Dating back to 2011, the Redskins have now selected at least seven players in nine consecutive drafts for the first time since the league adopted the seven-round format in 1994.
The Redskins completed the 2019 NFL Draft without making a selection in the second round. It is the ninth time since the seventh-round draft format was established the Redskins did not make a selection in the second round.
Including their eight selections in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Redskins have now selected eight or more players in three consecutive drafts for the first time since the NFL adopted the seven-round format in 1994.
With the 10 selections, the Redskins have now drafted at least 10 players in three of the last five NFL drafts.
The Redskins made two trades during the draft. On Day 1, the Redskins sent the No. 46 pick (2019) and a future second-round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft to the Indianapolis Colts for the No. 26 overall selection. On Day 2, the team traded the No. 96 overall pick to the Buffalo Bills for the Nos. 112 and 131 selections.
Of the Redskins 10 selections, three were made with picks acquired by trade, including draft-day trades with Indianapolis (LB Montez Sweat) and the Buffalo Bills (RB Bryce Love and G Wes Martin).
The Redskins selected three players using compensatory picks (LB Cole Holcomb, WR Kelvin Harmon and LB Jordan Brailford). The selections using compensatory picks were the most by the Redskins and the first selections using a compensatory pick since the organization drafted NT Chris Neild with a compensatory pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
The Redskins have selected at least three players with picks acquired via trade in each of the last six drafts. It is the team’s longest such stretch since a five-draft span from 1985-89.
The Redskins selected a pair of college teammates in three consecutive drafts to include: DL Jonathan Allen and Ryan Anderson (Alabama, 2017), DL Daron Payne and LB Shaun Dion Hamilton (Alabama, 2018), DL Tim Settle and CB Greg Stroman (Virginia Tech, 2018) and QB Dwayne Haskins and WR Terry McLaurin (Ohio State, 2019). This marks the second occurrence the Redskins have selected teammates in three consecutive drafts. The organization drafted teammates in three straight drafts from 2011-2013 including RB Roy Helu, S DeJon Gomes and WR Niles Paul (Nebraska, 2011), G Adam Gettis and CB Jordan Bernstine (Iowa 2012), and RB Chris Thompson and LB Brandon Jenkins (Florida State, 2013).
The Redskins have now selected at least one pair of college teammates in seven of the last nine 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 Daron Payne and Shaun Dion Hamilton; Virginia Tech’s Tim Settle and Greg Stroman in 2018; Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins and Terry McLaurin in 2019).
The 2019 NFL Draft marks the fourth time the Redskins have selected a pair of teammates out of Ohio State (1952, 1961, and 1963).
The Redskins made multiple picks in the seventh round for the fourth consecutive year, marking the team’s first four-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 four defensive players and have now picked at least four defensive players in five consecutive drafts for the first time since 1989-93, when the draft consisted of 12 rounds.
Nine of the Redskins’ draft picks played their collegiate careers in the Football Bowl Subdivision, ending a six-year streak of the team’s entire draft class playing at the FBS level. James Madison’s Jimmy Moreland played in the Football Championship Subdivision. The last Redskins draft pick to play in the Football Championship Subdivision was South Dakota’s Tom Compton (2012).
Nine of the 10 members of the Redskins’ draft class played at schools in “Power Five” conferences.
The Redskins selected three players from the Big Ten, two players from the Southeastern Conference, two players from the Atlantic Coast Conference, and one player each from the Pac-12 Conference, Big 12 Conference and Colonial Athletic Association. The SEC leads all conferences with 16 of the Redskins 53 selections since 2014, followed by the ACC with 12 selections.
