The Washington Redskins didn’t get involved in any trades in the first round of the NFL Draft, and instead used their pick to strengthen the defense by selecting the player many scouts touted as one of the best pass rushers of the draft class; Alabama’s Jonathan Allen. Welcome home!
A full analysis will follow shortly on Allen, but for now here’s how the Redskins players and fans reacted to the pick via Twitter:

The draft fell just right for Washington, and it gets to bring Jonathan Allen home. If health concerns are overblown, they nailed it.

Redskins get DE Jonathan Allen with the 17th pick. Fell right into their lap. Big break, highest rated Defender. #redskins
