Redskins' Montae Nicholson: Picked by Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins selected Nicholson in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 123rd overall.

The Michigan State defense fell off in 2016, but Nicholson was a good starter over the last two years, and his athletic testing at the Combine imply starting potential in the NFL. At 6-foot-2, 212 pounds, Nicholson ran the 40-yard dash in 4.42 seconds, adding a 125-inch broad jump. Washington has a few options at safety, but there might be an opening for Nicholson to compete for a starting role right away.

Redskins' Samaje Perine: Headed to Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins selected Perine in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 114th overall.

This is an excellent landing spot for Perine, who left Oklahoma as the school's all-time leading rusher. He's a big, physical back with a thick frame (5-foot-11, 233) who'll hold up at the next level. He's not a burner by any means with a 4.65 40-yard dash at the combine, but Perine possesses excellent vision and can do damage once he reaches the second level. Washington's lack of a clear-cut No.1 running back means that Perine could push for playing time early in his career.

Redskins' Fabian Moreau: Picked by Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins selected Moreau (pectoral) in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 81st overall.

Originally a projected top-50 pick, a torn pectoral muscle suffered during the UCLA pro day set back Moreau's stock with a 4-to-6 month prognosis. That means he might be ready to play as early as late July, and as late as late September.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Headed to Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins selected Anderson in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 49th overall.

Anderson will play inside in Washington's 3-4, and he should push for a starting role right away after Su'a Cravens was moved to safety. If he can earn a three-down role, Anderson could make an IDP impact early on in his career. He wasn't a good athletic tester prior to the draft, but Anderson was a disruptive leading contributor on a dominant Alabama defense, posting nine sacks and 19 tackles for loss in 2016.

Redskins' Matt Jones: Available on trade market
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins are shopping Jones, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Selected in the third round of the 2015 draft on the strength of his workout numbers, Jones has thus far displayed some big-play ability but without any kind of consistency. He has 243 career carries for 950 yards (3.9 YPC), with six lost fumbles in 20 games. Undrafted rookie Robert Kelley usurped Jones for the lead role in Washington's backfield last season, with Chris Thompson handling the obvious passing downs. Regardless of what the Redskins do in the draft, Jones likely will have to compete for a roster spot. He's unlikely to fetch anything more than a sixth or seventh-round selection in a trade.
