The Washington Football Team made major moves this offseason but will need to hit on their 2021 NFL Draft picks to take that next step.
After signing Ryan Fitzpatrick, Curtis Samuels, and William Jackson III in free agency, the Washington Football Team seemingly made a commitment to continue to contend next season. With a revamped offense featuring Antonio Gibson, Terry McCluarin, Samuels, and Logan Thomas, and a stacked defense, the team has few holes to fill.
However, the areas they need to fill are vital for what could make or break the team in 2021 and beyond.

It would take the Washington Football Team an arm and a leg to trade up and select one of the top-five quarterbacks in this draft. If the team believes they can contend with Fitzpatrick at the helm, it might be smarter to build around him rather than bring in a rookie quarterback worth a king’s ransom.
With that in mind, the team should focus on protecting Fitzpatrick and allowing him to be the magician that he is on the field, except when he’s throwing awful interceptions.
Jenkins has been a name that has been trending up over the offseason and sees his name being called with the 19th overall pick. The former Oklahoma State Cowboy is a massive player (6-foot-6) and is extremely difficult to move.
Jenkins uses his frame and power well in pass protection, but he gets after it in run blocking as well moving very well for his size.
If Washington believes they are close with their current roster, then they should focus on protecting the current quarterback and drafting one later on.
