Redskins Select Texas Linebacker Keenan Robinson In Fourth Round

By ZAC BOYER | | @ZacBoyer

Keenan Robinson, an outside linebacker from Texas, was selected by the Washington Redskins with the 119th pick of the NFL Draft on Saturday.

The 6-foot-3, 242-pound Robinson started all 39 games over the past three years for the Longhorns and finished with 106 rackles, including 10 for a loss and a sack.

The Redskins originally had the 109th selection by virtue of their 2010 trade with Oakland for quarterback Jason Campbell, but they moved back 10 spots after trading the pick to Pittsburgh. The Steelers then added a sixth-round pick, the No. 193 choice, to make the deal.

Earlier in the day, Washington took Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins with their first fourth-round pick. They also chose Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III with the No. 2 pick Thursday and SMU left guard Josh LeRibeus in the third round on Friday.

At the time of Robinson’s selection, the Redskins have one fifth-round, two sixth-round and two seventh-round picks remaining.
