It was not exactly all rainbows and unicorns. But lots of food.

The Dallas Cowboys took Taco Charlton with the 28th pick of the first round of the NFL Draft - and the reactions on Twitter made it clear that a lot of people would rather have gone another direction, like EDGE T.J. Watt or cornerback Kevin King.

Well, that’s kinda how it goes with the Cowboys’ fan base. But there were some other, more positive (or in some cases, just less negative) reactions.

But with a name like Taco, there was a lot of room for humor, too.

And my personal favorite (‘cause I never met a pun I didn’t like):

But we’ll leave the last word to the sage, One Cool Customer, with some data analysis that may shed a little light on why this was the pick for Dallas.
