74. Washington Football Team: Indiana S Jamar Johnson
Before you automatically hate this pick, allow me to rationalize it using an explanation Washington Football Team fans can relate to.
Remember the Troy Apke experiment at free safety? Of course you do. It was rough. And what made it even worse was that Apke had all the physical traits. But he lacked the instincts to use them effectively on the back end. Now that I’ve reminded you, allow me to introduce you to one of the most instinctive safeties in the 2021 NFL Draft: Jamar Johnson.
Johnson is very smart and opportunistic, and he’s also a fairly solid athlete for his size. Standing at 6-foot-2, 205 pounds, Johnson has a 4.58 40-yard dash, a 35-inch vertical, and a 122-inch broad jump. Johnson’s athletic profile is not dissimilar to Kamren Curl’s, but Johnson profiles as a better fit in coverage. The two compliment each other very well, and Johnson could ultimately be the instinctive, forward-thinking threat the Washington Football Team needs at free safety.
75. Dallas Cowboys: Houston EDGE Payton Turner
76. New York Giants: USC DT Marlon Tuipulotu
77. San Francisco 49ers (via LAC): Illinois OG Kendrick Green
78. Denver Broncos (via MIN): Louisiana Tech DL Milton Williams
79. Las Vegas Raiders: Oklahoma State WR Tylan Wallace
80. Las Vegas Raiders: Iowa DT Daviyon Nixon
81. Miami Dolphins: Stanford C Drew Dalman
82. Washington Football Team: Boston College TE Hunter Long
I think tight end is a bit of an overrated need for the Washington Football Team, personally. With all their weapons at receiver and running back, the Washington Football Team won’t have to involve a No. 2 tight end very often, and Logan Thomas should have at least one or two more good years left, considering how little he’s been used over the course of his career.
Nevertheless, if tight ends are going off the board quickly, and if the value is right, it makes sense to address the position in the middle rounds. Hunter Long is a prospect who deserves some attention, in that sense. If he’s there at No. 82, the Washington Football Team might consider him. He’s a big target who has enough burst and fluidity to be a nice seam threat, and he’s tough at the contact point, which should help the Washington Football Team convert on crucial downs.
