SUNDAY’S SELECTIONS — The Redskins picks today in the NFL Draft: —

Third round, No. 96 — Chad Rinehart

— School: Northern Iowa

— Position: Tackle/guard

— Size: 6-5, 311

— The skinny: A four-year starter at left tackle for the Panthers, Rinehart registered the best career blocking grade (88.5 percent) of any Division I lineman during the past 15 years. Rinehart gives assistant coach Joe Bugel a young lineman to develop.

Fourth round, No. 124 –- Justin Tryon

School: Arizona State

Position: Cornerback

Size: 5-9, 190

The skinny: After drafting for size at the skill positions on Saturday, the Redskins went small here. Tryon attended three colleges from 2003 to 2006. He made the All-Pac 10 second-team in 2007 because of his blazing 4.39 speed. Can also return kicks.

Sixth round, No. 186 –- Durant Brooks

School: Georgia Tech

Position: Punter

Size: 6-0, 204

The skinny: Brooks won the Ray Guy Award as the nation’s top punter in 2007 after being a finalist in 2006. Broke a 36-year-old NCAA record with 57 punts of at least 50 yards in his two years at Georgia Tech. Has been taught by family friend Guy, the legendary former Oakland punter.

Sixth round, No. 180 –- Kareem Moore

School: Nicholls (La.) State

Position: Safety

Size: 5-11, 213

The skinny: The Redskins used a third-round pick in 1995 on a vertically challenged DB from Nicholls State. Darryl Pounds lasted five years, mostly on special teams. Moore, who attended Mississippi, Itawamba CC and McNeese State before Nicholls State, is a hitter who could win a job behind starters LaRon Landry and Reed Doughty.
