Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint - Commanders WR

Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint played all four of his college seasons at Georgia. As we all know, the national championship-winning program has emerged into a prop pipeline in recent years with many players going on to take the league by storm.

The physically imposing wide receiver had his best year in 2023, putting up 34 receptions for 535 receiving yards and four touchdowns. The numbers don’t look great, but he is a talented player impacted overall by the incredibly deep strength of the wideout draft class this year.

Rosemy-Jacksaint's best traits are his ball skills. He's got assured hands and wasn't credited with a solitary drop over his final college campaign with the Bulldogs. He only had two drops on 105 targets in total. This was on top of having a 63.6 percent contested catch rate in 2023. This was enough for the Washington Commanders to bring him on board as an undrafted free agent with more promise than most.

The wideout was eager to maximize this opportunity. Rosemy-Jacksaint flashed during Washington's rookie minicamp, showing off an impressive one-handed catch during a scrimmage. This got everyone talking about what the Commanders might have in the unheralded prospect. There is a lot of hard work ahead, but this was the best way to get noticed immediately.

The main concern with Rosemy-Jacksaint is his explosiveness and speed. This can create problems with his separation, especially considering the competition in the pros gets much tougher. He also isn’t much of a threat once in open space. However, he is a talented contested catch receiver with quick feet and good route running.

I could see him being a solid No. 4 or No. 5 option for the Commanders if he shows enough during camp. Getting a foot on the ladder could enable Rosemy-Jacksaint to have a profitable career barring any misfortune on the health front.
