2023 Commanders Draft Selections

Who Have Washington Drafted Previously In The Draft Slots They Have In 2023?

There are just three days left until the 2023 NFL Draft! The Draft is always the most anticipated happening of the NFL offseason, and the number of pundits and experts that chime in on their prognostications only seems to double every year. It might be interesting to study and record what percentage of them do so with accuracy and success. Tough gig.

The Commanders have a total of eight selections in this year’s draft. They do not have their own third round pick in the draft as they traded it to the Indianapolis Colts last year in the Carson Wentz deal. They did however, pick up two compensatory picks – one in the third round for the loss of Brandon Scherff to the Jacksonville Jaguars, and one in the 6th round for the loss of Tim Settle to the Buffalo Bills.

Washington’s first 2023 pick will come in the number 16 slot. Funnily enough, that is where they drafted Jahan Dotson in 2022 after dealing out of the number 11 slot.

They also have the same 47 slot in the second round that they used to draft Phidarian Mathis last year. Mathis missed almost the entire season after tearing his MCL in game one.

Preliminary Look At The Washington Commanders 2023 NFL Draft

With only the Super Bowl remaining, 29 of the 31 draft slots for the NFL Draft have been determined.

Where will the Commanders select in 2023? As it stands, Washington will select sixteenth overall; however, anything can happen between now and that draft pick.

After all, the Commanders only have six picks. Compensatory Picks might push that number to eight, but they have a lot of holes to fill.

Kerrigan Signs One Day Contract To Retire With Washington

The once prodigal son came home. Ryan Kerrigan signed a one-day contract with Washington, to announce his retirement from professional football. Despite spending last season with the division rival Philadelphia Eagles, Kerrigan wanted to close out his career with the team that originally drafted him in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Washington took the “Heartbreak Kid” with the 16th overall pick out of Purdue. He made an impact from the very start. There was something tangibly different about him. A quiet confidence. A non-stop motor.

He would start every single game in his first eight seasons, and he would play for Washington for ten years. He was named to four Pro Bowls, and finished behind only Dexter Manley in career sacks (95.5). He registered a sack total in double digits four different times.

Washington Add Names To Selection Process For 90 Greatest

When Washington announced earlier this week that they had a new patch to commemorate the franchise’s 90th season, they also released a list of names that fans would be able to choose from, to have a new 90 Greatest list.

Originally in 2002, Washington came up with 70 players on the 70th Anniversary, that comprised the first Greatest list. In 2012, they added 10 more players to commemorate the 80th Anniversary.

Of course it stands to reason that in 2022, 10 players will again be added to the annuls of Washington history, and take their place on the 90 Greatest.

Wallpaper Wednesday: Eagles Versus Skins – Kerrigan

Despite only being week seven, this is the second time that the Redskins have played the Eagles already this year, with Philly winning on opening day. Losing this game would mean that the Eagles have the critical first tie breaker of head-to-head record.

Wallpaper Wednesday: Capital Punishment

Despite losing a tough one to the Chiefs on Monday Night, the Redskins have seen a marked improvement on the defensive side of the ball under new Defensive Coordinator Greg Manusky. Before the injuries piled up against Kansas City, Washington’s defense was playing with the same tenacity that it did against the Raiders.

It isn’t even tenacity, there’s an actual air of nastiness to it.

Teams are going to start fearing a Capital Punishment…
