Redskins Draft Picks 2012: OT Thomas Compton Picked By Washington In Sixth Round

The Washington Redskins have made South Dakota offensive tackle their seventh pick of the 2012 NFL Draft. This marks the third offensive lineman the Redskins have added through the draft. Previously they added guards Adam Gettis and Josh LeRibeus. They moved down the line with this addition.

The 6'5", 311 pound senior is knocked for the level of competition in the Missouri Valley Conference, but he brings NFL size and athleticism. He could potentially move to a variety of spots on the line and thus will provide some more competition on a line that struggled in 2011. He remains a bit stiff and has to improve his footwork, and there are some question marks about his lateral quickness. However, some effective coaching could help develop Compton into something resembling a solid NFL offensive lineman.

The Redskins have two picks left, both in the seventh round - No. 213 and No. 217.
