Former Iowa strong safety Jordan Bernstine was selected in the seventh round of the 2012 NFL Draft, as the Washington Redskins took him with the 217th overall pick. Bernstine became the second Hawkeye selected by the Redskins in this year’s draft after they took former offensive lineman Adam Gettis in the fifth round.

He is also the sixth player from Iowa to be taken in this year’s draft, tying the record for most taken in one draft set each of the last two years.

Two years after breaking his ankle, Bernstine finally cracked the top of Iowa’s 2-deep, starting the last 11 games of the 2011 season. He compiled 83 of his 108 career tackles as a senior and also returned 30 kickoffs for 713 yards.

Last season, the Redskins went 5-11.
