Khaleke Hudson is heading to Washington.

The Michigan standout was drafted in the fifth round, 162nd overall in the NFL Draft. The three-time All-Big Ten player holds the Michigan record for tackles for loss in a game, with eight. That's also tied for an NCAA record.

"I'm just a playmaker," Hudson said on a conference call after the pick. "I'll put the team on my back if I have to."

Hudson recorded 225 tackles in his 44 games at Michigan, amassing 114 solo and 23 tackles for a loss. He registered 10 sacks over four seasons, and had two interceptions.
