Dictator’s Decree: “Teams are basically throwing darts at a wall in Rounds 6-7. After one season is looks like the trade-up Redskins may have hit at least somewhere on the dartboard with LB Shaun-Dion Hamilton at No. 197. He played in all 16 games with four starts and 27 tackles. Not bad for a late-round flier.” – March 2019


Players drafted this late – in the 200s basically – rarely go on to become impact players in the NFL. Few of them even make 53-man rosters during their careers, so evaluating traded between 6th and 7th round picks is usually a waste of time. But in this case the trade-up Redskins deserve some recognition. Both players they drafted – LB Shaun Dion-Hamilton and WR Trey Quin not only made the roster but appeared in some games. Hamilton even had 1.5 sacks and forced a fumble, making him a “high impact” player when compared to other players drafted near No. 200. Well done, Washington.

Trade #18.34 – Assets Exchanged
Redskins receive: No. 197 (6th Rd.), No. 256 (7th Rd.)
Rams receive: No. 205 (6th Rd.), No. 231 (7th Rd.)

2018 Year-End Summary
Picks in rounds 6-7 are basically lottery tickets, so congratulations to the Redskins for getting some value out of these two rookies.
