Washington shored up its defensive line by selecting Alabama defensive tackle Da’Ron Payne with the first pick of the NFL Draft. Payne, a junior is a mammoth athlete in the middle. At 6’3, 311 pounds, he ran a quick 4.95 40 yard dash. Payne stepped up when now-former Alabama Crimson Tide teammate Jonathan Allen was drafted by Washington last year with 3 tackles, one sack, one interception, three pass break-ups.

The Second team All-SEC tackle should contribute to the burgundy and gold day one.

Tune into the NFL Draft this weekend to see who will be next to join Washington Football team.
