Iowa Hawkeye Outland Trophy winner and first-round draft pick Brandon Scherff has signed his rookie contract with the Washington Redskins.
The team announced the deal Today.

Scherff  was the No. 5 overall pick in the draft. The Redskins hadn't taken a player in the first round since 2012, when they chose Robert Griffin III after sending a bevy of picks to the St. Louis Rams to move up in the draft.

The 6-foot-5, 319-pound Scherff played left tackle in college, but the Redskins plan to move him to the right side of their line.

All 10 of Washington's draft choices are under contract.
