NFL Draft 2017: Cowboys get defensive help in Michigan pass rusher Taco Charlton

It wasn’t Tuesday, but the Cowboys still got a Taco.

The Cowboys selected Michigan defensive end Taco Charlton with the 28th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.

According to the report, an unidentified source confirmed Gregory was tested Feb. 21 and informed March 2 he had tested positive for marijuana. He’s already banned for the upcoming season and will likely be done in the NFL for good.

Gregory lost the appeal of his yearlong suspension for multiple violations of the NFL’s substance-abuse policy in January and was ruled ineligible to play for Dallas in the postseason. The second-year pass rusher from Nebraska was reinstated by the Cowboys in December after serving two other drug suspensions last season, the latter of which ended after Week 15.

Gregory, a second-round pick by the Cowboys in the 2015 NFL Draft, registered a sack and nine tackles in his two games last season.

Dorian Johnson, OG, Pittsburgh — Johnson is a tough, durable lineman who started for three seasons and was a two-time All-ACC selection and All-American last year. He’s a 6-5, 300-pound technician with the potential to be a long-term starter in the NFL. Though he gets too aggressive at times, Johnson has the functional power to succeed at the next level.

Roderick Johnson, OT, Florida State — Johnson has great length at 6-7, 298 pounds and has the frame teams want in a prototypical tackle. He needs to bend better and play with more balance, but if he can shore up his fundamentals, Johnson can be one team’s blindside blocker for years to come.nike_steelers_2879
