Redskins Sign Draft Picks Rambo, Jenkins


The Washington Redskins announced today that they have signed 2013 fifth-round draft pick linebacker Brandon Jenkins (162nd overall) and sixth-round pick safety Bacarri (buh-CAR-ee) Rambo (191st overall).


In addition, the team announced that it waived wide receiver Jason Thompson.

Jenkins (6-5, 251) played in 40 games with 28 starts at Florida State from 2009-12.

In his time as a Seminole, he recorded 119 tackles (81 solo) and exited the program ranking ninth in school history for career sacks (22.5).

Jenkins, 23, was a preseason All-ACC selection before missing the majority of the 2012 season with an injury.

His 13.5 sacks as a sophomore in 2010 were the third-most in school history and helped the Seminoles tie for most sacks in the country that season (48).

Rambo (6-0, 215) played in 47 games with 36 starts at Georgia from 2009-12.


He exited the program tied for school records in career interceptions (16) and career interceptions returned for touchdowns (three), ranking in the Top 10 all-time in SEC history in both categories.

Rambo, 22, had 73 tackles (47 solo) as a senior last season.

He had three interceptions, one year removed from a junior season in which his eight interceptions were second-most in the Football Bowl Subdivision behind only NC State's David Amerson, a fellow 2013 draft selection of the Redskins.

Lewis (6-2, 207) spent training camp with the Redskins prior to the 2012 season before being released on Aug. 27, 2012. Lewis, 24, played collegiately at East Carolina, where exited the program ranking third in school history in career receptions (149) and fifth in receiving yards (1,716).

Thompson originally signed with the Redskins as a college free agent on May 1, 2013.
