7 Round Commanders Mock Draft **TRADE Edition** | Washington Commanders


Written By Adam Aniba


Round 1- No.2 overall

Jayden Daniels

6'4" 210 lbs | QB | LSU

Washington's new regime selects their franchise quaterback with the 2nd overall pick in the draft.


The LSU signal caller put together an even better season in 2023. Daniels is one of only two players in SEC history to pass for 3,500 yards and rush for 1,000 yards in a season, since former Texas A&M signal caller Johnny Manziel. (FULL Scouting Report)



Round 1- No.26 overall

Tyler Guyton

6'4" 210 lbs | OT | OSU

**TRADE**

*WSH #40, #78 '25 3rd rd

*TB #26 overall

With a much anticipated run on offensive tackles, new Commanders GM Adam Peters elects to trade their 40th & 78th overall picks in addition tp their '25 3rd rounder with Tampa Bay for the 26th overall pick.


Although Guyton started at right tackle in '23, the TCU transfer has reserve/starting experience at left tackle. This is a position Washington can not miss on, considering their investment in new franchise signal caller Jayden Daniels.


Guyton may not have the extensive starting experience similar to his peers in this draft c;lass, but the Sooner tackle has the ceiling to lock down the blind side for Washington for the next decade. (FULL Scouting Report)


Round 2- No.36 overall

Keon Coleman

6'3" 213 lbs | WR | FSU

Some might believe Washington is set at receiver with WR1 Terry MClauren and former 1st round draft pick Jahan Dotson. After the loss of Curtis Samuel (BUF), Dyami Brown and Jamison Crowder are the only other receivers as of note.


After running a 4.61 combine forty-yard dash, many believe the Seminoles receiver should be available well into the 2nd round.


Coleman plays angry and although lacks speed, his ability to climb the latter and be redzone threat is evident. The FSU receiver could be the big-bodied targhet Washington;s offense has been missing.


Round 3- No.67 overall

Marshawn Kneeland

6'3" 267 lbs | DE | W.MICH

After trading former Skins 1st rounders Montez Sweat (CHI) and Chase Young (SF-NO), GM Adam Peters brought in former Cowboys DE Dorance Armstrong along with teammate Dante Fowler Jr. and former 49ers DE Clelin Ferrell.


Only Armstrong was signed beyond 2024, so selecting an edge rusher will be imperative. Kneeland has good length for the position with 34 1/2" arms and would add a solid pass rush/run defender to Washington's defenisve line.



Round 3- No.100 overall

Khyree Jackson

6'4" 210 lbs | CB | ORE

After losing veteran Kendall Fuller (MIA) via free agency and only signing depth/camp bodies at the position in free agency, it seems like a certainity that Washington will slect a CB within their first 100 picks.


Jackson boats the type of length and big play ability needed in Washington. The Alabama transfer had a breakout season for the Ducks in '23 registering 5 tackles for a loss, 2 sacks, 3 interceptions and 7 passes defended.


If not for a late season shoulder injury, Jackson could be in the conversation as a top 65-75 selection. Reports state teams are satisfied his injury has healed and would be an upgrade to Washington's cornerback room (FULL Scouting Report).


Round 5- No.139 overall

Erick All

6'4" 254 lbs | TE | IOWA


Ideally drafting a TE earlier in the draft would have been more ideal, but this is how the board fell.

Washington is in desperate need of a play-making tight end that can stretch the field. Veteran tight end Zach Ertz was brought in during free agency on a 1-year deal, but his best asset might be his experience in Kingsbury's system and ability to mentor at this point in his career.


All is viewed as a high ceiling prospect, but the medicals will need to convince teams that he's draft-able. An ACL tear in October '23 and had a season-ending back injury in 2022 after just three games is notable.


Early chatter is teams are satisfied that All will be a go for training camp and would present excellent value if available this late in the draft.


Round 5- No.152 overall

Christian Jones

6'4" 210 lbs | RT | TEX

In this mock I double dipped for a position of need with another offensive tackle. Although OT Andrew Wylie is the current starter at right tackle, depth and a furture replacement is needed.


The Longhorns run scheme centered around zone, counter with power mixed in. Jones is still developing but could be a valuable swing tackle to start his career. During the Senior Bowl Jones even saw some time at guard in 1-on-1 pass rush drills and impressed (FULL SCOUTING REPORT).



Round 7- No.222 overall

Dallin Holker

6'4" 210 lbs | TE | COL ST

Another tight end selected with the final pick. The Colorado State tight end was just too good to pass up.


Holker was named team captain and a John Mackey Award Finalist (award for nations best college TE). In addition, the Rams tight end was named 1st Team All-Mountain West and 2nd Team All-American by ESPN, USA Today and SI among other outlets.
