Report: Linebacker Reggie Northrup Visiting Redskins


Florida State's leading tackler in each of the past two seasons, linebacker Reggie Northrup is reportedly visiting with the Redskins on Monday as the NFL Draft nears.

A second-team All-ACC selection by the media as a senior in 2015, Florida State linebacker Reggie Northrup is visiting the Washington Redskins on Monday, according to Greg Auman of The Tampa Bay Times.

Northrup played four seasons for the Seminoles starting as a freshman in 2012 when he appeared in 12 games, recording 10 tackles, including a season-high six tackles against Boston College.

As a sophomore in 2013, Northrup was once again a key backup, appearing in 14 games and finishing eighth on the defense in tackles with 46, 11 of which came against Syracuse.

Northrup would jump into the starting lineup in 2014 and did not disappoint, as he led Florida State in tackles with 122, the highest tackle total by a Seminoles player in 12 seasons.

He also earned All-ACC third-team honors.

In Florida State's Rose Bowl loss last January, though, Northrup suffered a torn ACL that forced him to miss a bulk of offseason workouts, but no time on the field for games.

In his opening game as a senior in 2016, Northup not only accrued game action, he recorded five tackles in a 59-16 victory over Texas State.

He would finish his senior season once again leading the defense in tackles with 94.

This past January, Northrup appeared in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.'s Chad Reuter wrote last season that Northrup is "one of the most explosive hitters between the tackles in college football despite average size for his position."

Northrup participated in Florida State's pro day last month in Tallahassee. His marketing and branding is being represented by Lil Wayne's Young Money Sports.

He was also a college teammate of current Redskins Chris Thompson and Dustin Hopkins.
