Notes On Redskins Sixth-Round Pick Robert Davis


Check out notes on new Washington Redskins wide receiver Robert Davis, the No. 209 pick in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, courtesy of Redskins Public Relations.

• Davis is the 463rd selection made by the Redskins in the Common Draft era (since 1967) and the 56th sixth-round selection in that time frame. He is the 82nd sixth-round selection by the Redskins all-time since the institution of the draft in 1936.

With Davis' selection, the Redskins have now selected at least one wide receiver in each of the last four drafts (Ryan Grant in 2014, Jamison Crowder and Evan Spencer in 2015, Josh Doctson in 2016, Robert Davis in 2017). This marks the Redskins' longest such streak since a four-year span across the 2008-11 drafts.

• Davis is the first player from Georgia State selected by the Redskins all-time. It marks the first time the Redskins have selected a player from a school not represented in the team's previous draft history since making Alfred Morris the Redskins' first selection from Florida Atlantic in team history in the 2012 NFL Draft.

• Davis is only the second player in Georgia State history to be selected in the NFL Draft, joining offensive lineman John Ulrick (Indianapolis, 2014).

• Davis is the third player selected by the Redskins with the No. 209 overall selection all-time, joining B Roger Robinson (1946) and QB Joe Kapp (1959).
