Cowboys' Taco Charlton: Quiet rookie campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton finished the regular season with 19 tackles, including three sacks, and a pass defended in 16 games.

The 28th overall pick in the 2017 draft got his NFL career off to a slow start, not recording his first sack until Week 9, and he never rose above being a depth option in the Cowboys' pass-rush rotation. Bigger things will be expected from Charlton next season, especially if David Irving (concussion) doesn't return to Dallas, but he still has a lot to prove before he'll be on the IDP radar.

Cowboys' Taco Charlton: Notches first NFL sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton recorded his first NFL sack in Sunday's win over the Chiefs.

The 28th overall pick in this year's draft has had a quiet start to his career, which isn't unusual for a defensive end adjusting to the strength and technique of NFL offensive linemen, but with DeMarcus Lawrence and David Irving commanding plenty of extra attention, Charlton is starting to find some lanes to the QB of his own. Don't be surprised if he joins the Cowboys' sack party more often in the second half.

Cowboys' Taco Charlton: May be more involved soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli wants to see Charlton more involved in upcoming games, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Charlton played a season-high 38 snaps in Week 7, recording just one tackle and one pass breakup. Marinelli says the defensive end is making "baby steps" but wants the rookie first-round pick to bring his game to another level. Charlton is the only defensive end that was chosen in the first round in the 2017 draft that hasn't recorded a sack yet, Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Cowboys' Taco Charlton: Plays in Saturday preseason contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (back) played in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.

The rookie had been dealing with a lingering back injury coming into Saturday's contest so it was a great sign to see him running around making plays. Charlton played 26 defensive snaps for the Cowboys and looks poised to make his mark on the defense come Week 1.
