Redskins Draft: Depth Picks In Final Rounds

The Redskins wrapped up their 2017 Draft with several picks over the final two rounds including some needed offensive line depth and another big receiver.

And with their sixth and seventh round selections in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins select... Read on for details about their final picks and details on the Redskins' draft class.

Pick: 6th round, 199th overall

Who: Chase Roullier

College: Wyoming

Position: Center

Height/weight:  6'4" 312 pounds

Trade: Redskins sent picks 201 and 220 to the Vikings for 199 and 220.

Profile (From NFL.com): "Lack of length will hurt his cause for some teams, but his ability to handle both guard and center duties should add to his overall draft standing. Roullier is a power-based run-blocker who plays with good leg drive and leverage to open running lanes. He could struggle to handle athletic interior linemen, but should still appeal to teams looking for a scheme flexible, power player in the later rounds.

Why him: Kory Lichtensteiger and John Sullivan left in free agency, leaving the backup slot behind starting center Spencer Long open.

Pick: 6th round, 209th overall

WhoRobert Davis

College: Georgia State

Position: Wide receiver

Height/weight: 6-foot-3, 219 pounds

Profile (From NFL.com): "On the surface, Davis is a big receiver who lacks deep speed and has a hard time creating clean passing windows for quarterbacks. However, he's a decent athlete who could benefit greatly from extended route work and learning the nuances of the position. Davis is a project with some moldable traits who may have enough talent to find his way into the league once his skills and fundamentals are honed. Davis could be a practice squad stash with the ability to grow into an NFL backup."

Why him: There's some pedigree here; his cousins is Panthers LB Thomas Davis. There's also that size, which is something the Redskins targeted this offseason. Davis also prides himself on blocking. He'll battle Ryan Grant, Maurice Harris, Kendal Thompson, Reggie Diggs and Matt Hazel for a roster spot.

Pick: 7th round, 230th overall

WhoJosh Harvey-Clemons

College: Louisville

Position: Safety

Height/weight: 6-foot-4, 217 pounds

Profile (From NFL.com): "Former five-star recruit with an alpha mentality who roams the field with swagger and undeniable intent as a tackler. Has elite size, length and athletic traits, and is a rangy tackler with the ability to cover and blitz. He could be considered by teams as a box safety or hybrid linebacker."

Why him: At this point in the draft teams are selecting best player regardless of position. Harvey-Clemons started his college career at Georgia, but transferred in part because of multiple failed drug tests. The upside could be immense seeing as the NFL.com profile lists his as Kam Chancellor.

Pick: 7th round, 235th overall

Who: Joshua Holsey

College: Auburn

Position: Defensive back

Height/weight: 5-foot-11 198 pounds

Why him: Played cornerback and safety with the Tigers. Tore his ACK last season.
