New year, same dumb ass team name. The Washington Football enter the 2021 NFL Draft as reigning NFC East champs but still have plenty of holes to solve. Hell, if they weren’t playing in that division, they’d be picking 5-10 spots higher. Let’s dive right into Washington’s strategy on draft day.
- Round 1 (19th overall)
- Round 2 (51st overall)
- Round 3 (74th overall) via San Francisco in trade for OT Trent Williams
- Round 3 (82nd overall)
- Round 4 (124th overall)
- Round 5 (163rd overall)
- Round 7 (244th overall) via Las Vegas Raiders in trade for OT David Sharpe
- Round 7 (246th overall)
The WFT has one extra pick thanks to the Trent Williams trade. Well, they’d probably rather have Williams on the roster which is where I think they will go with their first choice. Geron Christian and Sahddiq Charles are not long term options at the position.
Teven Jenkins out of Oklahoma State could be on Washington’s radar at that point in the draft. Jenkins is one of the more heralded left tackle prospects in this class. Picking at 19, you would have to assume 3-4 other tackles will be off the board by that point. Jenkins could be their man.
I’m not saying I would do this but Washington just might go the developmental QB route in round two. They paid both Taylor Heinicke and Ryan Fitzpatrick this offseason. Having someone sit and learn theoretically makes sense. Kyle Trask is a big quarterback who can sling it a bit. After a big year at Florida, could Washington pull the trigger on him in round two?
What about another receiver in the third round? Curtis Samuel was a nice addition, but he’s not enough. Terry McLaurin needs one more side kick next to him. What about Tutu Atwell at Louisville? Atwell is an undersized receiver that can be used in a number of ways. He could fit in nicely as Washington continues to build.
