The first round of the 2021 NFL draft is in the books, and the Washington Football Team selected Kentucky LB Jamin Davis with the 19th overall pick. There are still a lot of good players that will be available tonight in Round 2 & 3. Washington has a lot of areas they would probably like to address early, but the right players have to be there.

The most popular positions for Day 2 from the mocks I’ve assembled below is OL, QB, and WR. There are a few TEs in the mix, and several DBs getting projected for Washington’s defense. Washington has 7 picks left over the next two days, and there could be some trade activity as well today.

Who do you want Washington to draft tonight?

Ben Standig

51. Terrace Marshall, WR, LSU

The only reason Marshall’s still available here is the medical concern. The talent is likely too much for Washington to pass on.

74. Davis Mills, QB, Stanford

82. Tommy Tremble, TE, Notre Dame

CBS Sports(Trapasso)

51. Jackson Carman, OL, Clemson

The Football Team likes bigger exterior blockers and that’s precisely what Carman is.

74. Ben Cleveland, OL, Georgia

Cleveland is a mountain of man who moves people on the interior.

82. Kyle Trask, QB, Florida

Trask is a smart value pick here for the Football Team that has improved its roster a great deal over the past two years.

Pro Football Network(Cummings)

51. Davis Mills, QB, Stanford

Washington is one of the teams that’s been tied to Davis Mills all offseason. Two of the other primary contenders for Mills were the Chicago Bears and the New England Patriots. They both picked quarterbacks in Round 1, thus clearing the way for Mills to potentially become a member of the Washington Football Team.

Mills needs definite refinement. Nevertheless, he has the pocket athleticism and the arm talent to mold, and he’ll be entering an excellent situation with Ryan Fitzpatrick above him.

74. Dillon Radunz, OT, NDSU

82. Jamar Johnson, S, Indiana

Sporting News(Iyer)

51. Kyle Trask, QB, Florida

Washington has Ryan Fitzpatrick as a bridge but can’t expect to have a real long-term solution between Kyle Allen and Taylor Heinicke. Trask’s arm and accurate pocket passing is a good fit for Scott Turner’s offense.

74. Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC

Washington needs a strong, tough slot presence to complement speedsters Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel and play well off tight end Logan Thomas.

82. Richie Grant, S, UCF

Washington has Kamren Curl making plays on the back end and here’s a good complement to his skill set and that of first-round linebacker Jamin Davis.

Sports Illustrated(Gramling/Orr)

51. Elijah Molden, DB, Washington

Molden might not have the size and speed to hold up as a boundary receiver, but he’s a quality player inside who’s instincts and football character will win over a coaching staff.

74. Creed Humphrey, C, Oklahoma

Chase Roullier had another solid season last year but Rivera wants to continue replenishing the depth of the offensive interior. This team will be all about ball control and turning the game over to their immensely talented defense in 2021.

82. Washington: Kyle Trask, QB, Florida

It’s a rule that you cannot have Ryan Fitzpatrick without a developmental QB project behind him. Washington is committed to the Fitzpatrick experience this year, but Trask is another player that nearly worked his way into the first-round conversation this year.

College Footbal News(Fiutak)

51. Sam Cosmi, OT, Texas

The O line didn’t get any first round help with the defense landing Kentucky LB Jamin Davis. The versatility of Cosmi matters – he’ll start out at guard but will test out at tackle.

74. Amen Ogbongbemiga, LB Oklahoma State

82. Trey Smith, OL, Tennessee

Fantasy Pros(Tagliere)

51. Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame

Passing on offensive tackle in the first round was bold, but they’re unable to do it again. They need to address the offensive line.

74. Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State

82. Kyle Trask, QB, Florida

Riggo’s Rag(Camenker)

51. Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State. With Eichenberg off the board, Radunz will draw the attention of Washington here. He may not be as familiar as some of the other tackles out there, but Radunz was excellent at the Senior Bowl and impressed talent evaluators with his performance.

Radunz isn’t a big-time athlete, but he is strong, tough, and should have a chance to succeed on either the left or right side of the line. Ron Rivera and Marty Hurney have targeted non-Power 5 offensive linemen about as often as they’ve targeted Power 5 linemen, so Radunz could pique their interest if some of the other top options are off the board.

74. Davis Mills, QB, Stanford. Speaking of upside picks, that’s exactly what Mills is. The Stanford QB only started 14 games in college but he has great mobility and arm talent. He could be a diamond in the rough if properly developed, and he was once the No. 1 overall QB recruit in the nation.

Washington needs some sort of upside at the quarterback position. Kyle Allen and Taylor Heinicke have a little, but Ryan Fitzpatrick is just a bridge. Mills could battle with Allen and Heinicke for roles on the depth chart and see what happens. Maybe Ken Zampese can get the most out of Mills and turn him into a quality NFL QB.

Either way, the Washington Football Team likes Mills, so they will be in play for him. It’s just a matter of when he might be selected.

82. Hunter Long, TE, Boston College. The Washington Football Team probably would’ve liked to land either of the safeties that just flew off the board, but they’ll have to settle for a consolation prize of Hunter Long.

Long is one of the better-rounded tight ends in this class. He can block. He can catch. He’s not a big-time separator, but the 6-foot-5 TE is able to make contested catches and generate just enough space to get by.

Long would be a nice complement to Logan Thomas and would allow the team to run two-tight-end sets more often. He would also help out as a blocker which would be nice for the team.

The Athletic(Brugler)

51. Davis Mills, QB, Stanford

74. Stone Forsythe, OT, Florida

82. Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami (Fla.)

Draft Wire(Easterling)

51. Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas

74. Kellen Mond, QB, Texas A&M

82. Nico Collins, WR, Michigan

Bleacher Report(Kay)

51. Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas

74. Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama

82. Ifeatu Melifonwu, CB, Syracuse

Bleeding Green Nation(Natan)

51. Ifeatu Melifonwu, CB, Syracuse

74. Davis Mills, QB, Stanford

82. Hunter Long, TE, Boston College

51. Teven Jenkins, Oklahoma State offensive tackle

Washington must address the offensive line on Friday with guard Brandon Scherff on the franchise tag again. Tackle is a more immediate need, and Day 2 should see plenty come off the board.

Bleacher Report(Tansey)

51. Tutu Atwell, WR, Louisville

51. Sam Cosmi, OT, Texas

Pro Football Focus(Ideal targets for every team)

Kyle Trask, QB, Florida

Ryan Fitzpatrick gives this offense a better chance in 2021 than any of the quarterbacks Washington had to work with last season. Fitzpatrick is also 38 years old, and there is no viable young, alternative at the quarterback position currently on the roster.

Trask took a big leap forward this past season for Florida. Even with a disappointing performance in the Gators’ bowl game against Oklahoma, Trask improved his PFF grade from 69.9 in 2019 to 92.2 in 2020. He lacks the high-end traits that would have included him in the first-round conversation, but there’s a chance Trask could continue to improve in the NFL considering these last two seasons were his first two years as a starter, including high school.
