With the 51st pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Washington Football Team added more depth to its offensive line by taking Texas offensive tackle Samuel Cosmi.
Cosmi (6-foot-6, 314 pounds) bulked up by 50 pounds after redshirting his freshman season and emerged as one of the best offensive linemen in the Big 12. He played in 35 games with 34 starts and is a two-time All-Big 12 selection (second-team in 2019 and first team in 2020). Cosmi was also an honorable mention for Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year in both seasons.
Cosmi is known for having the ability to work well in space against linebackers and defensive backs. His athleticism was put to good use by the Longhorns in several ways, including running in a touchdown against West Virginia on a trick play.
