Which way could the Washington Commanders go with their 2024 NFL Draft picks with plenty of remaining needs following a flurry of free-agent activity?

Nobody expected the Washington Commanders to let free agency pass without significantly strengthening their roster. They were armed with the league's most salary-cap space and a new regime looking to make the NFL start looking at this once-proud organization differently. Adam Peters is making every move with calculated intent while also avoiding any long-term financial complications.

This puts the Commanders in a strong position heading into the 2024 NFL Draft. There's a chance further additions arrive before the selection process gets here - something that would provide Peters with extra freedom to plug in the missing pieces before the campaign.

Peters has always stated a desire to build through the draft and supplement in free agency. The substantial holes across the roster and the hard reset adopted by those in power meant drastic measures were needed to provide hope of an immediate turnaround. Anything less would have caused unnecessary complications.

The Commanders have a bounty of draft picks that start at No. 2 overall. It's no secret what the first-round plan is. After that, things are less certain. But make no mistake, this could shape the future of the franchise for good or bad.

Using the Pro Football Network simulator, we took a look at which way the Commanders plan to go with their selections in our latest seven-round 2024 NFL mock draft.
