Jonathan Allen headlines slew of draft pick signings in Washington

AP

Defensive lineman Jonathan Allen lingered longer than expected in the draft before finally coming off the board with the 17th overall pick.

He’s signed his first NFL contract before many of the players drafted in front of him. The Redskins announced on Thursday that Allen has signed his deal.

Eight other players that were drafted in April are also now under contract. Second-round linebacker Ryan Anderson, who played with Allen at Alabama, has agreed to a four-year deal along with fourth-round running back Samaje Perine, fourth-round safety Montae Nicholson, fifth-round tight end Jeremy Sprinkle, sixth-round guard Chase Roullier, sixth-round wide receiver Robert Davis, seventh-round safety Josh Harvey Clemons and seventh-round cornerback Joshua Holsey.

Third-round cornerback Fabian Moreau is the only draft pick left unsigned, but it probably won’t be long before the entire group is under contract in Washington.

    Thanks Josh for the positive report. It’s good to hear this.

    Yeah I really like the Jonathan Allen pick. He has that ‘next level’ power where he can just move people around as if he weighed twice as much. Reminds me of Suh.

    Worthless acquisition of Alabama system products who are going to fail – but it is great to see rookies not getting to extort for outrageous salaries before they even play a pre-season game.

    Alabama players ARE failures and Washington wasted many picks on those players and injured ones.

    Not a Redskins fan in the slightest, but they had an A+ draft.

    …..uh oh, I said “Redskins”, all five faux-offended people run to your safe-spaces.

    Bet after all that work, Bruce probably needs a Miller Lite.

    There is a mountain of evidence to the contrary. But sure, just be a troll.
