The Redskins selected Oklahoma State defensive end Jordan Brailford with the 253rd overall pick, the second to last pick, in the seventh round in the 2019 NFL Draft on Saturday in Nashville, Tenn.
Brailford recorded 54 tackles, including 17 solo, pulled down nine quarterback sacks and forced two fumbles as a junior this past season for the Cowboys. He had 57 tackles (34 solo), five sacks and one forced fumble during his sophomore campaign.
Brailford is a bit undersize (6-foot-3, 255 pounds), but makes up for it with his speed, which was showcased at the NFL Scouting Combine in March in Indianapolis where he clocked in at 4.65 seconds in the 40-yard dash. That speed was on display during the East-West Shrine game with his pass-rushing ability off the edge.
Running back Justice Hill, Brailford’s former OSU and high school teammate at Booker T. Washington in Tulsa, was selected 113rd overall by the Ravens in the fourth round. Both players decided to forego their senior seasons at OSU and declare for the draft.
