The Dallas Cowboys addressed one of there defensive needs by selecting the University of Oklahoma’s defensive end Charles Tapper
. Tapper possesses an NFL-ready frame with broad shoulders, disproportionately long arms (34 1/8 inches) and evenly distributed muscle mass.
He flashes enough initial quickness off the snap to force tackles to respect his outside speed and complements it with a powerful bull rush. Extends well off the snap and uses his long arms to generate push with his upper body, displaying nonstop effort to motor through blockers. While there are concerns about his quickness and agility, Tapper shows impressive straight-line speed – both when closing in on the quarterback and in downfield pursuit. He’s likely to test very well for a man of his size in the 40-yard dash, indicating perhaps un-“tapped” potential to be harnessed with better technique. Offers some positional versatility, often lining up in the four-point stance in Oklahoma’s scheme and often taking on multiple blockers.
