Draft day 3 is finally here and Washington has made their pick, taking Louisiana safety Percy Butler with the 113th overall pick. Washington is always in need of safeties, but passed on multiple options over the first 3 rounds. This is the 2nd defensive player Washington has selected out of their 4 picks so far.

Butler is a safety, but is also a special teams standout who ran a 4.36 at the NFL Scouting Combine. He will likely be competing for playing time with Bobby McCain, but should be heavily used on special teams. He looks like the replacement for Deshazor Everett, but the team likely hopes he can eventually start at safety.

Washington’s draft picks:

Round 1(#16): Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State

Round 2(#47): Phidarian Mathis, DL, Alabama

Round 3(#98): Brian Robinson Jr., RB, Alabama

Round 4(#113): Percy Butler, S, Louisiana

Round 4(#120):

Round 6(#189):
