Cowboys' Taco Charlton: Picked 28th by Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys selected Charlton in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 28th overall.

Charlton (6-foot-6, 277 pounds) was the leading pass rusher on a dominant Michigan defense, posting 10 sacks in 11 games in 2016. In the NFL, however, he profiles more as an edge-setting, strong-side end -- the kind of player who maybe sprinkles in a couple seasons with double-digit sacks, but mostly offers a steady, anchor-like presence rather than an edge-bending threat.

Cowboys' Sam Irwin-Hill: Signs with Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irwin-Hill signed a contract with the Cowboys on Friday, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Irwin-Hill, who went undrafted out of Arkansas in 2014, has yet to make his NFL debut, but should provide some token competition for Chris Jones in training camp. However, after Jones averaged a career-high 45.9 yards per punt last season, Irwin-Hill will likely have to blow the Cowboys away to have any sort of realistic chance at claiming a 53-man roster spot.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Will compete for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath is expected to compete in camp this year for the starting strong safety spot, Drew Davison of the Star-Telegram reports. "Every time we've given him a chance to play on defense, he does something really good for our football team," Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Monday. "Makes tackles. Makes interceptions. He's just demonstrated that he's worthy to be in this conversation about competing for that starting safety spot."

The Cowboys have a lot of snaps to replace in their secondary after losing four defensive backs in free agency, including safeties Barry Church and J.J. Wilcox, and all signs point to Heath taking on a much larger role in his fifth NFL season. Whether he's a Week 1 starter next to Byron Jones could depend on whether the team uses an early pick this weekend on a safety, but at the moment his only real competition on the roster comes from second-year player Kavon Frazier and former Viking Robert Blanton.

Cowboys' Jaylon Smith: Nerves starting to regenerate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The nerves in Smith's knee are starting to regenerate, and he's increasing his muscle control in the injured knee, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It was announced Friday that Smith was on track to participate in OTAs and training camp before making his NFL debut in 2017, and it's now clearer how far he has progressed in rehab. He reportedly can lift his toes and foot on his own for the first time since suffering the injury. He has a long way to go in recovery, but it looks increasingly likely that he'll eventually make a full recovery.

Cowboys' Charles Tapper: Expects to be ready for OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapper (back) is expected to return to practice when the Cowboy's begin OTAs in May, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Tapper didn't play in 2016 after being selected in the fourth round of last year's draft. The back injury he suffered last summer appears to be a thing of the past and shouldn't limit him in offseason activities much longer.
