USC WR Drake London
London is a nod from the front office to Wentz in their commitment to him by surrounding him with talent. The USC beast immediately becomes the biggest slot weapon the team has been missing since Jordan Reed.
S Kyle Hamilton is interesting here but taking a safety with a subpar 40 and not a true hard hitter isn’t worth a top 15 selection.
Trading to the back of the first (to perhaps Pittsburgh looking it to grab QB Malik Willis) and acquiring another Day 2 pick while selecting either Chris Olave, Devin Lloyd, or Nakobe Dean would also be a huge win.
MSU LB Troy Andersen
Andersen is an absolute stud Mike LB - the exact position that the Commanders are missing within their LB corps. A 4.4, hard-hitting, first-to-the-hole tackling machine is the answer to Washington’s third-down struggles.
QBs Sam Howell and Matt Corral would also be excellent grabs here should Wentz disappoint. Both of whom have the ideal prototype within the Turner offense (mobile, quick slingers).
QB Bailey Zappe
Zappe has the same physical tools as Malik Willis except he has zero questions about his passing ability against varying defenses yet far less the pedigree and hype.
This is a long shot in the third round with so many other needs but the value is clearly there. An interior lineman or safety in the name of Brisker or local product Nick Cross should they fall would also be viable options.
UNC RB Ty Chandler
The former Tennessee star fulfills the short-yardage spell back that can also contribute as a returner and on the goal line. Chandler has untapped potential that Turner could easily unlock should he find the right amount of touches.
Georgia Tech S Juanyeh Thomas
Thomas becomes a Day 1 core special team asset and could easily fill the Commanders’ coveted Buffalo Nickel / Nickelbacker void left by Thomas’ pro comparison (Landon Collins). Additionally, he’s a true return threat. A 7th-round selection of Thomas could be the steal of Washington’s draft.
Wake Forest OL Zack Tom
Tom played tackle at WF but he is more than agile enough to shift inside should Washington continue its history of lineman of musical chairs. At 6’4 300+, Tom also fits the mold of a swing tackle with underrated pass protection skills.
