The Washington Redskins used their 10th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft on Austin Reiter, a center out of South Florida. Reiter completes this year's draft class for the Redskins. 

Austin Reiter brings experience with him to the Redskins. 

The 6-foot-3, 296 pounder started 36 straight games for the Bulls and was a Rimington Award candidate during the 2013 and 2014 seasons. That award is given annually to the top center in the nation. 

During the 2013 season, Reiter was on the field for 735 plays according to USFBulls.com while also helping running back Marcus Shaw go for more than 140 yards on two different occasions.

Last season, Reiter was the man under center for Marlon Mack's fantastic freshman season, as he became just the fourth player in school history to rush for at least 1,000 yards, logging 1,041 yards and nine touchdowns on 202 carries.   

The school reported in late March that Reiter recorded 32 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press while also leaping 32 inches in the vertical leap. 

Reiter was hopeful that he'd be a late-round pick in this year's draft, and that came true with the No. 222 selection. 

"I definitely would like to see a late round draft pick for sure," Reiter said at the South Florida's pro day. "Of course."
