Redskins Field A Kicker In Round 7

For the first time in 15 years a kicker was drafted by the Washington Redskins.

The team used its eighth pick of the 2014 NFL Draft on Arkansas kicker Zach Hocker.

In 38 games with the Razorbacks, Hocker connected on 61 field goal attempts and 171 extra-point tries. Like his seventh-round partner, Ted Bolser, Hocker is a record setter. He holds the Razorback record for most points by a kicker.
