The Washington Commanders have made their second pick in the 2022 NFL draft and this time it’s for a defender. Washington stayed at their 47th overall pick and selected Alabama DL Phidarian Mathis. The defensive line went from a strength to a question mark this offseason when their depth was either released(Matt Ioannidis) or left in free agency(Tim Settle). There was also a report that the team didn’t plan on offering a contract extension to starter Daron Payne.
