Washington Commanders

The Washington Commanders are entering a new era in the nation's capital this offseason. Washington hired general manager Adam Peters and head coach Dan Quinn to replace the middling regime under former head coach Ron Rivera.

The top priority for the new Commanders' leadership this offseason is finding a quarterback of the future. They'll likely use their second pick in the first round of the draft to select the best QB available. UNC's Drake Maye and LSU's Jayden Daniels are both realistic options for the Commanders to draft second overall.

There is also the possibility that the Commanders trade up to get the first overall pick since the Chicago Bears have been openly shopping that pick for the right deal.

Whichever quarterback the Commanders end up in the first round of the draft, they'll need to add some support pieces this offseason. The Commanders need to bolster the interior offensive line and the receiving corps via free agency and their later picks in the draft.

Since the Commanders have an early-second round pick, they could use that spot to add a potent weapon to the receiving corps like Mitchell. He could give offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury a wideout to pair with 1,000-yard receiver Terry McLaurin.

Kingsbury returning to a role purely focused on offensive play-calling and should benefit his top wideouts with the Commanders since he's known for his wide open air raid schemes.
