Two rookies from Iowa are on the Washington Redskins, and both were subjects Monday for Redskins beat writer Mike Jones of the Washington Post.

I'm just excerpting. You should click on the aforementioned link to get Jones' full statements about Adam Gettis, a fifth-round draft pick, and Jordan Bernstine.

?(Offensive lineman Adam) Gettis has actually showed improvement in one-on-one drills. ... Although his team lacks veteran backups, Mike Shanahan believes that Gettis is an addition that has improved the depth of the line.

? ... Jordan Bernstine ... whom the Redskins drafted in the seventh round ... Redskins secondary coach Raheem Morris thinks highly of him. Morris said today that Bernstine is learning both free and strong safety, but is handling the heavy load well.

Anwar Richardson of liked what he saw from Detroit Lions first-round pick Riley Reiff of Iowa on Monday.

Rookie tackle Riley Reiff showed he has the ability to "crack" opponents during practice. Reiff laid an incredibly strong hit on defensive end Ronnell Lewis, plus dominated several other players. He is starting to prove why he was a first-round pick.

For now, ex-Hawkeye Brandon Myers is the Oakland Raiders' No. 1 tight end.
