Washington Football Team Mock Draft Roundup 7.0


Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Washington Football Team Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Washington Football Team from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for Washington:

EDSFootball - Donahue (3/23)

19. Alijah Vera-Tucker, IOL, USC

If Mac Jones is here, I would expect him to be the pick or Washington may even try to move up to try to obtain him since they surprisingly don't have a ton of holes on their team outside of QB. Instead, they go with the next best tackle/guard combo in the draft. Listed at the same exact size as Slater, Vera-Tucker would probably be best utilized at guard but does have experience at both positions.

NFL.com - Brooks (3/23)

19. DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama

The silky-smooth pass catcher would complete a WR corps that already features speed and explosiveness with Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel in place.

The Athletic - Beat Writers (3/23)

19. Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB, Notre Dame

Washington lost starting linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis in free agency. Looking around the market, the best and most cost-effective route to replacing him is drafting another linebacker. Owusu-Koramoah, the reigning Butkus Award winner as college football's top linebacker and ACC Defensive Player of the Year, has an enticing blend of speed that allows him to keep up with his man in coverage or blitz the quarterback. At Notre Dame, he was asked to cover the slot and play nickel and performed well whether shadowing a receiver or tight end, and that's where Washington's linebacking corps often saw lapses last season. He offers the kind of versatility that coach Ron Rivera and his staff covet, and it doesn't hurt that he'll have a chance to get better by learning under a head coach and defensive coordinator (Jack Del Rio) who both excelled playing and coaching the linebacker position. -- Rhiannon Walker

ESPN - Kiper (3/22)

19. Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech

Washington is out of the range for the top quarterbacks in this class, so this pick is tough to predict. I do like what coach Ron Rivera and new general manager Martin Mayhew have done in free agency, adding a top cornerback in William Jackson III, an underutilized wideout in Curtis Samuel and a perfectly capable stopgap quarterback in Ryan Fitzpatrick. There's still a gaping hole at left tackle, though, and Darrisaw could fill it. He had a tremendous 2020 season, and he is a stellar all-around blocker.

CBS Sports - Wilson (3/22)

19. Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech

Even after signing Ryan Fitzpatrick, the Football Team obviously needs a long-term answer at QB, but after winning the division and making the playoffs they'll likely have to trade up to get one. For now they're staying put upgrading the O-line with one one the most athletic linemen in this class.

PFF - Renner (3/22)

19. Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU

A curveball? Moehrig is that good, and the answer to the Football Team's linebacker woes may very well be on the roster. Moehrig's addition could allow Landon Collins to stay in the box full-time, where he's a much more natural fit.
