Check out notes on new Washington Redskins defensive lineman Tim Settle, the No. 163 pick in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, courtesy of Redskins Public Relations.
- Settle is the 471st selection made by the Redskins in the Common Draft era (since 1967) and the 49th fifth-round selection in that time frame. He is the 74th fifth-round selection by the Redskins all-time since the institution of the draft in 1936.
- Settle is the second defensive lineman selected by the Redskins in the fifth round in the past three drafts. The team selected DL Matt Ioannidis with the No. 152 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
- With the selection of Settle and the first-round selection of DL Da'Ron Payne, the Redskins have now selected two defensive linemen in the same draft for the first time since selecting Anthony Montgomery and Kedric Golston in the 2006 NFL Draft.
- Settle played his prep career at Stonewall Jackson H.S. in Manassas, Va., approximately 25 miles from team headquarters in Ashburn, Va. Including the selection of Stone Bridge H.S.'s Jonathan Allen last year, the Redskins have now selected players from the Northern Virginia metro area in back-to-back drafts.
- Settle is the seventh Virginia Tech product selected by the Redskins all-time, joining C Buzz Nutter (1953), E Tom Petty (1955), TE Ken Barefoot (1968), T Derek Smith (1999), S Kyshoen Jarrett (2015) and CB Kendall Fuller (2016).
- Settle becomes the third Virginia Tech product selected by the Redskins in the last four drafts.
- Settle becomes the fourth player selected by the Redskins all-time with the No. 163 overall pick, joining T Doug Conaway (1952), TE Danzell Lee (1985) and DE Dexter Nottage (1994).
