboys drafted, Awuzie was a flat-out stud for Colorado, arguably the most underrated secondary in the nation last season. With all the free-agent departures in the secondary, the Cowboys got to work right away.

WR/KR – Ryan Switzer – Round 4 

Dallas fans will latch on to Switzer, if they haven’t already. One of the nation’s top threats as a kick returner, Switzer progressively morphed into a true wide receiver at North Carolina.

Scout’s Take

On paper you would assume that the Dallas Cowboys would regress in 2017, based on their offseason free-agent losses. They lost 11 players to other teams and two to retirement. That is a lot of production, leadership and depth, but their subtle free-agent additions and solid drafts make them a young team that thinks it will be better than their 2016 team that finished the regular season at 13-3. Now the Cowboys’ sights are set on the Super Bowl. They have a lot of confidence that their young players are ready to step into bigger roles and that their improved athleticism will match the strong teams they face.” – FanRag Sports’ Gary Horton
