Redskins select OLB Ryan Anderson in 2nd round

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

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 was the easy and obvious choice here and I am pleased the Redskins did…
