The Washington Commanders added Carson Wentz earlier in the month, yet his contract situation coupled with his inconsistent play over the last two seasons potentially leaves Washington without a long-term answer under center.
Earlier in the offseason, I believed Washington would add a low-end starting quarterback of the Carson Wentz, Jimmy Garoppolo, Teddy Bridgewater ilk while still adding a rookie in round one.
Yet with the trade package being made known to the public about what Washington did to bring Wentz and his contract to the Nation’s Capitol, I’d be shocked if the Burgundy and Gold actually went the QB route at No. 11 overall.
Thus, I think Washington fans and media members alike should get acclimated to the second-round crop of quarterbacks that will be available at pick No. 47 for the Commanders.
Whether it’s UNC’s Sam Howell, Nevada’s Carson Strong, or the main subject for this piece, Desmond Ridder, the Commanders should not take a look at the talent under center available for them on Day 2. In fact, maybe Ridder is a low-risk, high-reward kind of talent that Washington can use long-term.
