Kyshoen Jarrett and Laurence Gibson were teammates at Virginia Tech.  They’ll now be arch enemies in the NFL.

Jarrett, a strong safety prospect, was selected in the sixth round with the #181 overall pick by the Washington Redskins.  He hopes to compete for playing time on a defense that is in major need of an upgrade, particularly in the secondary.

Meanwhile, offensive tackle Laurence Gibson was taken in the seventh round with the #243 overall pick by the Dallas Cowbows, the division rivals of the Redskins.  The Cowboys have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL, so he’ll hope to compete for a spot in the two-deep this season.

Virginia Tech has had at least one player selected in every NFL Draft since 1994.

Best of luck to both Jarrett and Gibson in their NFL careers.

  1. I was listening to Sportstalk 980’s live coverage of the draft in NoVa when Jarrett was drafted. The radio guys weren’t too familiar with him, and weren’t sure how to pronounce his first name. Then one of the guys got a text from one of his NFL “insider” sources saying that Jarrett was one of his favorite safety prospects in the draft. They also talked about him being a special teams asset. And as a Redskins fan, I can ensure you that they need a major upgrade in that department.
