      Long, 23, was born on Nov. 8, 1990, and attended Elkhorn (Neb.) H.S.

      NOTES ON THE SELECTION OF TRENT MURPHY

      · Murphy is the first selection of the Jay Gruden era and is the 35th selection by the Redskins under Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen.

      · Murphy is the 432nd selection made by the Redskins in the Common Draft era (since 1967) and the 34th second-round selection in that time frame. He is the 52nd second-round selection by the Redskins all-time since the institution of the draft in 1936.

      · The selection marks the third time the Redskins have taken a pass rusher with their first selection in the last six drafts (DE/LB Brian Orakpo in 2009 and LB Ryan Kerrigan in 2011).

      · Including the selection of CB David Amerson with their initial pick last year, the Redskins have now selected a defensive player with their top pick in consecutive seasons for the first time since drafting S Sean Taylor, CB Carlos Rogers, LB Rocky McIntosh and S LaRon Landry with their first selections in the 2004-07 NFL Drafts.

      · Murphy is the 15th Stanford product selected by the Redskins all-time, joining E Keith Topping (1936), B Bill Joslyn (1944), B Willard Sheller (1944), B Bill Shipkey (1945), C Jim McCurdy (1945), B Lynn Brownson (1947), B Bob Anderson (1948), B Bob Mathias (1953), E Sam Morley (1954), QB Don Bunce (1972), DE Duncan McColl (1977), G Brad Badger (1997), QB Todd Husak (2000) and LB Jarred Newberry (2005).

      · Murphy is the sixth Stanford product selected by the Redskins in the Common Draft era (since 1967), tied for 11th-most by a single college in that timeframe.

      · Murphy’s selection at No. 47 marks the highest the Redskins have taken a Stanford product since selecting E Keith Topping with the No. 11 overall pick in the 1936 NFL Draft.

      · With Murphy’s selection, the Redskins used a second-round pick to draft a linebacker for the first time since selecting McIntosh in the second round (No. 35 overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft.

      · Murphy is the third player selected by the Redskins at No. 47 all-time, joining T Larry Lutz (1936) and DE Shane Collins (1992).

      · All three of Washington’s all-time selections at No. 47 have played collegiately in the conference now known as the Pac-12.

      · Murphy is the first Pac-12 Conference player selected by the Redskins since selecting UCLA WR Terrence Austin in 2010. The two are the only Pac-12 products selected by the Redskins in the Allen era.

      NOTES ON THE SELECTION OF MORGAN MOSES

      · Moses is the second selection of the Jay Gruden era and is the 36th selection by the Redskins under Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen.

      · Moses is the 433rd selection made by the Redskins in the Common Draft era (since 1967) and the 32nd third-round selection in that time frame. He is the 61st third-round selection by the Redskins all-time since the institution of the draft in 1936.

      · The selection marks the earliest the Redskins have taken an offensive lineman since selecting two-time Pro Bowler Trent Williams with the fourth overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft.

      · Moses is the first player from the University of Virginia selected by the Redskins since the team picked G Jim Huddleston in the sixth round of the 1986 NFL Draft. The Redskins’ last four selections from UVA have all been offensive linemen.

      · Moses becomes the ninth player from the University of Virginia selected by the Redskins all-time, joining E Tom Dudley (1947), B Jonny Papit (1951), E Fred Polzer (1958), RB Jeff Anderson (1969), DT Rick Brand (1969), T Paul Rogers (1969), C Dan Ryczek (1971) and Huddleston.

      · Moses’ selection is the highest the Redskins have ever selected a UVA product. Jonny Papit was previously the highest-selected UVA player by the Redskins at the No. 76 overall pick in the 1951 NFL Draft.

      · Moses is the sixth player selected by the Redskins at No. 66 all-time, joining G Rotta Holland (1937), B George Peters (1942), B Dick Lynch (1958), KR Mike Oliphant (1988) and DT Tracy Rocker (1989).

      · Moses is the seventh Redskins draft pick in the Allen era to have competed collegiately in the Atlantic Coast Conference, the most of any conference in that timeframe. The Redskins selected three ACC products in both the 2011 (Clemson’s Jarvis Jenkins, Miami’s Leonard Hankerson and Florida State’s Markus White) and 2013 drafts (NC State’s David Amerson, Florida State’s Chris Thompson and Florida State’s Brandon Jenkins).

      NOTES ON THE SELECTION OF SPENCER LONG

      · Long is the third selection of the Jay Gruden era and is the 37th selection by the Redskins under Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen.

      · Long was the Redskins’ second pick of the third round, marking the first time the Redskins had made two third-round selections since 2002 (CB Rashad Bauman and WR Cliff Russell).

      · Long is the 434th selection made by the Redskins in the Common Draft era and the 33rd third-round selection in that time frame. He is the 62nd third-round selection by the Redskins all-time since the institution of the draft in 1936.

      · Including the selection of Morgan Moses, Washington selected offensive linemen with consecutive picks for the first time since selecting C Erik Cook and T Selvish Capers with two seventh-round selections in the 2010 NFL Draft.

      · Long is the 20th Nebraska Cornhusker selected by the Washington Redskins all-time, tied with Alabama for fourth-most of any school in team history.
