Commanders NFL Draft Pick Predictions & Odds | 2022 Draft Team Needs & Futures Bets

It’s been quite an offseason for the Washington Commanders after a relatively dismal 7-10 finish in 2021. They’ll enter 2022 with a new team name, a new quarterback, and six new draft picks.

After parting ways with Ereck Flowers, Brandon Scherff, and Landon Collins, the Commanders head into the draft with quite a few needs on their roster. Let’s dig in and see who they might be targeting in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Commanders NFL Draft Picks 2022

  • Round 1, Pick 11 (11th Overall)
  • Round 2, Pick 15 (47th Overall, via IND)
  • Round 4, Pick 8 (113th Overall)
  • Round 6, Pick 10 (189th Overall)
  • Round 7, Pick 9 (230th Overall)
  • Round 7, Pick 19 (240th Overall, via PHI)

After the trade for Carson Wentz, the Commanders come into the draft with just six picks. With what’s billed to be a deep draft in the middle rounds, the gulf between 47 and 113 overall looms large. I wouldn’t be shocked if the Commanders trade down from 47 in an effort to even out their draft board.

Commanders Team Needs 2022

1. Offensive Line

With the departure of Scherff and Flowers, the Commanders have holes along their offensive line. They did bring in Andrew Norwell, but a blue-chip offensive lineman should be atop Washington’s wishlist.

2. Wide Receiver

Terry McLaurin is an absolute stud, but the Commanders lack any other real weapons in their passing attack. With this draft loaded with Day 2-type receivers, Washington should have plenty of options here.

3. Quarterback

Is Carson Wentz the answer at quarterback? Maybe for the short-term — and that’s a big maybe. But the addition of Wentz doesn’t answer any long-term questions, so quarterback remains a position of need for Washington.

Commanders May Also Consider Drafting: Cornerback, Safety, Linebacker

Commanders NFL Draft Bets 2022

Garrett Wilson: First Wide Receiver Selected (+110) at BetMGM

If you’re looking for a solid bet that involves the Commanders, take a look at Garrett Wilson as the first wide receiver selected. He’s fighting for that mantle with teammate Chris Olave, Drake London, Trey Burks, and Jameson Williams, but Wilson has the best all-around game of the bunch.

While there is a chance the Commanders snag a cornerback or one of the top offensive linemen if they drop to 11th, Wilson should theoretically be there for Washington when they’re on the clock in the first round.

There’s plenty of wide receiver depth in this draft class, but the Commanders will have the opportunity to snag their pick of the litter with Wilson.
