Which way could the Washington Commanders go with their 2024 NFL Draft selections as general manager Adam Peters continues to lay the foundations?

It's been a masterclass of roster construction from Washington Commanders general manager Adam Peters right now. He had a plan in place that's being implemented with exceptional efficiency so far. This puts the franchise in a strong position heading into the all-important 2024 NFL Draft.

The Commanders are loaded with high-end selections. They have six picks in the first three rounds to find immediate starters and improve depth in positions of need. Much of the focus surrounds which quarterback will be the guy at No. 2 overall, which only adds to the level of fascination surrounding one of the most important drafts in franchise history.

Peters knows what he's doing. This might be his first draft as general manager, but the respected figure has been an integral part of successful front offices throughout his glittering career. Although there are no guarantees when it comes to the draft, this experience should stand the new man at the helm in great stead as he continues to stamp his mark on the organization.

We have just a few short weeks remaining until the selection process arrives. Speculation is rampant and the guessing games continue with very few leaks emerging from Peters' football operation. While everyone has their preferred direction, nobody knows for sure what the Commanders have up their sleeve.

Using the Pro Football Network simulator, we took a look at how the Commanders might approach their top-end choices as Peters continues to lay the foundation for a successful future in our three-round mock draft.
