The 2022 NFL Draft is just over two weeks away. The Washington Commanders are closer to an infusion of talent from the best that college football has to offer the league teams this year.
The NFL Draft draws closer and the nervous anticipation from fans of the Washington Commanders is growing every single day. The long wait is nearly over and new players from the world of college football will stroll into team headquarters in Ashburn before we know it. Many fans are actually hoping the Burgundy and Gold will be able to trade down in the first round or two and gain some significant draft capital. That’s possible – especially in an offseason where many trades have occurred already and a substantial number of players are signing with new teams in free agency.
We recently featured a mock draft that contained a couple of trades. It wouldn’t be surprising if that happens, but we are producing a smallish mock draft today that features zero trades. None. Nada. That scenario could actually occur later this month and this mock could show us what may happen on April 28-30. The Commanders have six draft choices and they do not have picks in rounds three and five. The third round pick was surrendered with the recent trade for quarterback Carson Wentz and the fifth rounder was part of a trade package that brought long snapper Camaron Cheeseman to Washington last year.
This mock is simple and short. Team needs are wide receiver, inside linebacker, defensive tackle depth, defensive secondary depth, and offensive line depth. With just six draft picks, the front office is going to need to be meticulous and have a bit of old-fashioned luck. Here is your no-trade mock for 2022!
A no-trade Commanders Mock Draft
Drake London, Wide Receiver, Southern California – 6-4, 220
*** Did not work out at the Combine or team pro day due to lingering injury
Drake London was unable to work out for teams this spring, but he should be ready for the rookie training camp weekend in May. With 88 receptions and nearly 1,100 yards in just eight games last fall, London possesses the abilities to be an elite receiver from day one.
Chad Muma, Inside Linebacker, Wyoming – 6-3, 240
*** The Numbers
- Hand: 10
- Arm: 31.5
- Wing: 77
- Vertical: 40
- Bench Press: 27
- Broad Jump: 10’9”
- 3 Cone: 6.9
- Short Shuttle: 4.21
- 40: 4.63
Put your fears aside if you are concerned about the college team that Chad Muma played for over the last four years. He is one of the best inside linebackers in this draft and the former Wyoming Cowboy played in a pro-style defense. Muma could be a pro bowl player for a decade or more.
