ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - The Washington Redskins have selected guard Josh LeRibeus of SMU in the third round of the NFL draft.

LeRibeus was chosen with the No. 71 overall pick Friday. The Redskins originally held the 69th selection, but they moved down two spots and picked up a seventh-round choice in a trade with the Buffalo Bills.

LeRibeus is the second player taken by the Redskins in the draft. They chose quarterback Robert Griffin III in the first round on Thursday.

Washington didn't have a selection in the second round, having traded that pick to the St. Louis Rams in the deal that allowed them to move into position to take Griffin.
