Redskins Draft LeRibeus In Third Round

Posted Apr 27, 2012

After drafting Robert Griffin III with their first round pick on Thursday, the Redskins went about trying to protect him in the third round. The team selected hard-nosed SMU guard Josh LeRibeus with the 71st overall pick.


After drafting Robert Griffin III with their top pick on Thursday, the Redskins went about trying to protect him in the third round.

The team selected Southern Methodist University guard Josh LeRibeus with the 71st overall pick in the NFL Draft.

LeRibeus, 6-2 and 311 pounds, is regarded as a tough, hard-nosed offensive lineman with good mobility to get out front in the zone blocking scheme.

According to draft prospect analysis on NFL.com, LeRibeus is a “very good scheme and overall run blocker in SMU's offense. He is quick off the ball with his first step and almost always gets his hands on blocks early. He is an active player who will fight to sustain his blocks downfield.

“He shows good effort and motor to stay with the play and is just as effective when working in space as a puller. Some small issues with his footwork and athletic ability show up when he tries to work to the second level, but overall he almost always finds a way to block his man.”

LeRibeus competed in 36 games, making 28 starts at left guard during his SMU career. During his sophomore and senior years, he started every game for an offense that eclipsed the 5,000-yard mark and scored 350-plus points in both seasons. He sat out his junior season due to academic ineligibility.

LeRibeus joins former SMU teammate Aldrick Robinson with the Redskins. Robinson was chosen by Washington in the 2011 Draft.

Leribeus hails from Richardson, Texas, a suburb of Dallas.

The Redskins originally owned the 69th overall pick in the third round, but they moved down two spots in a trade with the Buffalo Bills and picked up an additional seventh-round selection.
