In the sixth-round, the Redskins drafted its first quarterback since Kirk Cousins in 2012 when they took Sudfeld.


During his four seasons at Indiana, Sudfeld collected 7,879 yards and 66 touchdowns to just 20 interceptions.

In the seventh-round, the Redskins selected Daniels out of Boston College and Marshall out of Georgia.

Daniels earned first-team All-ACC honors while Marshall posted an impressive 4.31-second 40-yard dash time at the 2016 NFL Combine.

Carrington, meanwhile, joins the Redskins on the heels of three productive seasons with the Sun Devils, totaling 136 career tackles (eight for loss) along with four sacks, three interceptions and two touchdowns in 40 career appearances.

Northrup played four seasons for the Seminoles starting as a freshman in 2012 when he appeared in 12 games, recording 10 tackles, including a season-high six tackles against Boston College.

As a sophomore in 2013, Northrup was once again a key backup, appearing in 14 games and finishing eighth on the defense in tackles with 46, 11 of which came against Syracuse.

Northrup would jump into the starting lineup in 2014 and did not disappoint, as he led Florida State in tackles with 122, the highest tackle total by a Seminoles player in 12 seasons.

He also earned All-ACC third-team honors.
