A roster projection for the Washington Football Team with the 2021 NFL Draft in the rearview mirror.
In the 2021 NFL Draft, the Washington Football Team selected 10 players. And shortly after the draft concluded, the Washington Football Team signed Buffalo RB Jaret Patterson as an undrafted free agent, totaling 12 new rookies added for the Washington Football Team (Sammis Reyes included).
That concludes the majority of the 2021 offseason for the Washington Football Team. Overall, it was an effective one. They upgraded many positions on the roster, filled some key roster voids, and added key pieces of depth throughout the roster.
And most importantly, they upgraded the quarterback position. While Ryan Fitzpatrick is by no means the long-term single caller for the franchise, Fitzpatrick is better in almost every way, than the quarterbacks that took the field for Washington in 2021.
It will be interesting to see how Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen perform. Can they develop into more than just quality backups?
The state of the Washington Football Team’s roster is much improved from the unit that existed when coach Ron Rivera took over in January 2020. It is slowly becoming a complete roster that can find its franchise signal-caller when the roster is truly ready.
With that, here is my way-too-early prediction of the 53-man roster for the Washington Football Team. I will finish it up with some overall roster thoughts and the outlook for Washington.
