2013 NFL Draft: Washington Redskins Select Georgia Safety Baccari Rambo in Sixth Round

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

In the sixth round, the Washington Redksins selected Georgia safety Bacarri Rambo.

It took a while, but playmaking Georgia safety Bacarri Rambo finally came off the board in the sixth round at 191 overall.

Rambo is a natural centerfielder who intercepted 11 passes in his final two years at Georgia, including eight in his junior season. The latter mark was the second-highest total in the NCAA, second only to Redskins second-round pick David Amerson. Rambo is opportunistic in pass coverage, and though he isn't an aggressive in-the-box type when it comes to defending the run or short passes, he's shown he isn't afraid to sacrifice his body to break up a pass.

Many viewed Rambo as a second or third round talent, but he fell all the way to the sixth round likely due to off-the-field issues in college. Rambo served a four-game suspension in his senior season due to a failed drug test, and a one game suspension in 2011 due to a team rules violation. Although, when such a late round pick is used on a player with this background, it's not as risky.

With Rambo now aboard, the Redskins are continuing the theme of getting high-ceiling guys in the mid-to-later rounds, as was the case with guys like Phillip Thomas and Brandon Jenkins. Rambo will enter what's now looking like a crowded group of safeties at the start of the season, but don't be surprised if he makes his way into a few sub packages once the season begins.
