Iowa safety Jordan Bernstine shrugged off a NFL Scouting Combine snub and was picked up by the Washington Redskins in the seventh round of Saturday's NFL draft.

Bernstine is the second Iowa player drafted by the Redskins on Saturday. Guard Adam Gettis was picked in the fifth round.

Bernstine, who started 11 games last year for Iowa, ranked seventh in the Big Ten in kickoff returns (23.8 yards per return) and 10th in tackles per game (7.4). He had 89 tackles at strong safety last year.

Bernstine was not invited to the combine but zoomed into draft consideration based on his Pro Day workout in Iowa City. He recorded a 4.43 40-yard dash time, and unofficially ran a 4.38 40-yard dash.
