As a Maryland fan, I couldn’t have been happier with the Washington Redskins third round selection on Sunday. Kevin Barnes is a hard-hitting cornerback with decent hands and above average coverage skills.
If you aren’t a Maryland fan, you may or may not have heard of this kid, so for reference, feel free to ask.

That was the hit of the season. Man.
Our friends atalso posted a clip from Fox 5 here in DC about Barnes.

- Fifth Round, #186: Robert Henson, LB, TCU

- Seventh Round, #243: Marko Mitchell, WR, Nevada
