As a Maryland fan, I couldn’t have been happier with the Washington Redskins third round selection on Sunday. Kevin Barnes is a hard-hitting cornerback with decent hands and above average coverage skills.
If you aren’t a Maryland fan, you may or may not have heard of this kid, so for reference, feel free to ask Cal’s Jahvid Best.
For those of those unfamiliar with this hit, here’s a youtube video that will show you what I mean: (warning: if you have a weak stomach, you may want to look away for the last 10 seconds or so)
That was the hit of the season. Man.
Our friends at redlasso also posted a clip from Fox 5 here in DC about Barnes.
The rest of the second day of the draft was fairly quiet for the ‘Skins. They drafted:
- Fifth Round, #158: Cody Glenn, LB, Nebraska
- Fifth Round, #186: Robert Henson, LB, TCU
- Sixth Round, #221: Eddie Williams, TE/FB, Idaho
- Seventh Round, #243: Marko Mitchell, WR, Nevada
