Redskins signed sixth-round OT Tom Compton to a four-year contract.

He's Washington's fifth draft pick to sign, leaving just RG3, Josh LeRibeus, Kirk Cousins, and Keenan Robinson to get under contract. Compton, the 193rd overall pick, goes 6-foot-5, 313 with 34-inch arms, giving him necessary length to stay at tackle. Compton is a zone-blocking system fit because he can get to the second level. He'll play guard or right tackle in D.C.

Redskins selected South Dakota OT Tom Compton with the No. 193 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Compton was a four-year and an all-conference selection since his sophomore year with the Coyotes. While he offers quality size and athleticism to play at the NFL level, Compton will have to improve his strength and footwork to develop into a starter. The Redskins surely appreciate that he gained experience in a zone system at South Dakota.
