ESPN’s John Keim reports the Commanders have made it clear they believe in second-year QB Sam Howell to take over the starting job in 2023.
“Many believe that taking a passer on Day 1 is off the table,” according to Keim.
It’s possible a quarterback like Tennessee’s Hendon Hooker could be an option for Washington if he’s available on Day 2, but the consensus is the Commanders are leaning toward building around Howell with their draft.
ESPN’s Jordan Reid believes Washington may be targeting Ohio State OT Dawand Jones in the first round.
