Redskins select TE Reed of Florida in 3rd round

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The Washington Redskins have selected tight end Jordan Reed of Florida in the third round of the NFL draft.

The Redskins chose Reed with the 85th overall pick Friday night.

Reed is 6-foot-2 and weighs 236 pounds. He was recruited as a quarterback by Florida, but he was moved to tight end in 2011.

Last year he led the Gators in receiving with 45 catches for 559 yards.

The choice was somewhat of a surprise because the Redskins are well-stocked at tight end with Fred Davis, Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen.

Washington took cornerback David Amerson of North Carolina State in the second round earlier Friday.
