Dotson 2022 Draft pick

Commanders Move Back, Then Take WR Dotson At Sixteen Spot

The Washington Commanders went into Thursday night, having just six picks in the 2022 NFL Draft.

The Deal

Washington surrendered their 11th overall pick to New Orleans. In exchange, the Saints gave up the 16th overall pick, as well as picks in the 3rd (98th overall) and 4th (120th overall) rounds.

There is a series of events that can transpire and get Washington into the playoffs. And it’s not that far-fetched or ridiculous either.

Torrence Returns to Redskins Secondary

Leigh Torrence was signed by the Redskins yesterday, four years after the cornerback left the Redskins to go and ultimately win a Lombardi with the New Orleans Saints. While the move didn’t exactly set Redskins Nation on its ear, it is the third signing in two days that was made to shore up some depth, and that made good football sense.

Torrence won’t likely challenge DeAngelo Hall or Josh Wilson for playing time, but he is a capable back-up, can play nickel, and is an excellent special teams player. He is also a respected veteran in the locker room – something that this now youthful roster can use a little bit of. There are currently more than 35 players under contract with the Redskins, that have less than four years of NFL experience.

What Can You Say about the now 4-1 Redskins?

The Washington Redskins may not be the best team on paper, but they certainly look like one of the best in the league right now.

After falling very painfully to the Giants in week one, most had written this team off to a 5-11 record. Their chances versus the New Orleans Saints seemed pretty slim. Drew Brees was a much better QB than Eli Manning and had thrown for over 300 yards in week one. The Redskins defense would not be able to stop them, and Jason Campbell would not be any better than his efforts versus the Giants. The West Coast offense was just too hard to learn.
