was included in several 2015 NFL Mock Drafts in the last few months but did not hear his name called while watching the real draft at home with family and friends.

However, Crawford recently signed a free agent deal with the Washington Redskins and is excited for the opportunity.

"It's a moment that I've been waiting for for a long time," Crawford told the Ledger-Enquirer. "The emotions are going to be there and it will be in remembrance of my mother, knowing this is something she would have been very proud to have been a part of. It's going to mean a lot if I get that call and I'm able to say that I'm living out my dream."

Crawford talked about his game and what he brings to the Redskins' defense.

"The way I play the run and the physicality I bring to the game. Being able to be a big, thick guy that can run to the ball and tackle," Crawford said. "And in the passing game, getting my hands up to bat down balls. Pressure the quarterback, get him out of the pocket and things of that nature."

Crawford had 155 tackles, 25.5 tackles for loss, six sacks, one interception, 34 quarterback pressures, eight pass break ups, two caused fumbles and two recovered fumbles in his Clemson career.
