Understatement of the year: Redskins’ rookie safety Jordan Bernstine can jump much, much higher than me — and probably much higher than you, too.
The Iowa product was selected by the Redskins with their final pick (217th overall) in last month’s NFL Draft.
The photo above, courtesy of BlackHeartGoldPants.com, gives you a really good at just how high Bernstine can fly.
His vertical leap has been measured at 41 inches, and, as the Redskins’ Brian Tinsman reports, the 5-11, 205-pound Bernstine definitely has the look of an ideal NFL safety.
I’m looking forward to seeing what this athlete can do on the field here at Redskins Park.
Here’s a video of a Bob Sanders-esque hit Bernstine delivered last season at Iowa:
