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).


It's been already been solid 2018 for Da'Ron Payne. Payne's selection marked the first time in the Nick Saban era that Alabama had first-round defensive linemen drafted in consecutive seasons.

Allen, of course, was selected with the No. 17-overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft while Hood first entered the NFL as the No. 32-overall selection in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
