NFL Draft 2018: Da’Ron Payne goes to Washington

The big man is going to DC

NCAA Football: CFP National Championship Game-Alabama vs Georgia Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

With the 13th overall pick, the Washington Redskins selected Da’Ron Payne. The second defensive tackle off the board and only two spots behind Alabama team mate Minkah Fitzpatrick, Payne is an athletic specimen at defensive tackle who can play as a two-gapping nose tackle or use his speed to be a playmaker as a 1- or 3-tech.

His main competition will be 10-year average veteran Ziggy Hood and will join former Alabama teammates Jonathan Allen and Ryan Anderson.

Roll Tide, Da’Ron, and may you cause much Payne to Cowboys Quarterbacks.
