The Washington Redskins selected Clemson defensive tackle Jarvis Jenkins with the ninth pick of the second round of the NFL draft.
Analysis: Another QB-needy team passing on Arkansas QB Ryan Mallet, the Redskins are looking for pieces for their 3-4 defense, and Jenkins is the kind of big-bodied monster who can play the nose tackle position that Albert Haynesworth refused to play and Maake Kemoeatu was never healthy enough to play in 2010. Washington picks again at 49 as a result of Thursday’s first-round trade with Jacksonville and might could nab its QB there. Right?
Alum: Former Redskins quarterback Doug Williams announced the pick.
