2021 WFT Draft Pick: Who Picked Washington? Full list of NFL Draft selections
The Nameless Team is entering an era that will define it.
The football team through Washington changed things quickly under the leadership of first-year coach Ron Rivera in 2020, winning the NFC East for the first time since 2015 and proving they may be a bit closer to competing for a title than many thought.
As the team finished at 7-9, Washington experienced serious quarterback problems throughout the season, leading to the release of former first-round pick Dwayne Haskins. Now, with Ryan Fitzpatrick at the helm, the team are set to prove that the 2020 season was no fluke.
With eight choices in the 2021 NFL Draft – including four in the top 100 – Washington is ushering in a new competitive era in football that could make it the team to beat by 2021.
Here’s a full list of the Washington football team’s draft picks in the 2021 NFL Draft, updated as selections come in.

WFT NFL Draft Needs
- Strategist: Ryan Fitzpatrick, no matter how many times he goes through the Fitzpatrick cycle, isn’t the long-term answer as a quarterback for any team at this point in his career. With five first-round QB prospects this year, it’s hard to see a team where the WFT doesn’t register on at least one of them.
- Left tackle: After Trent Williams traded with the 49ers last year, the Niners must find a way to consolidate the left side of the line. With some real first-round talent potentially available with their first-round pick, expect Washington to find a way to approach the line with their top pick.
- Return: Antonio Gibson had one hell of a rookie year for Washington last year, scoring 795 yards in 14 games. They took out running back Bryce Love, a 2019 fourth-round pick, in mid-April. Washington doesn’t have any immediate pressing issues, with a very good pass rush and secondaries, making a backfield pick something luxury.
