The WFT is set to unveil its new name, logo, and likeness on February 2nd, and while that may energize a few fans, many are tired of the same-ol, same-ol with this franchise. For those frustrated fans, Groundhog day is the perfect day for this franchise of persistent up-and-downs to unveil its next distraction from the never-ending mess it represents. For both of those sets of fans, however, there is reason to be optimistic.

Many have asserted that the end of last year's season came with more promise, but I disagree. Yes, the 2020 WFT made the playoffs and put up a fight against the eventual Super Bowl Champions, but that team had a shocking lack of depth and the defense benefitted from one of the worst slates of opposing quarterbacks in the history of the league. This year was uglier on the field, but with the unbelievable amount of injuries, COVID posities, and other tragedies that befell this roster, it was amazing to see a competitive team (almost) every week this season. It's clear that Ron Rivera still has a hold on this team, and as long as his leadership develops leaders in the locker room, this franchise will always have hope.

Clearly, the only thing that matters this offseason is finding a quarterback. The front office has put together an above-average set of weapons and paired it with an above-average offensive line (even when 2nd and 3rd stringers are playing). Assuming Curtis Samuel returns next year, this offense truly is ready for a QB to be dropped in. In the offseason, I believe the focus will be on the following positions, in order of importance; QB, MLB, CB, OG, DE depth. I also wouldn't be surprised to see a WR/TE weapon be added to finish the skill-position assembly.

Expect an exciting ride between now and whenever the Washington Commanders land their first starting QB!

WASHINGTON HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
