Notes on Redskins Fourth-Round Pick Montae Nicholson


Check out notes on new Washington Redskins safety Montae Nicholson, the No. 123 pick in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, courtesy of Redskins Public Relations.

• Nicholson is the 460th selection made by the Redskins in the Common Draft era (since 1967) and the 33rd fourth-round selection in that time frame. He is the 48th fourth-round selection by the Redskins all-time since the institution of the draft in 1936.

With Nicholson's selection, the Redskins have now selected a defensive player in each of the first four rounds of the draft for the first time in the Common Draft era.

• Nicholson is the first player from Michigan State selected by the Redskins since the team chose quarterback Kirk Cousins – also in the fourth round – in the 2012 NFL Draft.

• Nicholson is the 17th player from Michigan State selected by the Redskins all-time, joining E Stan McRae (1941), E Frank Brogger (1945), B Al Dorow (1952), E Orlando Mazza (1952), E Paul Dekker (1953), B Ed Timmerman (1953), B Billy Wells (1954), B Gary Lowe (1956), B Jerry Planutis (1956), G Buck Nystrom (1956), FB Ron Hatcher (1962), B Carl Charon (1962), B Lonnie Sanders (1963), DT Bobby Wilson (1991), WR Devin Thomas (2008) and QB Kirk Cousins (2012).

• Nicholson is the third player selected by the Redskins with the No. 123 selection all-time, joining QB Eddie LeBaron (1950) and B Alex Webster (1953).
