4 Washington players whose stock is plummeting after Week 17 loss

3. Keith Ismael
Washington’s 2020 draft class came under scrutiny after Antonio Gandy-Golden, the team’s fourth-round pick that year, was released on Saturday and Keith Isamel didn’t help matters with his showing vs the Eagles.
Thrust into his fourth career start with Chase Roullier and Tyler Larsen out for the season with injuries, Ismael proved no match for Jason Hargrave and the rest of Philadelphia’s interior defensive linemen.
We recall the 2020 fifth-rounder getting bamboozled on a third down stunt that resulted in an Eagles rusher getting a free shot at Heinicke. All in all, Ismael allowed a team-high six pressures and two sacks, per PFF.
Pro Football Focus has yet to release their player grades from the game, but you have to think Ismael ranked near the bottom. It was a forgettable afternoon for the second-year pro, who likely won’t find himself near the field in the future as long as one of Roullier and Larsen are available for selection.
Unfortunately, he’s all Washington’s got right now.
