Which draft prospects must the Washington Commanders keep a close eye on during the upcoming 2023 NFL Scouting Combine?

Now that the Washington Commanders have their new offensive guru in place, attention turns to what’s sure to be another eventful offseason for the franchise. One that could raise further optimism regarding an instant playoff return in 2023 after narrowly missing out last season.

There are obvious needs to fill right now. Fortunately for the Commanders, they could have a substantial amount of salary-cap space, and those in power also have the benefit of eight selections during the NFL Draft to further bolster their options.

Assessments surrounding potential prospects of interest are ongoing. And one upcoming event is arguably the most important throughout the pre-draft process.

With this in mind, here are five prospects the Commanders should monitor closely during the NFL Scouting Combine in 2023.

Commanders must monitor Luke Wypler

  • Center | Ohio State Buckeyes

The Washington Commanders need some fresh faces across the offensive line. Especially if they want to ensure Sam Howell thrives as the team’s starting option under Eric Bieniemy’s guidance in 2023.

Luke Wypler is a prospect of note that could be available sometime on Day 2. The talented center has the athleticism and technical prowess to excel on an every-down basis, with his pre-snap communication and recognition of opposing schemes something else that further boosts his stock.
