The Washington Commanders are gaining rave reviews for their first NFL Draft with Adam Peters leading the football operation. It was a draft board manipulation masterclass from the new general manager, who put his previous experience to good use and further cemented the foundations en route to a potentially brighter future.

Peters came into the draft with clear objectives in mind and didn't deviate. This was centered on taking the best prospects available and finding those with the athletic intangibles required to develop under improved coaching methods. In those senses, it was mission accomplished.

This raises expectations about what the Commanders' future could look like with Peters at the helm. They have a long-term plan in place for future success. It won't happen overnight and there are still holes to fill, but one cannot look at this offseason so far with anything other than positivity attached.

For some, it's the opposite. With this in mind, here are four Commanders players who are not safe after the 2024 NFL Draft.

Braeden Daniels - Commanders OL

The Washington Commanders drafted one offensive lineman during the 2024 NFL Draft. This came as a surprise when one considers the desperate need for reinforcements - especially on the edge. But those in power have enough financial resources to go back into the veteran pool if they feel like more is needed.

Brandon Coleman was an intriguing third-round selection after Adam Peters couldn't find a willing trade partner to move back into the first round for one of the premier offensive tackles. While some analysts believe his lack of length indicates he'll be better suited on the interior, the Commanders will give him every chance to carve out a blindside role for himself.

Coleman is athletically gifted but seems like a work in progress. However, this does nothing to improve Braeden Daniels' chances of carving out a prominent role for himself.

The former fourth-round selection struggled to make an impression during his first offseason with the team. Speculation rose about whether he would make the 53-man roster before Daniels was placed on season-ending injured reserve. With a new regime coming into the building and Coleman's upside, the Utah product has his work cut out in no uncertain terms.
