Many were impressed by the picks that the Washington Football Team made in the 2021 NFL Draft. But what should the realistic expectations be for each pick?
With rookie minicamp underway in Ashburn, the youngsters of the team are on everyone’s minds. The team finished at 7-9 last season, atop the NFC East. Fans and coaches will hope the Washington Football Team will build on that performance and be the first team in the division to repeat the title in 16 years.
Rookies are the building blocks to every team’s future. Washington was lucky enough to draft 10 players with high potential — all of whom have signed already.
Potential is the key word. Washington Football Team fans were spoiled with the instant production from last year’s class with the likes of DROY Chase Young, running back Antonio Gibson, and 7th-round steal Kam Curl.
Will this year’s class have the same production? One can only hope. However, it is important to be realistic with the players and trust the developmental aspect of the game that we know Ron Rivera and his staff are good at.
