The pick marks two years in a row of defensive players for Washington, which took defensive lineman Jonathan Allen last year.
The Washington Redskins took the the Crimson Tide defensive lineman with the 13th overall pick in the National Football League draft Thursday night, one year after their first two draft picks were former Alabama defenders Jonathan Allen and Ryan Anderson. The Birmingham, Ala., native finished 2017 with 53 tackles, 1 tackle for a loss, 1 sack, 3 pass breakups, a team-high 8 quarterback hurries, 1 fumble recovery and 1 interception. Payne earned second-team All-America accolades from the American Football Coaches Association and was selected as a first-team All-SEC member by The Associated Press.
Allen, like Payne, played for Alabama, which now has four players on the Redskins roster (Allen, Payne, Ryan Anderson and Arie Kouandjio).
