LSU offensive tackle Saahdiq Charles (77) points to the end zone while walking with LSU offensive guard Garrett Brumfield (78) and LSU quarterback Joe Burrow (9) after a Tigers' first down is confirmed in the Aggies' 74-72 win over the Tigers in the 7th overtime, Saturday, November 24, 2018, at Texas A&M's Kyle Field in College Station, Texas.

Saahdiq Charles had to wait until Day 3 of the 2020 NFL draft to hear his name, but that wait ended almost immediately Saturday morning.

The former LSU offensive tackle was picked by the Washington Redskins with the second pick of the fourth round, No. 108 overall.

The Redskins picked Charles, who opted to forgo his final season at LSU, just moments after news broke that the Redskins would be trading left tackle Trent Williams to the San Francisco 49ers.

Charles joins former teammate Derrius Guice in Washington, who was picked by No. 59 overall by the Redskins in the 2018 draft.
