Former Iowa offensive guard Adam Gettis was selected in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, as the Washington Redskins took him with the 141st overall pick. Gettis is the second offensive lineman to be taken in this year’s draft, joining first-round pick Riley Reiff.

After only being able to start two games in 2010 due to injuries, Gettis started all 13 games during the 2011 season at right guard. He also started one game as a sophomore during the 2009 season against UNI, filling in for an injured Julian Vandervelde.

Last season, the Redskins went 5-11.
