The Washington Football Team was able to find some talent that fits their scheme. Look for these players to spend some time and really develop under Coach Rivera. Let’s also not forget that this is the NFL (‘Not for Long’, as some players refer to it), but Coach Rivera seems to be in a good spot. He should have the time that he needs to help develop these players.

At the same token, look for OT Samuel Cosmi to help the Offensive Line struggles. As we can see, Washington had draft picks in multiple positions in order to add depth. Some positions were drafted multiple times, but these positions usually require a lot of depth in general. To add to this, they were primarily made in the 7th round.

 

Here is the WFT draft class for reference, which can also be found in our previous article:

The Washington Football Team

  • 1, Pick 19 – LB- Jamin Davis, Kentucky
  • 2, Pick 51 – OT- Samuel Cosmi, Texas
  • 3, Pick 74 (from San Francisco) – CB- Benjamin St-Juste, Minnesota
  • 3, Pick 82 – WR- Dyami Brown, North Carolina
  • 4, Pick 124 – TE- John Bates, Boise State
  • 5, Pick 163 – S- Darrick Forrest, Cincinnati
  • 6, Pick 225 (from Philadelphia) – LS- Camaron Cheeseman, Michigan
  • 7, Pick 240 (from San Francisco via Philadelphia) – DE- William Bradley-King, Baylor
  • 7, Pick 246 – DE- Shaka Toney, Penn State
  • 7, Pick 258 (from Kansas City via Miami) – WR- Dax Milne, BYU

 

Again, this was a tough draft, but the WFT was able to fill in some needs. It was still disappointing to see that they did not fill in their biggest need of all: the QB position. Who knows how much more QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has left in the tank? Let’s also hope that he is able to stay healthy for at least another season. All in all, the WFT seems to have things pointing in the right direction for them, and are poised to at least have a better season than last year. They may have done just enough to stay in contention for this coming season and defend their division title.

 

Bold Prediction:

I predict that the WFT will trade for, or at the very least pick up, another QB before the end of the season. This is to not say that Ryan Fitzpatrick is not the answer but, as I have stated before, he may just be the bridge to help develop another QB.
