2011 NFL Draft Results: Jarvis Jenkins Selected By Washington Redskins

The Washington Redskins have selected Clemson defensive end Jarvis Jenkins with the 41st pick of the 2011 NFL Draft.

The Redskins looked like they were trying to trade down yet again in the second round, but instead stayed put at that spot and addressed yet another need along the defensive front seven.

Jim Haslett is having a heck of a firt two days of the draft. Not only did the team address a glaring need at outside linebacker with it's first pick of Ryan Kerrigan, but the team again addressed the front seven by adding the Clemson product. 

Jenkins has good size and could project to being a 3-4 nose tackle. If so, the team may have finally found it's answer at a position they have been sorely lacking since Albert Haynesworth came to town., 

That being said, the Redskins aren't done yet. They still have another pick in this round, the 49th pick in the draft, and could again go in a number of different directions. With Ryan Mallet still on the board, that could be a possibility, as are the rest of the top skill position players available.
