The 2023 NFL Draft is over and the Washington Commanders have their guys. Here is a quick snapshot of each player what they might bring to the team this year. Read and Share.

1st RD Pk #16

CB Emmanuel Forbes, Mississippi State

Forbes is a 6'1", 166lb cover corner who has excelled in the SEC the past three years. His opportunistic nature has played well resulting in 14 INT's and 20 pass deflections in his career. His instincts are elite just like his preparation habits. Forbes is an avid watcher of film, always studying his opponents to ensure he is in the right position to make a play on the ball.

2nd RD Pk #47

SS/FS/Nickel DB Jatavius Martin, Illinois

Jatavius is versatile defensive back. He can line up at Free Safety, Strong Safety but more importantly he can line up as a Nickel Defender in the slot. With more teams using the Nickel Defense now than ever it's extremely important to have a DB who cover receivers big and small from that position. Martin can do just that and is a solid tackler even at his smaller size of 5'11", 194lb.

3rd RD Pk #97

C Ricky Stromberg, Arkansas

Experienced multi-year starter at Center. Stromberg is an extremely smart player who made all the calls/protections/checks for his offense. Good zone run blocker. Mentally and physically tough player. Should compete early for the starting job.

4th RD Pk #118

G/T Braeden Daniels, Utah

Braeden Daniels played a lot of games at Utah. Starting a total of 42 games. Braeden offers great position flex being able to play Guard or Tackle. He has great quickness which he utilizes in zone schemes. Will need time to develop.

5th RD Pk #137

DE K.J. Henry, Clemson

Henry is a highly athletic pass rusher who started at one of the top college programs. The team felt so strongly about him that they traded up to get him. Everyone who knows KJ has raved about his leadership and charisma. He showcases great burst up field off the snap he uses to get by tackles. He also uses his hands effectively while bending the edge enroute to bringing down the pass rusher. He's a player who can be moved around the defense and should see a lot of time this fall.

6th RD Pk #193

RB Chris Rodriguez Jr., Kentucky

The Senior SEC running back is a hard charger with good vision between the tackles. He won't break off many big runs if any but he will certainly break tackles and gain positive yards. He's also a solid pass protector. He will compliment Brian Robinson Jr and Antonio Gibson very nicely this season.

7th RD Pk #233

LB Andre Jones, Louisiana

Andre is a good sized edge rusher with long arms that help keep offensive linemen away from him. Andre will need continued development on his pass rush moves. In the meantime he will make his mark on special teams bolstering a group that was very good this past season.
