Would have liked to see them trade for next year's draft if they didn't like the value with their current pick, but I guess late picks in the NFL still have a decent shot at being productive players - vs. the end of the second round in the NBA.

Maybe they will convert him to linebacker. Pretty small for DE but fast enough to play LB.

He’s the one late rounder I’m pretty high on. But if you watch his highlights it’s pretty clear he’s not an end, he’s a linebacker.

Micah Parsons thinks Washington got a steal with their 7th round pick

To some, that pick not seem like much of a big deal. However, according to fellow Penn State defender Micah Parsons -- who just went No. 12 overall to the Cowboys two days earlier -- Washington may have found a hidden gem in the late rounds once again.

Especially in a 43 defense. I guess his role would be as a situational blitzing LBer until he learns the nuances of the position. If he can play special teams, he'll make the team.

If you get 1 or 2 UDFA's make the team, you've done well, and I think he'll do that. I think he'll blend well with Gibson, because he's a completely different style runner. He's like Warrick Dunn used to be - a small RB who runs up the middle and is able to instantly see the little creases - runs like a power back with no wasted motion on quick breaking plays, while Gibson is more of an outside runner on slower developing plays. And Patterson can also catch the ball well -according to scouting reports. Along with McKissic, I think that's our RB by committee.

I think our special teams just got a potential upgrade with all these fast fierce playmakers. Players who are raw but athletic and motivated will be scrapping for jobs, seems to me this is an opportunity for guys like St Juste, Darrick Forrest, Toney, to show competitive fire. I wonder if that is part of the RR methodology. Get athletes, speed in particular, if they aren't ready they can still add savagery to your special teams squads while they develop.

And Toney's not just a guy who did well in workouts; he was a producer for 4 years at Penn State - BT first team all-rookie as a redshirt frosh, 2nd team all-BT as a soph and junior, 1st team all-BT as a senior. I expect he's going to play with a chip on his shoulder - and more importantly, he's a football player. He'll learn to play LBer in the NFL. Bleacher Report gave him a 2nd round grade.

With the drafting of Cosmi, T & Bates, TE and now this UDFA RB Patterson, I’d love to see a big goal line package like the Jumbo one from the Gibbs era. I’m tired of seeing this team struggle inside the 5 yard line. It’s why I wanted Trey Smith from Tennessee in the 6th round but I understand why they took the Cheeseman Long Snapper after Carolina took the Alabama LS 2 picks earlier. There’s a drop off in LS after these two.

I’ve seen him described as a wrecking ball short yardage RB that can break tackles and make sharp cuts. They also say he can pass protect. Let’s us leak out Bates, who I’m hopeful can be that Don Warren type of TE this team needs.

Looks that way, I remember Dexter Manley lined up wide on special teams flying down field on punts with little CBs trying to block him. Then Charles Mann doing the same a few years later. It’ll be fun to have a DE on ST in the gunner role again. I mean why have a wide receiver do it when we have a DE that can run like Toney & Bradley-King.
