The Washington Redskins have all eight of their 2018 draft picks under contract after third-round offensive tackle Geron Christian agreed to a four-year deal, the team announced Thursday.

The other seven picks, including first-round defensive lineman Da’Ron Payne, all signed over a month ago.

Christian, 21, served as protection for former Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson at Louisville. The 6-foot-5, 298-pounder made 39 starts for the Cardinals and earned an all-ACC honorable mention in 2015 and 2017.

Selected with the 74th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, Christian is expected to provide depth at the position in back of six-time Pro Bowl selection Trent Williams, Morgan Moses and Ty Nsekhe.
