Commanders draft Izavion Miller

  • Offensive Line | Auburn Tigers
  • Round No. 6 | No. 167 overall

As previously mentioned, the Washington Commanders have concerns surrounding their offensive tackle options heading into the campaign. Those in power seem happy enough with the options at their disposal. At the same time, it's not hard to see where problems could arise.

Cornelius Lucas and Andrew Wylie are slotted as the starting edge protection options. There's hope that Brandon Coleman can take on coaching quickly and establish himself at some stage during his rookie campaign. Aside from that, the cupboard is relatively bare aside from veteran Trent Scott.

Adding a development piece with the athletic scope to improve might be something the Commanders consider during the 2025 NFL Draft. Izavion Miller is a little rough around the edges, but his athleticism and length make him an intriguing option at this stage of the selection process.

Miller is a big-bodied offensive tackle who's incredibly difficult to get around. He's a mauler in the run game and held his own in pass protection more often than not last season. How much growth he displays with the Auburn Tigers next time around is something the Commanders and others around the NFL will be watching closely.

Commanders draft Joshua Farmer

  • Defensive Line | Florida State Seminoles
  • Round No. 6 | No. 173 overall

Not having a significant need at the defensive tackle position didn't stop the Commanders from drafting Johnny Newton at No. 36 overall in the 2024 NFL Draft. Expect general manager Adam Peters to do the same again if the right opportunity presents itself.

Jonathan Allen could be embarking on his final season with the Commanders unless he returns to the form of old. Daron Payne and Newton are long-term options. Phidarian Mathis and John Ridgeway III might also be surplus to requirements next spring looking at their respective career trajectories.

Joshua Farmer is an intriguing prospect. The versatile defensive lineman took his production up a notch at Florida State last season. His ability to be used in multiple alignments is something that should catch the attention of Dan Quinn and Joe Whitt Jr.

Farmer has the chance to propel his draft stock with another solid campaign. He looks like a great scheme fit with the right attitude to slot seamlessly into the Commanders' new way of thinking.
