How are the Washington Commanders' draft picks looking over the next three years as Adam Peters gets set to put his grand roster plans into action?

A new era dawns for the Washington Commanders and general manager Adam Peters has one primary goal in mind. No longer will the franchise make erratic decisions for band-aid fixes. The front-office leader wants to build through the draft and supplement any remaining holes in free agency.

This is a more traditional method of success around the league. It's also something Peters had success with previously on the San Francisco 49ers. They found college gems through his first few drafts. This enabled them to key in on prominent free agents and even strike in the trade market when the right opportunities presented themselves.

It might take time for the Commanders to reach this point, but this offseason is a good place to start. They are loaded with assets - both in terms of draft capital and salary-cap space. They also look well set to implement Peters' newfound ethos in the coming years.

Here's how things stand with the Commanders' draft picks in 2024, 2025, and beyond:

Commanders 2024 draft picks

  • Round No. 1 (No. 2 overall)
  • Round No. 2 (No. 36 overall)
  • Round No. 2 (No. 40 overall) - From Chicago
  • Round No. 3 (No. 67 overall)
  • Round No. 3 (No. 100 overall) - From San Francisco
  • Round No. 4 (No. 103 overall)
  • Round No. 5 (No. 138 overall)
  • Round No. 6 (No. 181 overall)
  • Round No. 7 (No. 220 overall)

The extra selections come from Washington's decision to trade Montez Sweat and Chase Young before the 2023 deadline. That was a bitter pill to swallow that stung in the short term. However, it's provided Peters with plenty of ammunition to speed up the Commanders' upcoming rebuilding process.

Commanders 2025 draft picks

  • Round No. 1
  • Round No. 2
  • Round No. 3
  • Round No. 4
  • Round No. 5
  • Round No. 6

They also might have a conditional sixth-round selection coming from the Pittsburgh Steelers as part of their decision to trade veteran cornerback William Jackson III. Although no official confirmation of the deal's outcome has yet been revealed according to Pro Sports Transactions.

Commanders 2026 draft picks

  • Round No. 1
  • Round No. 2
  • Round No. 3
  • Round No. 4
  • Round No. 5
  • Round No. 6
  • Round No. 7

By this point, Peters will hopefully have a competitive roster in place. Judging by his efforts with the Niners on their rise to Super Bowl contention, it might see some selections become more expendable if veteran difference-makers become available via trade. But of course, a lot can and will happen between now and 2026.

Peters is under no illusions as to the size of the task awaiting him. The Commanders have been wallowing in misery for decades. Despite this, there is genuine hope for the future. More importantly, he believes fully in the ambitious project laid out by Josh Harris' ownership group.

This is the chance for Peters and his staff to wake a sleeping giant. Washington remains a big market team and one of the league's most storied franchises. Hitting with his first set of draft picks this spring would be a solid foundation for future prosperity.
