“3rd-round pick Josh LeRibeus, who was selected eighth overall in that round, out of SMU is now officially a member of the Redskins. He signed his contract, and announced it on ESPN 980’s “Inside The Locker Room” show.”
In an unusual sequence of events, LeRibeus was the last member of the Redskins 2012 draft crop to sign his deal. He signed hours after the Redskins agreed to terms with first round pick Robert Griffin III; in the vast majority of cases, it’s the highest/earliest draft picks made by a team to be among the last to sign, with middle round picks (like LeRibeus) often signed well in advance of rookie or official training camps.
The Redskins now have all players they selected in the 2012 draft under contract.
