    NOTES ON THE REDSKINS’ OVERALL DRAFT

    · Dating back to 2011, the Redskins have now selected at least seven players in eight consecutive drafts for the first time since the league adopted the seven-round format in 1994.

    · Including their 10 selections in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Redskins have now selected eight or more players in back-to-back drafts for only the third time since the NFL adopted the seven-round format in 1994, including instances in 2011-12, 2014-15 and 2017-18.

    · The Redskins made two trades during the draft. On Day 2, the Redskins sent the Nos. 44 and 142 overall picks to the San Francisco 49ers for the Nos. 59 and 74 overall selections. On Day 3, the team traded the Nos. 205 and 231 picks to the Los Angeles Rams for the Nos. 197 and 256 selections.

    · Of the Redskins’ eight selections, seven were made with picks acquired by trade, including draft-day trades with San Francisco (RB Derrius Guice and T Geron Christian) and the Los Angeles Rams (LB Shaun Dion Hamilton and WR Trey Quinn), an offseason trade with Denver (S Troy Apke and DL Tim Settle) and a 2017 preseason trade with the Rams (CB Greg Stroman).

    · The Redskins’ seven selections with picks acquired by trades are the team’s most since 2011 (eight). The only player selected by Washington with one of the team’s original picks was DL Da’Ron Payne with the No. 13 overall selection.

    · The Redskins have selected at least four players with picks acquired via trade in each of the last five drafts. It is the team’s longest such stretch since a five-draft span from 1985-89.
    · The Redskins selected two pairs of college teammates in the same draft for the first time since 2012.

    · The Redskins have now selected at least one pair of college teammates in six of the last eight drafts (Nebraska’s Roy Helu Jr., DeJon Gomes and Niles Paul in 2011; SMU’s Josh LeRibeus and Richard Crawford and Iowa’s Adam Gettis and Jordan Bernstine in 2012; Florida State’s Chris Thompson and Brandon Jenkins in 2013; Arkansas’ Martrell Spaight and Tevin Mitchel in 2015; Alabama’s Jonathan Allen and Ryan Anderson in 2017; Alabama’s Da’Ron Payne and Shaun Dion Hamilton and Virginia Tech’s Tim Settle and Greg Stroman in 2018).

    · The 2018 NFL Draft marks the sixth time the Redskins have selected a pair of teammates out of Alabama (1941, 1948, 1951, 1962 and 2017).

    · The 2018 NFL Draft marks the first time the Redskins have selected a pair of teammates out of Virginia Tech.

    · The Redskins have now selected a pair of college teammates from the same school in back-to-back years for the first time since 1964-65, when the team selected a pair of teammates from Arizona State in both drafts. In those drafts, the Redskins selected Pro Football Hall of Fame HB/WR Charley Taylor and G John Seedborg from Arizona State in 1964, and then added legendary TE Jerry Smith and HB Dave Estrada from the same university in 1965.

    · With four selections from the University of Alabama across the 2017-18 drafts, the Redskins selected at least four players from a single school in a two-year span for the first time since selecting T Mark Doak (No. 147 overall), DB Ardell Johnson (No. 277) and G Dennis Pavelka (No. 412) from Nebraska in 1975 and selecting Nebraska DE Dean Gissler (No. 308) in 1976.

    · The Redskins made multiple picks in the seventh round for the third consecutive year, marking the team’s first three-year stretch with multiple seventh-round picks since selecting at least two players in that round in each of the 2010-12 NFL Drafts.

    · The Redskins selected five defensive players and have now picked at least five defensive players in consecutive drafts for the first time since 1989-90, when the draft consisted of 12 rounds.

    · The Redskins have now selected at least one defensive lineman in each of the last three drafts (Matt Ioannidis in 2016, Jonathan Allen in 2017 and Da’Ron Payne and Tim Settle in 2017). It marks the first time the team has taken a defensive lineman in three straight drafts since selecting one in each of the 2000-02 drafts, when all three selections were taken in sixth round or later (Del Cowsette in 2000, Mario Monds in 2001 and Greg Scott in 2002).

    · The last time the Redskins took a defensive lineman in the fifth round or earlier in three consecutive drafts was from 1991-93 (Bobby Wilson in 1991, Shane Collins in 1992 and Sterling Palmer in 1993).

    · All eight of the Redskins’ draft picks played their collegiate careers in the Football Bowl Subdivision, marking the sixth straight year the team’s entire draft class had played at the FBS level. The last Redskins draft pick to play in the Football Championship Subdivision was South Dakota’s Tom Compton (2012).
    · Seven of the eight members of the Redskins’ draft class played at schools in “Power Five” conferences.
    · The Redskins selected three players from the Southeastern Conference, three players from the Atlantic Coast Conference, and one player each from the Big Ten and American Athletic Conferences. The SEC leads all conferences with 14 of the Redskins’ 43 selections since 2014, followed by the ACC with 10 selections.


    NOTES ON THE SELECTION OF DA’RON PAYNE

    · Payne is the 467th selection made by the Redskins in the Common Draft era (since 1967) and the 29th first-round selection in that time frame. He is the 60th first-round selection by the Redskins all-time since the institution of the draft in 1936.

    · Payne’s selection marks the second straight year in which the Redskins have selected a defensive player with their first selection of the draft (DL Jonathan Allen in 2017). The last time the Redskins selected defensive players with their first selection in consecutive drafts was in the 2013-14 drafts, in which the team selected CB David Amerson and LB Trent Murphy, respectively (both in the second round).

    · With the first-round selections of Allen and Payne across the 2017-18 drafts, the Redskins have now selected a defensive player in the first round of consecutive drafts for the first time since 2004 (S Sean Taylor) and 2005 (CB Carlos Rogers).

    · The selections of Payne and Allen – both University of Alabama products – in the first round of back-to-back years marks the first time the Redskins have selected players from the same school in the first round of consecutive drafts in the Common Draft era. It is the second such occurrence in the team’s full draft history, including the selections of Oklahoma’s George Thomas and Leon Heath in the 1950 and 1951 drafts, respectively.

    · Payne and Allen became the first set of college teammates from the same position group selected by the same NFL franchise in consecutive first rounds since the San Francisco 49ers took Oregon defensive linemen Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner in the 2015-16 drafts, respectively.

    · Payne is the 10th defensive player selected by the Redskins in the first round since 1999, joining CB Champ Bailey (1999), LB LaVar Arrington (2000), S Sean Taylor (2004), CB Carlos Rogers (2005), S LaRon Landry (2007), DE/LB Brian Orakpo (2009), LB Ryan Kerrigan (2011) and DL Jonathan Allen (2017). Nine of the 10 defensive players selected by the Redskins in the first round in that time frame have earned at least one Pro Bowl selection during their career. The lone exception – Allen – was limited to five games by a season-ending Lisfranc injury as a rookie last year.

    · Payne’s selection marks the sixth time in the Common Draft era that the Redskins have selected a defensive lineman in the first round, joining Jonathan Allen (2017), Ryan Kerrigan (2011), Brian Orakpo (2009, transitioned to linebacker in 2010), Kenard Lang (1997) and Bobby Wilson (1991). The Redskins also selected Tracy Rocker (1989, third round), Markus Koch (1986, second round), Bob Slater (1984, second round), Duncan McColl (1977, fourth round) and Bill Brundige (1970, second round) with the team’s first selections of each of the drafts listed.

    · With the selections of Payne and Allen, the Redskins have now used first-round selections on defensive linemen in consecutive drafts for the first time in the Common Draft era.

    · Payne is the 24th player from the University of Alabama selected by the Redskins all-time, joining B Riley Smith (1936), B Charley Holm (1939), E Sandy Sanford (1940), T Fred Davis (1941), G Ed Hickerson (1941), G Tony Leon (1943), B Bobby Jenkins (1945), T Fay Mills (1946), B Harry Gilmer (1948), B Lowell Tew (1948), T Dick Flowers (1949), E Ed White (1950), B Eddie Salem (1951), C Elliot Speed (1951), B Billy Hicks (1956), T Billy Neighbors (1962), E Tommy Brooker (1962), DB Steve Higginbotham (1972), DT Thomas Rayam (1990), T Chris Samuels (2000), G Arie Kouandjio (2015), DL Jonathan Allen (2017) and LB Ryan Anderson (2017).

    · Payne’s selection at No. 13 marks the fifth-highest the Redskins have selected a player from the University of Alabama, trailing B Harry Gilmer (No. 1 in 1948), B Riley Smith (No. 2 in 1936), T Chris Samuels (No. 3 in 2000) and B Lowell Tew (No. 4 in 1948).

    · Payne is the eighth Southeastern Conference product selected by the Redskins in the first round in the Common Draft era. The Redskins have now selected an SEC product in the first round of consecutive drafts for the first time since 1999 (Georgia CB Champ Bailey) and 2000 (Alabama T Chris Samuels).

    · Payne becomes the third player selected by the Redskins all-time with the No. 13 overall pick, joining FB Ray McDonald (1967) and DE/LB Brian Orakpo (2009).

    NOTES ON THE SELECTION OF DERRIUS GUICE

    · Guice is the 468th selection made by the Redskins in the Common Draft era (since 1967) and the 38th second-round selection in that time frame. He is the 56th second-round selection by the Redskins all-time since the institution of the draft in 1936.

    · Guice becomes the first offensive player selected by the Redskins in the second round since the team selected three offensive players in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft.

    · Prior to Guice’s selection, the Redskins had selected a defensive player with their last six second-round picks, including the selections of LB Ryan Anderson (2017), S Su’a Cravens (2016), LB Preston Smith (2015), LB Trent Murphy (2014), CB David Amerson (2013) and DL Jarvis Jenkins (2011). (Note: The team did not make a second-round selection in 2012.) The six consecutive second-round picks on defensive players prior to Guice represented the longest stretch used by the Redskins on one side of the ball in the second round in the Common Draft era.

    · Guice becomes the first running back selected by the Redskins in the second round since the team drafted Iowa’s Ladell Betts with the No. 56 overall pick in 2002.

    · Dating back to 2011, the Redskins have now selected a running back in eight consecutive drafts, the team’s longest stretch since taking a running back in nine consecutive years across the 1983-91 drafts, which each consisted of 12 rounds.

    · Guice is the 12th LSU product selected by the Redskins all-time, joining E Charlie Webb (1946), B Red Knight (1947), E Charlie Webb (1947), B Dan Sandifer (1948), T Ray Potter (1952), B Vince Gonzales (1956), E Billy Shoemake (1959), RB Bob Brunet (1968), TE Robert Royal (2002), S LaRon Landry (2007) and LB Perry Riley (2010).

    · Guice becomes the first LSU product selected by the Redskins in the second round in franchise history. His selection marks the fourth-highest the Redskins have selected a player from LSU, trailing S LaRon Landry’s selection at No. 6 overall in 2007, B Red Knight’s selection at No. 17 overall in 1947 and B Dan Sandifer’s selection at No. 28 overall in 1948.

    · Including the selections DL Jonathan Allen and LB Ryan Anderson in 2017 and the selections of DL Da’Ron Payne and Guice in 2018, the Redskins have selected four players from the Southeastern Conference with their four most-recent first- and second-round picks. It marks the first time the Redskins have taken four players from the same conference with four consecutive first- or second-round picks in the Common Draft era.

    · Guice becomes the sixth player selected by the Redskins all-time with the No. 59 overall pick, joining T Roy Young (1938), T Bob Hendren (1946), T Hank Harris (1947), B Gary Lowe (1956) and FB Jim Snowden (1964).

    · Guice was selected with a pick acquired by the Redskins in a draft day trade in which the Redskins sent the Nos. 44 and 142 overall picks to San Francisco in exchange for the Nos. 59 and 75 overall selections. It marked the Redskins first selection using an acquired pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. The No. 59 overall selection originally belonged to the New Orleans Saints, who traded the pick to San Francisco during the 2017 NFL Draft for the right to select 2017 Offensive Rookie of the Year Alvin Kamara.

    NOTES ON THE SELECTION OF GERON CHRISTIAN

    · Christian is the 469th selection made by the Redskins in the Common Draft era (since 1967) and the 35th third-round selection in that time frame. He is the 65th third-round selection by the Redskins all-time since the institution of the draft in 1936.

    · Christian becomes the first offensive lineman selected by the Redskins in the third round since the team selected two linemen – T Morgan Moses and G/C Spencer Long – in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Those two players combined to appear in 96 regular season games with 80 starts for the Redskins across the 2014-17 campaigns.

    · Christian becomes the ninth offensive lineman selected by the Redskins in the first three rounds since 2000. Three of the offensive linemen selected in that timespan (Chris Samuels in 2000, Trent Williams in 2010 and Brandon Scherff in 2015) have combined for 14 career Pro Bowl appearances.

    · Christian is the fifth player from Louisville selected by the Redskins all-time, joining T Ron Petty (1961), TE Jamie Asher (1995), LB Robert McCune (2005) and LB Josh Harvey-Clemons (2017).

    · With Christian’s selection in 2018 and the seventh-round selection of LB Josh Harvey-Clemons in 2017, the Redskins have now selected a Louisville product in consecutive drafts for the first time in team history.

    · Christian becomes the first Louisville product selected by the Redskins in the third round in franchise history. His selection at No. 74 marks the highest the Redskins have selected a player from Louisville, surpassing TE Jamie Asher’s No. 137 overall selection in the 1995 NFL Draft.

    · Christian becomes the fourth player selected by the Redskins all-time with the No. 74 overall pick, joining G Marcel Saunders (1936), E Russ Brown (1964) and G Paul Siever (1992).

    NOTES ON THE SELECTION OF TROY APKE

    · Apke is the 470th selection made by the Redskins in the Common Draft era (since 1967) and the 34th fourth-round selection in that time frame. He is the 49th fourth-round selection by the Redskins all-time since the institution of the draft in 1936.

    · Apke’s selection with the No. 109 overall pick marks the highest the Redskins have selected a safety since selecting LaRon Landry with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. (Note: Su’a Cravens was initially selected as a linebacker with the No. 53 overall pick in 2016).

    · Apke becomes the second safety selected by the Redskins in the fourth round in the past two years after the team selected Montae Nicholson with the No. 123 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Apke and Nicholson are both natives of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, as Apke played his high school career at Mt. Lebanon High School and Nicholson completed his prep career at Gateway High School, approximately 25 miles away.

    · The 2017-18 drafts mark the Redskins’ first time selecting the same position in the fourth round in back-to-back years since selecting linebackers Shawn Barber and Nate Stimson in the fourth round of the 1998 and 1999 NFL Drafts, respectively.

    · Apke is the 22nd Penn State product selected by the Redskins all-time, joining G Johnny Jaffurs (1943), B Joe Colone (1947), B Don Bailey (1955), E Jack Faris (1958), QB Richie Lucas (1960), T Andy Stynchula (1960), G Earl Kohlhaas (1960), B Jim Kerr (1961), E Bob Mitinger (1962), B Ton Urbanik (1964), DB Paul Johnson (1970), LB James Kates (1970), LB Rich Milot (1979), LB Larry Kubin (1981), LB Andre Collins (1990), G Paul Siever (1992), WR Terry Smith (1992), C Greg Huntington (1993), T Andre Johnson (1996), LB LaVar Arrington (2000) and RB Evan Royster (2011).

    · Penn State’s 22 all-time selections by the Redskins are the fourth-most of any program, trailing Notre Dame (34), USC (30) and Alabama (24). Their 12 selections by the Redskins in the Common Draft era are tied with Nebraska for the most in that timeframe.

    · Apke becomes the first defensive player from Penn State selected by the Redskins since selecting three-time Pro Bowl linebacker LaVar Arrington with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2000 NFL Draft.

    · Apke becomes the sixth player selected by the Redskins all-time with the No. 109 overall pick, joining G Henry Bartos (1938), T Monte Moncrief (1946), RB Jamie Morris (1988), DB Rico Labbe (1990) and QB Sage Rosenfels (2001).

    NOTES ON THE SELECTION OF TIM SETTLE

    · Settle is the 471st selection made by the Redskins in the Common Draft era (since 1967) and the 49th fifth-round selection in that time frame. He is the 74th fifth-round selection by the Redskins all-time since the institution of the draft in 1936.

    · Settle is the second defensive lineman selected by the Redskins in the fifth round in the past three drafts. The team selected DL Matt Ioannidis with the No. 152 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

    · With the selection of Settle and the first-round selection of DL Da’Ron Payne, the Redskins have now selected two defensive linemen in the same draft for the first time since selecting Anthony Montgomery and Kedric Golston in the 2006 NFL Draft.

    · Settle played his prep career at Stonewall Jackson H.S. in Manassas, Va., approximately 25 miles from team headquarters in Ashburn, Va. Including the selection of Stone Bridge H.S.’s Jonathan Allen last year, the Redskins have now selected players from the Northern Virginia metro area in back-to-back drafts.

    · Settle is the seventh Virginia Tech product selected by the Redskins all-time, joining C Buzz Nutter (1953), E Tom Petty (1955), TE Ken Barefoot (1968), T Derek Smith (1999), DB Kyshoen Jarrett (2015) and CB Kendall Fuller (2016).

    · Settle becomes the third Virginia Tech product selected by the Redskins in the last four drafts, with all three picks coming on the defensive side of the ball.

    · Settle becomes the fourth player selected by the Redskins all-time with the No. 163 overall pick, joining T Doug Conaway (1952), TE Danzell Lee (1985) and DE Dexter Nottage (1994).

    NOTES ON THE SELECTION OF LB SHAUN DION HAMILTON

    · Hamilton is the 472nd selection made by the Redskins in the Common Draft era (since 1967) and the 57th sixth-round selection in that time frame. He is the 83rd sixth-round selection by the Redskins all-time since the institution of the draft in 1936.

    · Hamilton is the second linebacker from Alabama selected by the Redskins in the last two drafts, joining LB Ryan Anderson (No. 49 overall in 2017). Including the selections of DL Jonathan Allen and DL Da’Ron Payne in the 2017 and 2018 drafts, respectively, the Redskins have now selected a defensive lineman and linebacker from Alabama in back-to-back drafts.

    · Hamilton is the 25th player from the University of Alabama selected by the Redskins all-time, joining B Riley Smith (1936), B Charley Holm (1939), E Sandy Sanford (1940), T Fred Davis (1941), G Ed Hickerson (1941), G Tony Leon (1943), B Bobby Jenkins (1945), T Fay Mills (1946), B Harry Gilmer (1948), B Lowell Tew (1948), T Dick Flowers (1949), E Ed White (1950), B Eddie Salem (1951), C Elliot Speed (1951), B Billy Hicks (1956), T Billy Neighbors (1962), E Tommy Brooker (1962), DB Steve Higginbotham (1972), DT Thomas Rayam (1990), T Chris Samuels (2000), G Arie Kouandjio (2015), DL Jonathan Allen (2017), LB Ryan Anderson (2017) and DL Da’Ron Payne (2018).

    · Alabama’s 25 all-time selections by the Redskins are third-most from any school in franchise history, trailing only Notre Dame (34) and USC (30).

    · Hamilton becomes the third player selected by the Redskins all-time with the No. 197 overall pick, joining T Len Vella (1962) and QB Gus Frerotte (1994).

    NOTES ON THE SELECTION OF GREG STROMAN

    · Stroman is the 473rd selection made by the Redskins in the Common Draft era (since 1967) and the 62nd seventh-round selection in that time frame. He is the 93rd seventh-round selection by the Redskins all-time since the institution of the draft in 1936.

    · Stroman is the eighth Virginia Tech product selected by the Redskins all-time, joining C Buzz Nutter (1953), E Tom Petty (1955), TE Ken Barefoot (1968), T Derek Smith (1999), DB Kyshoen Jarrett (2015), CB Kendall Fuller (2016) and DL Tim Settle (2018).

    · With Stroman’s selection, the Redskins selected teammates from Virginia Tech in a single draft for the first time in team history.

    · In addition to playing collegiately with fifth-round pick Tim Settle, Stroman played his prep career with Settle at Stonewall Jackson H.S. in Manassas, Va., approximately 25 miles from team headquarters in Ashburn, Va.

    · Stroman is the third Virginia Tech defensive back selected by the Redskins in the last four drafts, joining the selections of DB Kyshoen Jarrett (2015) and CB Kendall Fuller (2016).

    · The Redskins have now selected a cornerback in the seventh round in back-to-back years, including the selection of Joshua Holsey in 2017.

    NOTES ON THE SELECTION OF TREY QUINN

    · Quinn is the 474th selection made by the Redskins in the Common Draft era (since 1967) and the 63rd seventh-round selection in that time frame. He is the 94th seventh-round selection by the Redskins all-time since the institution of the draft in 1936.

    · Quinn was selected with the final pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, a selection now known as “Mr. Irrelevant.” The nomenclature began in 1976, and is part of “Irrelevant Week,” described thusly by the organizers’ website: “Over the past 40 years, Irrelevant Week has become a much-anticipated and beloved celebration honoring football’s underdog, while also making charitable contributions to the community. In fact, through Irrelevant Week, the organization has donated more than $1 million to charities over the past three decades. Previous beneficiaries include the American Cancer Society, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Goodwill Industries, YMCA, Special Olympics, Habitat for Humanity, NFL Alumni, and the American Red Cross, among others.”

    · Quinn is the second member of the Redskins to be tabbed as Mr. Irrelevant since its inception in 1976, joining Nebraska C Matt Elliott (1992). The Redskins also selected G Bo Bogovich with the last pick of the 1943 NFL Draft prior to the adoption of the pick’s nickname in 1976.

    Default Re: Skins Select Eight Players in 2018 NFL Draft

    I think we got 5 guys that could start right away if needed but guys like the tackle and safety won’t be needed right away. Our 3 players taken in the 6/7 round won’t start but could in a couple of years. This is the best and deepest our Dline has been since probably the 80s early 90s
    I’m just wondering is it to early to start thinking about how many sacks Kerrigan and smith will get?

    I like the Tim Settle pick...did not think he'd go into the 5th round.

    I don't know enough about Apke.

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.

    Apke is a one year starter so a late bloomer but played good he is fast and can cover. He does have a tendacy to lose the ball in tracking and when not in man to man does take a bad angle from time to time. Decent against the run.
    Won’t start out as a starter but could if needed.

    This defense can find room for a guy that runs a 4.34 and is aggressive moving to the ball

    We are working rapidly on having a Crimson Hokie defense and I'm okay with that.

    I believe that the two 7th rounders have punt return experience. Maybe a shot to get Crowder and his fumbles off of that responsibility.

    I'm really done with seeing Crowder returning punts. I know he was a dangerous returner in college, but the one thing you can't have in that role is a lack of confidence - and last season he clearly lost his confidence. We need to find a guy who can perform that role consistently because Crowder can't and critical mistakes with punt returns can cost you wins.

    Williams telegraphed their intent this morning, that they'd like to take those duties off of Crowder's shoulders this year and let him focus on being the slot receiver.

    Crowder needs to focus on improving at WR. He was very uneven last year when Garcon and Jackson weren't around to take the attention of the defense away from him.

    Stroman with 4-5 returns for TDs seems tailor made to being a punt returner here. At 5'10 and 182 he is a bit small to play CB, but in the seventh round if we can find a regular returner that can get us back up to 9-10 yards a return on average that's a GREAT pick.
