  • 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.
