Some of you sound like you gave birth to these players.

Howell is the only guy who provides any glimmer of hope but the curse of Lil Danny Boy will take him down.

You're on the opposite end. Negative Nancy about everything right now.

Re: The 2022 Washington Commanders draft thread

Every fan base drinks the koolaid not just us. Obviously 2-3 guys from this class on average will actually help this team in the long run. The Question is which 2 or 3 will it be? Same for every team. The nfl isn’t the nba. Guys are so hard to predict as early producers for your team.

What I did like is they seemed to get a real ball hawk w/ ball skills at safety in Butler. 4.39 speed w/ ball skills is exactly what we need back there. Loved that one.

Also the big TE from Nevada. He needs to be developed but that could be a steal.

And the Howell pick. Thank god they finally drafted a freakin QB. He was one of the best QB's in the country in 19 and 20. Fell off a bit last year. Don't care. Let's see how he responds to NFL coaching. Great pick.
Solid points. You are right, we can't really give them a grade yet since none of these players have played an NFL down. That's why I don't buy into the rankings - at all. Every year you get countless prospects rated high that can't make the transition to the NFL, and countless prospects rated low that ball out.

All the comments about reaching for any of these guys is as premature as the comments about how good each pick was. We just won't know for a year or two.

On paper I'm pleased.

"Best special teams coverage player in the entire draft," NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah said following the choice. "A dominant gunner."

Can we please cut Apke now?

Percy Butler will be our starting FS no later than mid-season. Don't cut Apke because of Butler. Butler won't play much special teams for long.

What are you hearing that makes you think that? I was reading Keon’s analysis he called him raw which I interpreted as a project.

Just my own personal thought. I could be wrong.

Re: The 2022 Washington Commanders draft thread

I'm glad we drafted Howell, I like him. I thought he would be gone by 2nd round but then many of us thought a few other QBs would be drafted in 1st round lol..

Howell has a nice arm but he needs work on his techniques. For those who are interested, Kurt Warner made a couple of nice breakdown videos of Howell on YouTube. I think it will be a good test for our QB coach, whoever that is.

The plus about having Howell is that if things go south for Wentz, at least we can sort of look forward to him taking over (to see what he's got) as opposed to having to endure Heinecke again.

On a serious note, I'm glad they got a developmental QB, definitely thought it was a smart move.

I hope that the drafting of Howell breathes life into Dyami Brown. If Dyami can begin to show what he did at UNC, adding him to the McLaurin, Dotson, Samuel trio could be very potent.

I wanted Howell and they got him!! I feel he’s the best of the bunch and we got a steal. Hopefully won’t be long before he takes over Wentz spot.
