Round 5, Pick 150: Carter Warren, OT, Pittsburgh
Tackle depth might be the last thing on the mind of the Washington Commanders, but if Carter Warrens is available this late, it’s worth it. Warren has taken all but 11 snaps at left tackle in his career, but can play the other side in a pinch, as he did against Tennessee in 2021. The quicks, set variance, and strong footwork to mirror will be a delight for any team to add on day three of the draft.
Round 6, Pick 193: Mo Ibrahim, RB, Minnesota
We’ve talked about the running back room in Washington, and it needs some sort of upgrade. Mo Ibrahim‘s fourth seasons was cut short by an Achilles injury, and he somehow came out one year later and delivered a 1,665-yard season. That isn’t normal. Ibrahim runs tough, is elusive in a phone booth, and has some burst to rip off chunk runs. He had 10 100-yard games in 2022 and two games above 200 yards.
Round 6, Pick 215: Jason Taylor II, SAF, Oklahoma State
A potential steal in round six for the Washington Commanders, Jason Taylor II is an aggressive safety. Taylor has strong football instincts and is great at reading the quarterback’s eyes. He’s quick to close on the ball and can convert opportunities into turnovers. Taylor also isn’t afraid to come up to help in the run game with great stopping power.
Round 7, Pick 233: Brayden Willis, TE, Oklahoma
Why not add another target in the passing game with the final pick in this Commanders mock draft? Brayden Willis is a true H-back with the ability to play the fullback role but also take on duties as a receiving tight end. The tight end room in Washington doesn’t have that star just yet, but Willis can fill a role that currently isn’t filled.
