Let’s See His Work
How He Would Fit
With the addition of William Jackson in free agency to Kendall Fuller and Jimmy Moreland, Washington has a very solid starting CB group. Danny Johnson and Cole Luke are current depth on the roster, with several CBs signed to reserve contracts, and likely at least one or two more to be added in free agency as additional depth. With its first round pick, Washington may well have an opportunity to take one of the best CBs in the draft, a Patrick Surtain or Caleb Farley, but I suspect they won’t, with greater needs elsewhere.
Mills would be an intriguing Day 3 pick who could assist on special teams for a year or two, and potentially be ready to jump into a starting role in a few years, as Fuller or Jackson near the end of their contracts.
