The Redskins just drafted Nebraska linebacker Cody Glenn in the fifth round.

After switching from running back last spring, the 6-foot, 235-pound Glenn made the Big 12 Academic Honor Roll but was also suspended for the final four games of his senior year and faces a civil suit for alleged non-payment of rent. Leg and foot injuries limited Glenn to five games as a junior and cost him three games as a sophomore.


Apparently, Glenn will compete with H.B. Blades, Robert Thomas and Alfred Fincher for the strongside starting spot occupied by Marcus Washington the past five years.
