Commanders select Kiran Amegadjie

  • Offensive Tackle | Yale Bulldogs
  • Round No. 4 | No. 115 overall

It would be beneficial for the Washington Commanders to add more depth and competition through the draft. This is a rebuilding team and it would not hurt to see what their youth movement could provide in the coming seasons.

This is a league that doesn’t have the best depth up front on the offensive line. There are several factors for that, but it ultimately comes down to player development and the lack of sufficient options emanating from the collegiate ranks. This year is one of the best years in quite some time where teams can add depth to any spot on the protection.

Kiran Amedadjie is a high-ceiling FCS prospect who could become the first player from the Division One subdivision to be drafted as a result. He might be a raw player, but his movement skills and functional athleticism could be a tremendous fit within offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury’s blocking scheme.

The former Ivy Leaguer and Yale Bulldog is a massive human at 6-foot-6 and 325 pounds with 36-inch arms. The power and explosiveness he brings to the table are worth taking a chance on. Add on to his experience at guard and Amedadjie brings versatility to an offensive line that needs additional support behind the Commanders' projected starting unit.
