Brey Cook is bringing his "nasty" style of play with him to the Washington Redskins.

Signed as part of the team's college free agent class, Cook helped Arkansas' offense experience several successes over the course of his career. Most notably was last season's feat of helping two different running backs rush for more than 1,000 yards.

Head coach Bret Bielema said Cook – who was one of the team captains – is a "great competitor" who showcased his talents at both guard and tackle for the Razorbacks.

And while some offenses have restricted their usage of the running game over the years, electing to go towards a more pass-heavy attack instead, Cook played in a balanced offense.

That'll benefit him as he transitions to the NFL.

"One of the things Brey would tell you probably during his time here was that he learned to put a hat-on-hat, use his a**, use his feet to be able to move people around and he kind of plays nasty," Bielema told ESPN980. "He's a mean player, nothing dirty or anything like that, he just lets you know that 'Hey, we're here to play, it's going to be a four-quarter game and you're going to feel it tomorrow and the next day, and maybe a couple days later as well.' I really like his demeanor and I think you guys will as well."
