SMU’s Aldrick Robinson was drafted by the Washington Redskins this weekend in the 2011 NFL draft. The Texas native was the 178th selection overall, going 13th in the sixth round.

While at SMU Robinson was a constant force on offense. As wide receiver he caught a school record 14 touchdowns with 1,301 receiving yards in last season alone.

Robinson is the third Mustang in three years to make it to the NFL level. He joins the likes of New Orleans Saint punter Thomas Morstead and Pittsburgh Steeler wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.
