The Redskins signed five of their nine draft picks a while back and now they’re starting to whittle down the list of remaining players.
On Thursday, the team announced that they have agreed to a four-year contract with linebacker Keenan Robinson. Robinson was picked in the fourth round with the 119th overall selection by the Redskins.
Robinson played weakside linebacker in a 4-3 at Texas, but will shift to an inside spot in the Redskins defense. He doesn’t figure to get too many snaps in the base defense this season. London Fletcher and Perry Riley are set as the starters and the recently signed Jonathan Goff should be the primary reserve if he’s recovered from the torn ACL that wiped out his 2011 season. Robinson did a good job in pass coverage at Texas, so he might be able to find some playing time if that translates to this level.
