Safety Kyshoen Jarrett was very familiar with the Redskins going to Virginia Tech, but probably nothing could have prepared him for signing a contract with them.

That's what happened on Monday, when he became one of the ten Redskins draft picks to officially sign with the team.

Jarrett stands at just 5-foot-10 but plays much bigger.

His senior season was the best statistically, as he recorded a team-high 98 tackles along with five passes defensed and three interceptions, two coming against Ohio State, which went on to win the National Championship.

"I feel like I have many strengths," Jarrett told reporters after being drafted. "I can play in the box. I can play the post. I have range as a free safety, play in the box as a strong safety. I can be a nickelback, a cornerback. I can return punts. I could do any type of special teams. I feel like I'm a very versatile player coming out of Virginia Tech and I'm happy that the Washington Redskins are allowing me to display those talents within their system."
