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.
