What should the Washington Commanders do with their 2024 NFL Draft selections with just over weeks left until the event?

We are just over 14 days away from the start of the NFL Draft and a brand-new era of Washington Commanders football. This is one of the most crucial selection processes in recent team history as the organization is at a pivotal spot as Josh Harris' ownership group implements their ambitious plans for a sustainable future.

When looking at the Commanders' roster, it is clear that they need to improve plenty of areas on both sides of the ball. They have needs at cornerback and safety. In a division that features CeeDee Lamb, A.J. Brown, and DeVonta Smith, these are critical areas that must improve this upcoming season. Hopefully, head coach Dan Quinn will be able to put together an average unit on the backend of his defense.

However, the biggest need is at the quarterback position. This is the most important thing above all else. The Commanders have been searching for a franchise signal-caller since Kirk Cousins left town. Could this be the year fans get the guy who can lead them back to the promised land?

Only time will tell. The development and environment around Washington’s rookie quarterback will be significant factors in his progression in the NFL. One only has to look at the situations with C.J. Stroud and Bryce Young last season to see how pivotal this can be. In most cases, it's the difference between immediate success or failure.

Commanders fans should have some confidence in new general manager Adam Peters, who was a key part in building the San Fransico 49ers into the Super Bowl contender they are today. With six top 100 selections in the NFL Draft, the front-office leader will have a chance to improve the depth and overall talent of the roster right away.

Using the Pro Football Network simulator, I took a shot at yet another scenario as to what the Commanders could do in the first three rounds of the draft.
