Defensive end Charles Tapper was released by the Cowboys Saturday as part of the team’s final cuts.
Tapper was selected in the fourth-round in 2016. He has recorded one sack in two career games. If he clears waivers he will likely land on the Cowboys’ practice squad.
Greg Gabriel of The National Football Post expects Charles Tapper to enter the league as a rotational player but eventually take over as a starter. Tapper is projected to go in the middle rounds of the upcoming NFL Draft.
Tapper's size (6-foot-3, 276 pounds) has him projected as a versatile defensive lineman. This versatility should make him attractive to several teams, though it's unclear where he'll ultimately line up. Some consider him a DT, but in order to fill that role he'd likely need to put on weight.
