Washington Draft Needs

by Samantha Previte

  • QB: As much as I love the Fitzpatrick signing, the journeyman signal-caller is 38 years old and it’s unlikely he represents the team’s future at the position. They will likely have to make a trade to have a chance at any of the top prospects.
  • OL: Washington could definitely use help on their offensive line, which ranked fifth-worse in the NFL in sacks allowed per game (3.1).

  • QB: Ryan Fitzpatrick is a short-term fix entering his age-39 season.
  • WR: The team signed Curtis Samuel and Adam Humphries, who saw upwards of 70% of their targets from the slot last season. Washington could still use a wide receiver with size who can win outside.
  • TE: Logan Thomas balled out last season, but he has one starting-caliber season to his name, will be 30 this season and is the team’s lone viable option.
  • LB: Weakside linebacker is their weakest spot on defense. Khaleke Hudson held his own on extremely limited snaps last season, but there is no telling if a player with a fifth-round pedigree will be a reliable option over the long term.
  • CB: Projected starters William Jackson III and Kendall Fuller graded 26th and 43rd, respectively, out of 136 corners last season. Not only were projected No. 3 Jimmy Moreland (78th) and projected No. 4 Daryl Roberts (95th) not as good, but they were also primarily slot corners. Washington could still use more depth on the outside.
