The Washington Redskins selected defensive tackle Kedric Golston from the University of Georgia with the 196th pick overall (sixth round) of the 2006 NFL Draft.
Golston is regarded as a player with great size and ability. It is hoped he will provide depth to an already productive Redskins defensive line.
Golston, 6-4 and 292 pounds, played in 44 games with 30 starts during his four years at Georgia and compiled 95 tackles (43 solo), 3.5 sacks, three fumble recoveries and 54 quarterback pressures.
In 2005, Golston played in 10 games with nine starts despite being hampered by an elbow injury. He recorded 21 tackles (13 solo), 1.5 sacks and 28 quarterback pressures, second-best on the team.
In 2004, Golston started 12 games and recorded 23 tackles (12 solo), 2.5 sacks and 16 quarterback pressures. During his sophomore campaign in 2003, he played in only eight games with six starts after sustaining a shoulder injury. He was able to record 17 tackles (eight solo), two fumble recoveries and six quarterback pressures.
In 2002, Golston played in all 14 games with three starts and was a member of the Georgia's first Southeastern Conference championship team in 20 years. He finished the 2002 season with a career-best 34 tackles (10 solo), a half-sack, one fumble recovery and four quarterback pressures.
