With the their selection in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, the 49th pick overall, the Washington Redskins took OLB Ryan Anderson of the University of Alabama.

Redskins select DE Jonathan Allen with 1st pick

Redskins select DE Jonathan Allen with 1st pick

The Washington Redskins selected DE Jonathan Allen from the University of Alabama with the 17th pick in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. My view is that this is a steal. Allen would have been a first round pick after his junior season, but he went back for his senior year and was a dominant player all season.
