Third round, No. 96

Chad Rinehart

School: Northern Iowa

Position: Tackle/guard

Size: 6-5, 311

Skinny: A four-year starter at left tackle, 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

J.T. Tryon

School: Arizona State

Position: Cornerback

Size: 5-9, 190

Skinny: After drafting for size at the skill positions Saturday, the Redskins went small here. He made the All-Pac 10 second-team in 2007 because of his blazing 4.39 speed. Can also return kicks.

Sixth round, No. 168

Durant Brooks

School: Georgia Tech

Position: Punter

Size: 6-0, 204

Skinny: Brooks won the Ray Guy Award as the nation’s top punter in 2007 after being a finalist in 2006. Has a great chance to unseat incumbent punter Derrick Frost.

Sixth round, No. 180

Kareem Moore

School: Nicholls (La.) State

Position: Safety

Size: 5-11, 213

Skinny: Moore, who attended Mississippi, Itawamba Community College and McNeese State before Nicholls State, is a hitter who could win a job behind starters LaRon Landry and Reed Doughty.

Sixth round, No. 186

Colt Brennan

School: Hawaii

Position: Quarterback

Size: 6-3, 201

Skinny: Brennan set 31 NCAA records, including 388 passing yards a game and a .712 completion percentage. He did have hip surgery three weeks ago, which will keep him out two months.

Seventh round, No. 242

Rob Jackson

School: Kansas State

Position: Defensive end

Size: 6-4, 259

Skinny: One draft guide called Jackson not a great athlete who “waddles when he runs.” At least the Redskins finally took a player for the front seven of the defense, which has four starters in their 30s. He will have a tough time making the team.

Seventh round, No. 249

Chris Horton

School: UCLA

Position: Safety

Size: 6-1, 216

Skinny: After seeing little action his first two years, Horton led UCLA in tackles the past two seasons. He and Moore will compete with veteran Vernon Fox for the backup safety jobs.
