Tim Settle is staying home.

In the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins selected Settle, a defensive lineman out of Virginia Tech.

The Manassas, Va., native joins the Redskins after spending the past two seasons at Virginia Tech. With the Hokies, Settle appeared in 27 games with 13 starts, recording 53 total tackles (28 solo) along with 19.5 tackles for loss, four sacks, two kicks blocked and one pass defensed.

During his final season at Virginia Tech, the 6-foot-3, 329 pounder started all 13 games to tally 36 tackles (12.5 for loss), and four sacks.

As a freshman in 2016, Settle was selected as an honorable mention Freshman All-American by College Insiders, as he registered 17 tackles along with two quarterback hurries and one blocked kick.

Settle played at Stonewall Jackson High School in Manassas before attending Virginia Tech.

Settle is also the second defensive lineman selected by the Redskins in this year's NFL Draft, joining Alabama's Da'Ron Payne who was selected No. 13-overall.
