After 46 games in a Maize and Blue uniform, it seems Taco Charlton is going to be wearing a blue five-pointed star for the foreseeable future. The 6’6”, 272-pound defensive end has been drafted by the Dallas Cowboys.
Taco was a very desirable candidate for a lot of teams at the next level, after having racked up 18.5 sacks and 94 tackles at U-M. He also played a key role in run support and locker room leadership here.
Taco also got noticeably better with each passing season. That’s a good sign as he transitions to a whole new dimension of competition, and it signals that we might not know his ceiling yet. He’ll try to reach his potential with a more complete system of coaches, trainers, and medical staff that will all be trying to help him be his best. I’m sure he’s going to remain a lot of fun to watch in Dallas.
What’s your grade on this one?
