Redskins selected Boise State CB Brandyn Thompson with the No. 213 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

A three-year starter for the Broncos, Thompson doesn't have the size-speed combo to start in the NFL. He is well-skilled with quick feet, though, with the potential to end up as a solid nickel or dime back. Thompson has special teams experience, too, which will come in handy as a rookie.
