      NOTES ON THE REDSKINS’ OVERALL DRAFT

      · The Redskins made eight selections in the 2014 NFL Draft. The eight selections mark the third time in four years Washington has selected at least eight players (2011, 2012 and 2014).

      · Washington has now selected 36 players in the past four drafts, the franchise’s largest four-year total since the institution of the seven-round draft in 1994. The team last posted a four-year total of 36 across the 1991-94 NFL Drafts, a time frame which included two 12-round drafts, one eight-round draft and one seven-round draft.

      · Washington has made at least seven selections in four consecutive drafts for the first time since 1992-95.

      · The Redskins selected two players in the seventh round, marking the sixth time in the last seven years that the team has drafted multiple players in the seventh round. Washington has made multiple seventh-round selections in each year from 2008 through 2014 with exception of the 2013 NFL Draft.

      · Washington made two trades during the 2014 NFL Draft. On Friday, the team sent the No. 34 overall pick to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for the Nos. 47 and 78 overall picks. On Saturday, Washington sent the No. 178 overall pick to the Tennessee Titans for the Nos. 186 and 228 overall selections.

      · Washington selected four players with selections acquired by trade: LB Trent Murphy (No. 47 from Dallas), G Spencer Long (No. 78 from Dallas), RB Lache Seastrunk (No. 186 from Tennessee) and K Zach Hocker (No. 228 from Tennessee).

      · With the selection of Stanford’s Trent Murphy, the Redskins made a product of the conference now known as the Pac-12 the team’s top selection for the first time since selecting Stanford DB Duncan McColl with their top selection in the 1977 NFL Draft.

      · 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.

      · 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.
