Which Washington Cmmanders players must impose themselves throughout the team's upcoming OTAs ahead of a pivotal 2023 campaign?

Reporters are currently attending the NFL spring owners' meetings to get a firmer grasp on how things are unfolding regarding the Washington Commanders' sale. For the players and coaching staff, it's time to focus on football once again at long last.

After one of the more dramatic offseasons in recent memory, the Commanders take the field for their first official OTA session of the summer (Tuesday). This is a chance for rookies and veterans to join forces and put the right foundations in place for what will hopefully become a profitable campaign for the franchise.

The pressure is only going to grow once Josh Harris' group takes over from Dan Snyder. Ron Rivera knows that all too well, but the onus is also on players young and old to assist the head coach in whatever way possible for future job preservation.

With this in mind, here are four Commanders players that must impose themselves at OTAs in 2023.

Saahdiq Charles - Commanders OL

It appears as if the Washington Commanders coaching staff might be higher on Saahdiq Charles than most fans. The interior offensive lineman was spotted working with the starting unit during informal workouts earlier this offseason, which indicates he might get a legitimate chance to become a Day 1 starter in 2023 throughout the preparation period.

This sounds promising, but Charles has flattered to deceive before. Therefore, placing too much faith in the former fourth-round selection until he firmly proves his worth as a consistent blocker would be foolish with so much at stake for the Commanders next season.
