The Washington Football Team could be looking to move up in the 2021 NFL Draft.
The Washington Football Team is getting ready for the 2021 NFL Draft and all bets are off as to what they could do with the 19th overall pick. There are a lot of offensive tackles that are drawing the attention of WFT fans and there are some appealing linebackers on the board as well. Perhaps a receiver, safety, or cornerback could be in play as well.
There certainly isn’t a shortage of options for Washington to consider there… That is, if they are still in possession of the 19th pick on draft day.
According to the latest rumors, it’s possible that Washington could be looking to trade up in the draft to add a talented player to their roster.
As reported by ESPN’s Dan Graziano and Jeremy Fowler, Washington has “done legwork on a potential trade up” and could consider making a move. However, the reports indicate that Washington might not be looking for a quarterback if they do make the leap.
"The Washington Football Team, which owns the No. 19 pick, has done legwork on a potential trade up, making phone calls to teams in or around the top 10. We’ve talked to a few personnel evaluators who think Washington’s target is not a quarterback. Most sizable jumps are for a passer, though, and it requires parting with serious draft capital to make it happen."
Now, it’s worth noting that it is smokescreen season, so this could all just be Washington floating the idea around. But at this point, trading up remains a possibility for Ron Rivera’s team.
So, that begs the question, who could Washington be trading up for? And who might they look to trade with? Let’s have a look at the options.
