With the 28th overall pick, the Cowboys select Michigan defensive end Taco Charlton. His sack total increased each year with 9.5 last year and he gives the Cowboys more options on their pass rush with position flexibility.

Atlanta jumps in front of the Cowboys to take UCLA pass rusher Takk McKinley. With his shoulder injury it is possible he could open year on PUP. A Cowboys target off the board.

Cowboys working the phones in their draft room with their pick coming. Trading down? Up? Is Trader Jerry returning?

Miami Dolphins end the Charles Harris' hopes for the Cowboys by taking the Mizzou defensive end at No. 22. Pass-rush options remain for the Cowboys but wonder if they will look to make a small move to get their guy.

Tennessee Titans take Southern Cal corner Adoree Jackson. He would have been option for the Cowboys at No. 28. He is the third of 29 players to visit The Star off the board so far.

Really good fit for Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City. Structured system under Andy Reid that will develop his footwork, timing and overall mechanics. Plus, with the west coast route tree, Mahomes can showcase his arm strength throwing the ball inside of the numbers. Find the window and expose the coverage.

Todd McShay ESPN Senior Writer 

QB Patrick Mahomes is loaded with talent. If you focus on his mechanics and his backyard style of play, you're not going to like him. If you focus on the results and his potential, you see star qualities. Kansas City is a great home for Mahomes. He can learn from Andy Reid and won't be rushed onto the field.

As for the Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes, a QB needing time to develop could do much worse than to spend that time with Andy Reid.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chiefs drafted a quarterback in the first round for the first time since 1983 in Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes.I had Chiefs taking Mahomes in ESPN NFL Nation mock draft, but at 27.

Ezekiel Elliott went No. 4 last year to the Cowboys. Maybe he's added value to the running back position with Leonard Fournette going No. 4 overall to Jacksonville and Christian McCaffrey going No. 8 overall to Carolina this year.
