Jayden Daniels made an impressive start to life with the Washington Commanders. The quarterback knows what a huge responsibility this is. He came into the organization with an exceptional attitude, winning over teammates and coaches with high-level production in practice and an exceptional work ethic away from the field.

This is a great start, but the hard work is just getting started. Daniels must continue on his upward trajectory and take on coaching when things get more intense at Washington's training camp. How much he'll feature during the preseason remains to be seen, but the Commanders would be wise to get some reps into the player before he takes the field in Week 1 at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Daniels is the embodiment of the good vibes emanating from the Commanders currently. He's calm and vibrant, possessing a natural aura that people can get behind. This quickly became synonymous with the atmosphere across the franchise thanks to the new regime's sterling recruitment and coaching methods.

The former LSU star is rubbing off positively on those he's going into battle with. On this topic, here are three Commanders players benefitting greatly from Daniels' smooth transition from college to the pros.

Jahan Dotson - Commanders WR

This is a big upcoming season for Jahan Dotson. The Washington Commanders need the former first-round pick to go from a moderate performer to a breakout star. He's also got the quarterback capable of spearheading his potential renaissance.

Dotson wanted the Commanders to draft Daniels. He got his wish and the encouraging chemistry developed between the two over early offseason workouts can serve both in good stead next season.

The Commanders believed Dotson could be a legitimate No. 2 option alongside Terry McLaurin when they took him No. 16 overall during the 2021 NFL Draft out of Penn State. Unfortunately, the jury is still out entering Year 3 of his professional career.

Dotson now has a quarterback who can make him more of a vertical threat, which is something that took the college football world by storm once upon a time. Maximizing this opportunity will be crucial to cement his status as a long-term cornerstone piece.
