Third-round pick Fabian Moreau signs with Redskins, all draftees now under contract

Third-round pick Fabian Moreau signs with Redskins, all draftees now under contract

By: Caroline Brandt, @carolinewbrandt 

The Redskins have a lot to feel good about going into Memorial Day weekend. Fabian Moreau, a cornerback out of UCLA and the Redskins' 81st pick, has officially signed with the team.

The 6-foot, 200-pound CB tore his pectoral muscle during the bench press at his pro day, but he recently told Redskins Insider JP Finlay that his rehab is going well. There is hope Moreau could return to the field in August or September.

All 10 of Washington's draft picks this season are now under contract with Moreau's signing.

The Redskins' 2017 draft class includes:

  1. Jonathan Allen, DT, Alabama (No. 17 Overall, Rd. 1)
  2. Ryan Anderson, OLB, Alabama (No. 49 Overall, Rd. 2)
  3. Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA (No. 81 Overall, Rd. 3)
  4. Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma (No. 114 Overall, Rd. 4)
  5. Montae Nicholson, S, Michigan State (No. 123 Overall, Rd. 4)
  6. Jeremy Sprinkle, TE, Arkansas (No. 154, Rd. 5)
  7. Chase Rouiller, C, Wyoming (No. 199, Rd. 6)
  8. Robert Davis, WR, Georgia State (No. 209, Rd. 6)
  9. Josh Harvey-Clemons, S/LB, Louisville (No. 230, Rd. 7)
  10. Joshua Holsey, CB, Auburn (No. 235, Rd. 7)
