FAYETTEVILLE — Safety Kam Curl finished his rookie season with 37 stops.
Curl thus was able to do something no other rookie safety had accomplished in the Pro Football Focus era.
Curl was drafted in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft by Washington with the No. 216 pick. He was drafted after playing three seasons at the University of Arkansas.
Curl took over the starting strong safety after Landon Collins suffered a season-ending injury in Week 8. In Week 9 against the New York Giants, Curl had 11 tackles and recorded his first sack. Curl helped lead his team to the playoffs.
Curl played high school football at Muskogee (Okla.).
