Commanders Snag A Blue-Chip Prospect In Mock Draft

No. 4: Washington Commanders — Olu Fashanu, OT, Penn State

If the Commanders stand firm with Sam Howell behind center, he needs protection up front. Olu Fashanu is a blue-chip prospect with already elite pass-blocking chops and an ever-improving technique in the run game.

No. 5: Chicago Bears — Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama

Montez Sweat and Dallas Turner chasing quarterbacks for four quarters? Chicago has a chance to boost its defense from respectable to well above average with the addition of an athletic pass-rushing marvel such as Turner.

No. 6: Chicago Bears (via LV) — Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Keeping Justin Fields means loading up the roster with talent — regardless of position. If one D.J. Moore is good, how about two of them? Malik Nabers mirrors Moore in several ways, but the LSU standout flexes an even higher upside — if you can imagine that.

No. 7: New York Jets — Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

The temptation to select a wide receiver here is enticing, but protecting the team’s 40-year-old signal-caller is the better idea. Joe Alt will have a decade-long career with his impressive length, polished technique, and mean streak as a blocker.

Jayden Daniels… You Are A New York Giant

No. 8: New York Giants — Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

The Giants, fueled by quarterback Tommy DeVito, have won enough games to miss out on Maye and Williams. But fret not; Jayden Daniels isn’t a bad consolation prize. The reigning Heisman winner can carve defenses up with his arm and legs.

No. 9: Tennessee Titans (via ATL) — J.C. Latham, OT, Alabama

Will Levis has shown enough for another year at the helm in 2024, so J.C. Latham should be headed to Nashville as we speak. The Alabama product could anchor in more efficiently in passing down sets, but his strength and length cover most technical issues on tape.
