A complete list of Washington Commanders picks in the 2022 NFL Draft can be found below.

Round 1

PICK #16

Washington Commanders

Jahan Dotson

WR, Penn State

The Commanders took a circuitous route to getting their deep threat complement to Terry McLaurin, knowing Carson Wentz operates best when having that type of player outside. It might seem a little forced after choosing to stay put and take either Olave or Williams, but Dotson’s speed and quickness was definitely a missing offensive element for Scott Turner.

(from NOLA)

Round 2

PICK #15

Washington Commanders

Phidarian Mathis

DT, Alabama

Mathis is a beefy nose option but also has some inside pass-rush burst. He just will be limited to being a rotational player in their strong front four behind Jonathan Allen and Daron Payne, also Crimson Tide products.

Grade: B-

(from IND)

Round 3

PICK #34

Washington Commanders

Brian Robinson Jr.

RB, Alabama

The Commanders didn’t have a glaring need in the backfield with Antonio Gibson being backup by receiving J.D. McKissic and swingman Jarret Patterson, but choose to get a little stronger in the pure power rushing attack with the bruising Robinson to relief Gibson and help take more pressure off Carson Wentz.

Grade: B-

(From NO)

Round 4


Washington Commanders

Percy Butler

S, Louisiana

Round 5

Sam Howell

QB, North Carolina
