Washington Football Team 2021 Mock Draft Roundup, 5.0

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: - Zierlein (2/4)

19. Elijah Moore, WR, Mississippi

This is a tough pick to project, as many of the elite position players at areas of need will be gone. Fortunately for Washington, Moore is flying well under the radar. He's a very consistent, high-volume slot receiver with excellent hands and toughness. - Brooks (2/1)

19. Mac Jones, QB, Alabama

Washington is still searching for a long-term answer under center. Jones is a pinpoint pocket passer with the intangibles and leadership skills to act as Ron Rivera's top lieutenant for a team on the rise.

Akron Beacon Journal - Kadar (2/1)

19. Kyle Trask, QB, Florida

Oh Washington. WFT is a mess at quarterback. Yes, the position is so problematic for Washington that the team could be forced to reach a little in the first round. In this instance it will be taking Trask. He's a good player but Washington is in a tough position with the 19th pick and relying on Alex Smith's health is a gamble.

The Ringer - Kelly (1/31)

19. Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech

After dealing Trent Williams before the 2020 season, Washington has a chance to install another longtime fixture at the left tackle spot in Darrisaw. The Hokies star has the size, length, and athleticism to excel in multiple blocking schemes and would give the team a quality blindside protector for whoever ends up at quarterback.

USA Today - Davis (1/28)

19. Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

Yep, he'll make it four Crimson Tide wideouts drafted since 2020, sure to join Smith, Henry Ruggs and Jerry Jeudy. Waddle, who averaged 18.9 yards per catch at 'Bama, would bring the big-play capacity the WFT could use while making defenses that opt to double-cover Terry McLaurin think twice. Waddle can also make a difference on special teams, though the ankle injury that derailed his 2020 season came on a kickoff.

ESPN - Kiper (1/26)

19. Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida

I would have liked to get a quarterback for Washington, but my top five are all off the board. Ron Rivera & Co. have to figure out the position, and maybe the answer is a veteran in free agency. Instead let's focus on a wide receiver group that has only Terry McLaurin as a plus starter. Kyle Pitts got a lot of the attention from people watching the Gators this season, but Toney opened the eyes of NFL scouts. He was a Swiss Army knife, catching 70 passes with 10 scores, adding a touchdown as a runner and one more on a punt return. Think of a Tyreek Hill-type playmaker who can beat teams in a variety of ways. We've already seen Washington get creative with Antonio Gibson, and it should find ways to get the ball in Toney's hands. - Jeremiah (1/22)

19. Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida

Toney is electric with the ball in his hands, and the Washington Football Team needs more playmakers. I also wouldn't rule out a trade up for a quarterback if Washington fails to address the position in free agency.

Baltimore Sun - Doon (1/22)

19. Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota

Washington's quarterback situation is murky, especially if Alex Smith decides not to return. Unless Washington can make an aggressive move to the top of the board, it seems as if a veteran stopgap -- or perhaps playoff surprise Taylor Heinicke -- will be the starter. The priority should be putting another talented receiver next to young star Terry McLaurin, and the shifty-yet-strong Bateman fits the bill.
