The Washington Football Team will pick twice in the third round this year.
Dylan Moses, Linebacker, Alabama – 6-3, 235
When in doubt, just grab yourself an Alabama defensive player and you will not regret it. In recent years, Washington has brought several Alabama defenders to the team and the strategy has been one of success.
The powers that be in Ashburn could add another Crimson Tide player next month. Dylan Moses is an underrated linebacker and adding him early in the third round makes a lot of sense. When the 2020 college season began, Moses was considered a lock for the first round. Is he still a good defender? Why did Moses’ stock drop so much?
First, many underclassmen have entered the draft this year and that caused him to drop from a perceived late first-rounder to a late second-round prospect. Also, he is not a pure edge rusher and that affects his draft status as well. However, Moses is still one of the better linebackers in the draft and taking him early in the third round will pay dividends for Washington.
Trill Williams, Cornerback, Syracuse – 6-2, 200
Trill Williams has been a starter for the Syracuse Orange since his freshman year and is highly underrated. If Williams had stayed another year in school, he would likely be one of the top corners available in 2022. That could be a huge benefit to the Washington Football Team if they decide to select him on the second day of the draft.
Williams is physically imposing and he can play zone or man coverage when asked to do so. He can jam smaller receivers at the line, but his coverage lacks some depth against taller, speedy, and agile receivers. Williams will need a year to adjust to the NFL and could be a solid starter by his second year.
