WFT’s training camp opens in less than a month, so what CBSSports.com says about their talent is impressive:
Here’s another team that has a quarterback question which puts their 2021 ceiling into question, but everything else on roster looks great.
Ryan Fitzpatrick has a talented running back in Antonio Gibson to work with and an improved offensive line to protect him.
I’m not going to claim Washington’s offensive line is elite, but they have a legitimate left tackle in Charles Leno Jr. now, and Cornelius Lucas on the right side to fill in for Morgan Moses.
As for Fitzpatrick’s weapons, Washington spent time upgrading that core as well. Terry McLaurin is a star, but he now has a legitimate No. 2 to work with in another Ohio State player, Curtis Samuel (above). Washington also picked up a veteran slot receiver in Adam Humphries and have an athletic tight end coming off of a career year in Logan Thomas.
The defense is the true strength of this club, however, as they carried this team to the postseason in 2020 and finished second in yards allowed, fourth in points allowed and third in DVOA. All they did was get better this offseason by drafting linebacker Jamin Davis and signing cornerback William Jackson III. They may have the best defense in the league this year.
