The Redskins on Saturday selected Arie Kouandjio, an offensive lineman out of Alabama, with the No. 112-overall pick.

Kouandjio got his first action for a superb Alabama program in 2012, recording action in 11 of 14 games.

During his junior season, the 6-foot-5, 310 pounder started all 13 games at left guard and allowed just two sacks the whole season. He also helped pave the way for one of the top rushing attacks in the nation, as the Crimson Tide rushed for more than 200 yards per game. 

He also started at guard last season for Alabama, as the school was paced by their offense en route to a College Football Playoff semifinal appearance. 

After closing out his college career, Kouandjio has been training with his brother -- Bills offensive lineman Cyrus Kouandjio -- and Titans guard Chance Warmack, both of whom are former teammates. 

I've been getting ready," Kouandjio told "I've been getting stronger, focusing a lot on getting right and being ready to play at a high level and take what I want coming into this fall. So at least some of the focus has been on 40s and stuff like that. However, I'm more looking at, I'm going through here and I'm focused on this, and also a lot of my focus is working to the best of my ability [for the] fall." Profile:


On-target with hand strikes and works to steer his man out of the play in run game. Good in short-pull game and will fire himself into linebackers with force. Understands how to work in tandem and finds a way to get guys blocked. Has long arms and uses his length for redirect.
