13. Daron Payne, DT, Alabama (Washington Redskins)
Even after using their top pick in the 2017 NFL Draft on fellow defensive lineman Jonathan Allen from the University of Alabama, the front office of the Washington Redskins opted to double-down at the position, opting to use their pick on defensive lineman Daron Payne.
Payne paired with his former teammate (Allen) to form a defensive line that was formidable for the first half of the 2018 season, in which he finished with 56 tackles, five sacks, a forced fumble and fumble recovery. At season’s end, he was named to the 2018 PFWA All-Rookie Team
