Redskins Draft Picks 2012: Washington Selects Iowa OG Adam Gettis At No. 141 Overall

The Washington Redskins entered the draft with question marks surrounding their offensive line, and they have taken steps to begin shoring up the unit through the first five rounds. A day after selecting SMU guard Josh LeRibeus in the third round, the Redskins used pick No. 141 in the fifth round to select Iowa guard Adam Gettis. The team could still use some tackles, but solidifying the interior of the line is a step in the right direction.

Gettis appears to be a guy who has a chance to be a starter, but might end up being a strong reserve interior lineman. He is a bit undersized and needs to work on getting a bit more physical. He has solid footwork who can seal off defenders, which are important skills to have coming out of college. He can always add the needed additional weight and work on his strength, but a strong core of fundamentals will be a big boost.
