Washington finishes the second season of the Ron Rivera era with the same amount of wins as last year. Their 7-10 record earns them the 11th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. Coming into today’s game they had a range of 7th-13th depending on their game, and several other games around the league.
Washington has a lot of big question marks going into the 2022 season. Quarterback is the biggest one, and Ron Rivera has said they will consider all options. Taylor Heinicke will be evaluated after having a 15 1⁄2 game tryout this season. They will also look at free agents, veteran trades, and the draft to solve the never-ending problem under center.
Washington has picked a defensive player in the first round every year since 2017. If they miss on the QBs they want, would they go back to the defensive side, or take a player to help an offense that only scored more than 20 points seven times this season? The offensive line was hit hard with injuries and the team is expected to lose Brandon Scherff in free agency this year. They also have a need at WR unless they plan to depend on Curtis Samuel after his disastrous, injury-filled first year in Washington.
