It sure sounds like the Commanders are drafting a QB at No. 2 overall

Did one of the Washington Commanders brass tip off what the team is going to do with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2024 NFL draft? It sure seems that way.

Commanders senior advisor Doug Williams, a former starting QB for the franchise, might have let the cat out of the bag before the bag was even finished. In an interview on the NFL Network, Williams appeared to give away the Commanders’ plan to take a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick.

“The good part about it is we’re sitting in a great position because we got three great quarterbacks that are out there,” Williams said. “One, two and three.”

Williams quickly tried to veer back on course, talking about the potential for the Commanders to select an offensive tackle or a defensive pass rusher. After some playful pushback from hosts Andrew Siciliano and Bucky Brooks, Williams acknowledged,

“Nine out of 10, there’s a good chance that we might pick one of the quarterbacks.”

It’s generally a popular notion that the Commanders are looking to upgrade from Sam Howell, who led the NFL in both INTs (21) and sacks (65) in 2023 while also throwing the most passes (612). Williams sounds like he’s validating the speculation.

The whole exchange is available at Siciliano’s post on X (formerly Twitter).

Smokescreen? Slip of the tongue? You be the judge…
