When the 2021 NFL Draft draws to a close on Saturday, there is one more element of adding college players to negotiate – the undrafted free agents.

There will be another feeding frenzy for all NFL teams on Saturday and Sunday following the draft.  The annual scramble to sign college players who were not drafted commences immediately after Mr. Irrelevant is selected.

The rush to sign UDFAs doesn’t bring as much excitement as the draft itself, but a hidden gem or two can still be found if teams are lucky to find that cherished golden nugget.

Potential Washington Football Team undrafted free agents

The Washington Football Team is likely to sign approximately 10 of those players (educated guess) and they certainly hope to find their diamond in the rocky landscape of the vast UDFA wilderness.

Most of these players will be with the team for no more than a few months and a few could find their way to the practice squad.  Yes, there could be a player from this group who makes his way to the roster of 53, but it doesn’t happen too often.

Today, we will take a look at some of those potential UDFAs that Washington could target this weekend and early next week.  A few of the players that we list could be taken in the sixth or seventh rounds, but most of what you will see here are players who must wait until after the draft to get (hopefully) a phone call.

Also, there could be some players who will get an invitation to attend rookie camp for a tryout with the team.  It’s not unheard of for an invitee to sign a contract.  That is what happened to former Washington Football Team center/guard Casey Dunn from Auburn in 2018.  He spent a year with the team and was able to live out a dream, even if it was for a small amount of time.

Today, we are going to list players on offense and defense.  A small amount of information on each player will be provided for your convenience.  Will the team find a Cam Sims or a Steven Sims in the coming days?  Let’s take a look!
