Washington Commanders 2024 Seven Round Mock Draft

By Peter Andrisani (The Mock Draft Guy)

The Washington Commanders are essentially starting fresh in 2024: a new owner, a new general Manager, and a new Head coach and coaching staff. Armed with six picks inside the top 100, the Commanders new front office has a chance to knock this fresh start out of the park. So, I decided to take a crack at it. Let’s take a look at my Seven Round 2024 Commanders Mock Draft. 

#2- Caleb Williams (QB) USC

Caleb Williams is one of the most polarizing personalities we’ve seen from a collegiate player in quite some time. Whether you love him or hate him, you can’t deny he has some serious game-changing talent. Nothing against Sam Howell, as I do think he has a place on an NFL Roster. With a new regime with no ties to Howell, they most certainly will bring in their Franchise-caliber player. Williams might just be the best player in the draft when it’s all done and dusted. 

#36- Tyler Guyton (OT) Oklahoma

The Commanders O-Line needs almost a full revamp. They gave up 65 sacks last season, tied for second in the NFL. While they have some promising pieces in Sam Cosmi and Ricky Stromberg, they need help. Guyton is unrefined but is extremely athletic and has tremendous length. He’s 6’7” and weighs a lean, 328 Pounds. While a High-ceiling, unrefined prospect might not be everyone’s cup of tea, I’m banking off of the massive potential here with Guyton. 

#40- J.T. Tuimoloau (EDGE) Ohio State

The Commanders are razor-thin at the defensive end position. Tuimoloau is the definition of a game wrecker. He’s one of my favorite traditional 4-3 edge rushers in the entire class. JTT is 6’4” and 275 pounds, but plays much quicker, and stronger. He’s not going to blow you away with his speed, but he’s a great run defender who can consistently collapse the pocket. Statistically, he might be underwhelming, but he affects almost every play. 

#67- Max Melton (CB) Rutgers

My infatuation with Max Melton is well documented. Not many corners can go toe to toe with Marvin Harrison Jr. and hold their own. Melton is a long, rangy 6’1” 190 pound boundary corner, who flashed some excellent ball skills. With Kendall Fuller being a free agent, and probably commanding more money than the new Front Office is willing to spend, Melton would be a natural replacement in the secondary. 

#96- Jaheim Bell (TE) Florida State

Jaheim Bell is not your tradition Tight End. He’s not going to do too much for you in terms of blocking, or support in the run game. What he will do for you is provide an extremely athletic, big-bodied target in the middle of the field and up the seam for your quarterback. Bell is built like a big " slot receiver 6’4” and 235 pounds. Logan Thomas isn’t a bad option, but he’s injury-prone, over 30, and out of a contract after the 2024 season. It’s time to get younger and faster at the position.

#98- Zak Zinter (OL) Michigan

Let me make this clear, the only reason Zinter falls this far is due to his untimely Tibia/Fibula break against Ohio State, The dude can ball. Zinter is a tremendous athlete and brings that type of versatility that could go a long way for this Commanders Offensive Line. Zinter has played his share of games at Tackle, and Guard. He would also be one of the more physically imposing guards in the NFL, at 6’5’ 330 Pounds. It might be a risk, but it’s one I’m willing to take for the upside. 

#132- Malik Washington (WR) Virginia

Washington transferred from a run-oriented offense at Northwestern to Virginia in 2023, and exploded for 110 catches, for 1426 yards, and 9 touchdowns. The 5’9 185 Pound Washington will never blow you away with his size or overall athleticism, but he will win you over with his short area quickness, route running ability, and his run-after-the-catch ability. For his size, Washington is a force in the open field, breaking tackles with elusiveness, and physicality. Washington would be a fine replacement for Curtis Samuel. 

#163- Tyrice Knight (LB) UTEP

This might be a little late for some fans to take a linebacker. This class is a little weak in the area, and Linebacker is a position I’m always comfortable drafting on Day Three. Think about how many Day Two & Three Linebackers are in the NFL right now. Knight might be SLIGHTLY undersized at 6’2” and 235 pounds, but he’s a sound coverage linebacker and a sure tackler. Knight doesn’t do anything elite, but he does everything well. 

#194- Xavier Thomas (EDGE) Clemson

Thomas is one of the smallest edge defenders in the entire draft class, standing just 6’2” and weighing 245 pounds. Thomas’ game is based on his unreal speed and athletic ability. Defensive Ends aren’t supposed to run in the 4.4’s, but that’s exactly what Thomas can do. At such a thin position for the Commanders, I’m willing to take a flier on someone who could be a genuinely threatening Edge Rusher.
