The Redskins made their eighth and final draft pick and took kicker Zach Hocker of Arkansas.

Hocker was the second team All-SEC kicker as he converted on 13 of 15 field goal tries including three of four from 50 yards or more. He was solid on kickoffs with 34 of 50 going for touchbacks.

Hocker will compete with Kai Forbath, the team's kicker for the last two seasons, and Jake Rogers. There is also the possibility that he could be kept as a kickoff specialist. Kickoffs are not a strong suit for Forbath, who is a very accurate field goal kicker.
