For the second year in a row, the Redskins have selected a Southern Methodist University Mustang, this time targeting offensive guard Josh LeRibeus.

A 6-3, 312-pound specimen, he is ideal as a run-blocker and excels in the zone-blocking scheme.  Here are some of his mentionables, according to his Combine Draft Profile:

Leribeus returned for his senior campaign after being academically ineligible to play for SMU during his junior season. He returned to be the scrappy, reliable inside blocker that he has been throughout his career.

He has the size and technique inside to play early at the next level or be a reliable backup, which gives him fifth-round value as a guard or potential center.

Taken in the first half of the third round, LeRibeus will be expected to fill a role in improving the Redskins offensive line in 2012 and beyond.  Coming from the Run-n-Shoot offense, he shouldn’t have the transition time to the Pro Style offense that plagued Aldrick Robinson, but his adjustment from Conference USA competition could take time.

LeRibeus missed a season of college because of academic ineligibility, but sounds like he’s re-dedicated himself to football and academics since then.  He was also born and raised in Texas, and says he hated the Cowboys as a kid.
