Washington Football Team 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup, 4.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Washington Football Team Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Washington Football Team from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for Washington:

EDSFootball - Kevin Hanson (1/15)

19. Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech

Darrisaw, a three-year starter, has continued to improve each season. His athleticism and length will allow him to handle NFL-caliber edge rushers and he's been dominant as a run blocker as well.

San Diego Union Tribune - Eddie Brown (1/13)

19. Kyle Trask, QB, Florida

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say Taylor Heinicke isn't the quarterback of the future here. Trask has legit pocket presence and a surprising touch for such a strong arm. He had a horrible Cotton Bowl against Oklahoma, but that doesn't erase a Heisman-worthy season (he finished fourth). He had 43 touchdown passes (first in the nation) against only eight interceptions, 4,283 passing yards (second in the nation) and a QBR of 88.3 (sixth in the nation).

CBS Sports - Chris Trapasso (1/13)

19. Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC

The Washington Football Team will see a lot of Terry McLaurin in St. Brown. They'll formulate a fun duo that can routinely get open. I think Washington goes the free-agent or trade route at quarterback.

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (1/12)

19. Alijah Vera-Tucker, IOL, USC

Although Cornelius Lucas played above expectations this season, left tackle is a position Washington will consider upgrading. Vera-Tucker was graded as a second-round guard before the season, but he moved to left tackle and played at a high level, boosting his draft grade.

The Draft Network - Joe Marino (1/7)

19. Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan

Mayfield is a toolsy blocker that brings an exciting blend of length, size, movement skills, and power to the table. Washington never truly replaced Trent Williams and is in need of an answer at tackle. While the offense is in need of weapons, football games are still won up front, so taking this chance to improve the trenches makes sense.

ESPN - Todd McShay (1/7)

19. Trey Lance, QB, North Dakota State

Here we are again, two years after Washington selected Dwayne Haskins in the first round. It didn't work out. And while Alex Smith has completed an inspiring comeback and led Washington to the playoffs, he isn't the future of this team. Smith averaged just 5 air yards per attempt this season. Coach Ron Rivera needs to be thinking about the direction he wants to take his roster, and Lance would give him a QB to develop. The third-year sophomore had a one-game season in 2020, and he never saw an FBS opponent in his career. But he has strong downfield touch and can tuck and run, and he went the entire 2019 season without an interception.

USA Today - Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz (1/5)

19. Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech

Should Ron Rivera look to stay the course with Alex Smith at quarterback, the most reasonable route for Washington to buoy its offense might be bringing on a stalwart tackle.

Athlon Sports - Bryan Fisher (1/5)

19. Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota

Don't be shocked if the WFT aims to move up a few spots to secure OL help but if they stick here, they could still have their pick among top wideouts. Bateman's sure hands and size would turn him into a fantastic running mate to Terry McLaurin.
