Which way could the Washington Commanders go with their 2024 draft selections ahead of the all-important NFL Scouting Combine?

Adam Peters and Dan Quinn will be running the rule over college hopefuls during the annual NFL Scouting Combine. The Washington Commanders have plenty of high-end capital to utilize as part of their grand plans for progression. Much will depend on how they spend the league's most available salary-cap space in free agency, but building through the draft is also high on their list of targets.

The Commanders have plenty of holes to fill and a lot of hard work ahead. Washington was among the league's worst teams last season. Most went through the motions under a lame-duck head coach whose fate was sealed long before the campaign concluded. Despite the doom and gloom that's enveloped the organization over the last two decades, there is now legitimate hope for the future.

Hitting on their draft picks this spring would be a fantastic platform from which to build. Peters is the right man for the job based on his sterling efforts with the San Francisco 49ers. Expecting miracles right away is unrealistic, but there's also a chance this huge project can bear fruit sooner than most anticipate.

All the chatter centers on what the Commanders will do from No. 2 overall, but there are eight other selections at their disposal. Finding gems lower down the pecking order is equally important. Something Peters helped with frequently en route to securing a well-deserved promotion.
