It’s officially NFL draft season for Washington Football Team fans. Washington enters another November with a 2-5 record and dim playoff hopes. Sure, Washington was in a similar position last season, but the Dallas Cowboys are a different team in 2021.

It feels like every season, Washington is out of the playoff picture by the beginning of November, and fans are clamoring over the best quarterbacks in college football.

If the 2021 NFL season ended today, the Washington Football Team would pick No. 9 overall in the 2022 NFL draft.

That’s certainly high enough for Washington to land one of the draft’s projected top passers. However, there’s a lot of conjecture about the lack of high-end quarterback talent that will be available in the 2022 draft.

Washington will almost certainly be aggressive in the offseason as it pursues a quarterback. While some believe Washington will pursue a veteran, the team will study every available option in its latest attempt to find a legitimate starting quarterback.

Here is a look at the current draft order for the 2022 NFL draft, if the season ended today, per Tankathon.

1. Detroit Lions (0-7)
2. Philadelphia Eagles (via Dolphins, 1-6)
3. Houston Texans (1-6)
4. New York Jets (1-5)
5. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-5)
6. Philadelphia Eagles (2-5)
7. New York Giants (2-5)
8. New York Jets (via Seahawks, 2-5)
9. Washington Football Team (2-5)
10. Miami Dolphins (via 49ers, 2-4)
11. New England Patriots (3-4)
12. Denver Broncos (3-4)
13. Philadelphia Eagles (via Colts, 3-4)
14. Carolina Panthers (3-4)
15. New York Giants (via Bears 3-4)

Washington’s division rival, Philadelphia, would own three of the top 15 picks if the season ended today, thanks to trades with the Dolphins and Colts in the offseason. The Giants would own two of the top 15 picks.
