Washington Football Team picks Rounds 4-7
Robert Hainsey, Notre Dame – 6-foot-5, 305 pounds
Robert Hainsey is not receiving the attention he deserves in this draft, mostly due to the fact that so many talented Notre Dame Dame players will be chosen in the first few rounds. Is that fair? Not really, but welcome to the harsh realities of any draft.

Hainsey was a superb lineman for the Fighting Irish and he put together an impressive showing at the Senior Bowl. Hainsey is likely to be a candidate at right tackle in the NFL and he could slide to the interior as well. Adding 10 pounds to his frame will help his cause. The Washington Football Team could draft him on day three and he could be a hidden gem.
Dan Moore, Texas A&M – 6-foot-6, 310 pounds
Dan Moore has everything you like in an offensive tackle. Size. Talent. Work ethic. And a ton of untapped potential. Moore needs to add about 10 pounds to his frame and the only issue will be gaining experience in the NFL. It will take a couple of years to develop his talent, but the chances of sticking around in an NFL uniform are very good.
Moore was part of the best overall offensive line (arguably) in college football. If the Washington Football Team can be patient with this Aggie, the investment could pay handsome dividends in the future.
Tommy Doyle, Miami (OH) – 6-foot-8, 325 pounds
Tommy Doyle started at both tackle positions for Miami and decided to opt out of the 2020 season. It was a mistake to forgo his senior season, but he is still a good tackle. Doyle will need a couple of years to adjust to the NFL, but with his size and experience, he will be worth the time effort to develop.
Adrian Ealy, Oklahoma – 6-foot-6, 325 pounds
Adrian Ealy possesses the prototypical size for an NFL tackle, but he is very raw and would need two or three years to develop. His path to success in the league is going to be a long process, but the Washington Football Team could decide that he is in their future plans.
Note: Tackles taken in the seventh round are typically projects that take years to develop. Most of these players never make it, but a team will never truly know unless they take the time and effort to see what is out there.
