Benjamin St-Juste - Commanders CB

It didn't take long for the Washington Commanders to strengthen their cornerback options during the 2023 NFL Draft. Those in power took Emmanuel Forbes at No. 16 overall and Quan Martin also came into the fold with the team's second-round selection.

This provides the Commanders with two explosive players capable of starting immediately. What this means for other options is unclear, but Benjamin St-Juste stands to benefit greatly from the two aforementioned defensive backs joining the ranks.

St-Juste looks set to occupy starting responsibilities on the outside after making strides last season. The former Minnesota stud was far more assured in coverage when one examines his full body of work, giving up just 47.7 percent of his targets and looking more confident with extra experience.

The 2020 third-rounder has the size and length that compliments what Forbes and Martin bring to the table. If the Commanders avoid the temptation of releasing Kendall Fuller, this can become a productive fivesome with Cameron Danztler Sr. also picked up off the waiver wire.

Hopes are high for St-Juste. Having better quality in the cornerback room will only help his cause.
