Round 5 Pick 137: Roger Rosengarten, OT, Washington

The Commanders address their offensive line position for the third time in the NFL Draft. While this may seem like a lot of pick at one position this is one of Washington’s biggest weaknesses and a spot they have very little depth at.

Washington Huskies offensive tackle Roger Rosengarten was one of the main reasons why Washington's offensive line won the Joe Moore Award this year. He did not give up a sack during the regular season and only gave up two quarterback hits. He also routinely graded out as one of the better run blockers in college football. One more positive with him is the athletic offensive lineman could play either guard or tackle for the Commanders.

Round 6 Pick 180: Jared Wiley, TE, TCU

The tight end position is a need that will likely need more than just a sixth-round pick, as the team could start fresh at this position next year. Current starter Logan Thomas will likely be cut and even if he returns he didn’t threaten many defenses averaging just 9 yards a catch. Behind Thomas, the team didn’t have a single tight end catch more than 20 passes last season.

In TCU tight end Jared Wiley the team gets an absolute steal. I have a second-round grade on Wiley and have him rated as the third-best tight end in the 2024 NFL Draft, yet he is widely considered more of a sixth or seventh-round draft pick. What I love about Wiley is his all-around game. As a receiver, Wiley has surprising speed for a 6-foot-7 260-260-pound tight end. When it comes to blocking Wiley plays with good aggression and has the power to lineup as an in-line tight end.
