The newly-rebranded Washington Commanders entered their first draft with their new moniker having addressed the biggest need last month, acquiring quarterback Carson Wentz from the Indianapolis Colts.

That addition took up a significant chunk of Washington’s salary cap and created additional needs, which the team attempted to address in the draft.

Washington selected a sure-handed receiver to pair with Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel, a possible replacement for Daron Payne at defensive tackle, a powerful runner to work along with Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic, a safety who could serve as a special teams gunner, a quarterback who shockingly fell to the fifth round, an athletic tight end to play behind starter Logan Thomas, an offensive lineman who plays multiple positions and a cornerback.

For the fifth straight year, the Washington Football Team went defense in the first round, selecting Kentucky linebacker Jamin Davis to man the middle and play behind one of the best defensive lines in the league. The team picked its likely long-term answer at left tackle, added secondary and defensive end depth, selected a couple thousand-yard receivers, drafted a blocking tight end to compliment starter Logan Thomas and found its Nick Sundberg replacement at long snapper.

The only five players the Redskins should consider at No. 13

The Washington Redskins have many holes to fill and, sitting at 13 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft, are in an advantageous situation to improve their roster. They have the flexibility to do that through staying put and taking the best player available or trading back and recouping a third-round pick to make up for the one they surrendered in the January trade that landed quarterback Alex Smith. Trading up in the draft appears very unlikely and unnecessary at this stage. (more…)

New Era’s 2015 Redskins Draft Hat Revealed

By Jake Russell

Whoever is selected by the Washington Redskins with their first-round pick on Thursday, April 30 will be sporting a very unique lid.

Unlike the three options from 2014, there will be just one primary hat marketed as the draft day cap by New Era when the picks walk across the stage in Chicago.

The latest Redskins hat features a reflective logo on the front and the Washington, D.C. skyline under the bill. The Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument and the Capitol building are the skyline’s primary features.
