Should the Washington Commanders trade up and go all-in on Caleb Williams?

It’s a simple-enough question: Should the Washington Commanders trade up from No. 2 to No. 1 and take Caleb Williams in the 2024 NFL draft?

One obvious talking point connected to the Commanders and Williams is the presence of Kliff Kingsbury as Washington’s offensive coordinator.

Commanders Wire noted that Kingsbury’s presence should not be viewed as a sign that Washington is ready to make a move:

“Williams, the USC quarterback and presumed No. 1 overall pick, has a close relationship with Kingsbury. Once the news broke of Kingsbury’s hiring, Williams congratulated him on Instagram. Their relationship began after Kingsbury was fired by the Cardinals and took on the position of senior offensive analyst at USC for his good friend, Lincoln Riley.

“Here’s the problem with the Kingsbury/Williams theory: The Commanders have no control over whether they can pair Kingsbury with Williams. The Chicago Bears hold the No. 1 overall pick. They are likely to select Williams, leaving the Commanders to choose between quarterbacks Drake Maye (North Carolina) and Jayden Daniels (LSU) — both phenomenal prospects, too.”
