Commanders can't ignore Javon Hargrave

The San Francisco 49ers have so much talent along their defensive line, that it's easy to forget about Javon Hargrave. He's the big man in the middle who doesn't get the plaudits given to Nick Bosa, Chase Young, and Arik Armstead.

Nonetheless, Hargrave can still cause havoc over center. He's proved as much by logging seven sacks this season.

Hargrave wins with leverage and the kind of quickness that's surprising for a 305-pounder. He's somebody who merits double teams, but the Washington Commanders have too many other star names to deal with in the trenches.

Offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy must reinforce the line whenever and however he can. Even if it means going with two or three tight ends or adding a sixth lineman to the mix.
