After an immensely entertaining offseason, the Washington Commanders began implementing their grand plans for progress through organized team activities. It was a voluntary part of the process, but the renewed sense of hope across the organization meant attendance was high.

This was a big boost to Dan Quinn and his accomplished coaching staff. Everyone is bought in. Everyone is working in unison to turn this struggling franchise around. Everyone is striving to earn their spot and is eager to impress.

It's the first step, but it's a positive one nonetheless. Things get more intense as the summer unfolds at Washington's mandatory minicamp and training camp. Based on initial perceptions, the Commanders are in good hands.

With that being said, here are three winners and two losers from Commanders OTAs in 2024.

Winner No. 1

Jamin Davis - Commanders LB

Nobody is benefitting more from the team's offseason moves than Jamin Davis. The Washington Commanders invested heavily in their linebacking options with Bobby Wagner and Frankie Luvu coming into the fold. Now, the former first-round pick can be deployed more in keeping with his outstanding athletic attributes.

Davis' explosiveness was on full display throughout organized team activities according to those in attendance. The Commanders are getting creative with his usage, even placing him as a 4-3 defensive end in obvious pass-rushing situations. This adds another intriguing dynamic worth monitoring throughout the summer heading into Week 1 at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The three-year college player at Kentucky is looking to firmly establish himself under the new coaching regime. Davis is also in the final year of his rookie contract after his option wasn't triggered by general manager Adam Peters. That didn't come as a shock, but all hope is not lost by any stretch of the imagination.

There is a long way to go. Fortunately for Davis, he's off to a tremendous start and maximizing every opportunity coming his way.
