Commanders could draft Ben Sinnott

As previously mentioned, the Washington Commanders would be wise to examine a decent-looking pool of draft prospects emerging from the college ranks in 2024. Brock Bowers is the consensus best but will be long gone by Day 2. Fortunately for the organization, new general manager Adam Peters has the experience and previous credentials to find diamonds in the rough.

He was part of the brain trust that found George Kittle, who's arguably the league's most complete tight end. After a quality final college season at Kansas State and a standout display of athleticism at the NFL Scouting Combine, someone like Ben Sinnott might be higher than most on their shortlist of options to replace Logan Thomas.

There is a lot to like about Sinnott's ability as a pass-catcher. His athletic traits and ball skills are impressive for a man his size. He also tracks the ball like a savvy veteran despite just two years of college starting experience.

The prospect's route-running is precise and his body is well coordinated. No wasted movements feature in his game film. Once the player improves his blocking and concentration on occasion, someone is going to have a complete tight end on their hands.

Sinnott is expected to go somewhere on Day 2. If he's there when the Commanders go on the clock in Round No. 3, they could do far worse than look in his direction.
