Looking at what the Washington Football Team could do in the 2021 NFL Draft.

The Washington Football Team is now just counting the hours until the 2021 NFL Draft.  The addition of new players who hope to carve out a career with the Burgundy and Gold will be welcomed by team officials and fans.

The draft is nearly her. We made it and now it is time to cross into the promised land of football hopes and dreams for more than 250 players.

For fans, it is a time of excitement and hope.  Fans hope the best players can be chosen.  Fans hope their favorite team will avoid players that come with any question marks.

Football is the only sport that can attract such attention at any given time of the year.  The regular season, playoffs, Super Bowl, free agency, camps, preseason, and the draft make for a year-long lovefest for fans and analysts.  It’s the only sport in America that can generate such interest.

For fans of the Washington Football Team, this time of year is always exciting.  Over many years, Washington held the unofficial title of “Offseason Champs”, but the fans were not happy.  Adding pricey free agents and drafting players with the supposed fancy pedigree was a yearly strategy that didn’t produce good results on the playing field.

Over the last 16 months, Washington has been in another team rebuild, but the organization has gone through numerous positive changes.  The Burgundy and Gold is finally on the right path and the 2021 NFL Draft will be another step in the right direction.

The coaching staff and front office have been very tight-lipped with everything involving the draft.  Analysts and fans have many different scenarios occurring later this week for the Washington Football Team.

The final mock drafts are being published, but everything regarding this team is still a bunch of question marks.  Frankly, that is a good thing and it is nice to know that Washington is being run by a staff of dedicated professionals.

Trying to put together mock drafts during this offseason has been very difficult and we have the front office to thank for it.  Again, that is a good thing.  The challenges for this final 2021 mock from yours truly are plentiful, but the effort must go forward.

Next week, we will grade the prospects and provide you with a self-grade of this mock – there is no grading on the curve.  It’s time to bid farewell to the 2021 specialty, short round, and positional mocks.  Today, it is for real.  Here we go – let’s take a look!
