According to Kiper, Michigan’s Taco Charlton will join Spence on the defensive line.
Charlton recorded 9.5 sacks during the 2016 season, the 14th-most in the country. For his efforts, he was selected by both the coaches and the media as a first-team All-Big 10 selection. He was a three-year letter-winner at Michigan, appearing in 46 games and making 15 starts, all at defensive end. He finished his career with 94 tackles, 28 of which were for a loss, and 19 sacks.
Charlton is the fourth-best defensive lineman available, according to Kiper’s initial mock draft. He has Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett going NO. 1 to the Browns, Alabama’s versatile defensive lineman Jonathan Allen going No. 3 to the Bears and Stanford defensive end Solomon Thomas going No. 9 to the Bengals.
