Washington Football Team Round 7 pick
The final selection in the 2021 NFL Draft for the Washington Football Team comes at pick 244. Washington is looking for a prospect that has a foundational trait or two that’ll lead to making a difference at one phase of the game.
Playing at a smaller school doesn’t do some prospects favors, but the tape doesn’t lie. Washington’s final pick is instinctive and smart, despite size and speed limitations.
Shemar Jean-Charles isn’t a great athlete and won’t be able to play on the outside at the next level. Sure, he is limited as an athlete, but he makes up for it with sound instincts and production on the field. He’ll likely be relegated to rotational play on the inside as a corner, but on special teams, he’ll have to make a name for himself.
Jean-Charles had 17 pass breakups last season, tied for first among all CB’s last year, in addition to only three missed tackles. He has strong instincts that make up for his lack of size and speed.
And while he likely will fight for every snap in the NFL, he’s a solid option for the Washington Football Team to take a chance on at CB.
