Even when you make think you are set somewhere, it never hurts to add a little extra something just in case.
That's exactly what the Redskins did with their final pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, taking Oklahoma State DE Jordan Brailford with the No. 253 pick to further beef up their pass rushing squad.
Brailford is coming off a strong 2018 campaign in which he doubled his sack total from 2017, picking up 10.0 in 13 games. At 6-foot-3 and 252 pounds and possessing a 4.65 40-yard dash time, Brailford's pass rushing skills fit the overall theme of the Redskins Day 3 draft: obtain speed and athleticism.
His addition further improves an already loaded unit on the Redskins defense. We can go name by name and explain how well-off Washington is up front, but this tweet does a pretty good job of summing it up.

That is..................... awesome
Used in certain situations on defense and as a force on the special teams, Brailford is another fast, explosive body that the Redskins can rely on both for immediate impact and depth along the line.
