What are the major positives to take from an eventful 2024 offseason so far for the Washington Commanders under Adam Peters?

Excitement was palpable among Washington Commanders fans heading into the offseason. The 2023 campaign was done a long time before their Week 18 game against the Dallas Cowboys concluded. Although disappointing, it allowed Josh Harris' ownership group to begin implementing their grand plans to take the franchise forward.

Adam Peters was the man trusted to spearhead this new era. The general manager came into the franchise with glowing credentials and looked more than ready for these increased responsibilities. The impression he's left couldn't have been more impressive up to now.

The Commanders look in a better spot right now than at any stage during the Ron Rivera years. If Peters can successfully navigate the 2024 NFL Draft, it'll do their chances of immediate progress under new head coach Dan Quinn the world of good.

Before then, we picked out four major positives from the Commanders' 2024 offseason so far.

Commanders prioritized overlooked positions

Ron Rivera's biggest flaw was arguably failing to prioritize key position groups. In particular, the previous head coach and decision-maker couldn't get things right at the linebacker spot or across the offensive line. It came as no surprise to see the Washington Commanders struggle as a result throughout his tenure.

This was a mistake Adam Peters wasn't going to make. The front-office leader targeted two prominent presences at the defensive second level - Bobby Wagner and Frankie Luvu - in addition to bolstering depth for good measure. He also brought in Tyler Biadasz and Nick Allegretti to fortify the offensive line interior.

There is still the small matter of finding a franchise left tackle to go alongside their rookie quarterback. However, this is a problem Peters can solve thanks to an exceptionally deep offensive line draft class in 2024.
