What should the Washington Commanders do with their 2024 NFL Draft selections as the weeks wind down to the high-profile event?

It is officially draft month, Washington Commanders fans. We are just weeks away from discovering who general manager Adam Peters and head coach Dan Quinn believe is the potential franchise quarterback after their thorough evaluations throughout the process.

These are anxious yet exciting times. You’re looking at a team with some building blocks on both sides of the ball such as wide receiver Terry McLaurin, together with defensive linemen Daron Payne and Jonathan Allen. But more is needed within a highly competitive NFC East.

Adding a quarterback to the mix would be a significant step forward for a franchise that wants to secure playoff football again and eventually, compete for the Vince Lombardi Trophy. That might seem like a long way off right now, but a solid draft in 2024 will go a long way to speeding up this ambitious plan.

While it is widely regarded that the team will draft a quarterback at No. 2 overall, the biggest question lies in how aggressive Peters is on draft night. If a top offensive tackle falls down the order, could this team sacrifice substantial capital to get their blindside protector of the future?

It is certainly possible in an event full of surprises and unpredictability. Using the Pro Football Network simulator, we dove into another unique scenario that puts Washington in a better place than a season ago in our latest seven-round mock draft.
