Commanders Hosting Four Top Quarterback Prospects at the Same Time

The Washington Commanders are getting an up close look at four top quarterback prospects before the 2024 NFL draft. In an odd twist, they are hosting all of them at the same time.

Washington will reportedly host LSU’s Jayden Daniels, North Carolina’s Drake Maye, Michigan’s JJ McCarthy and Washington’s Michael Penix Jr. together on Tuesday and Wednesday. The four signal-callers are part of the larger group of prospects joining them.

It’s not clear why the Commanders are bringing in all four of the quarterbacks at once. It seems owner Josh Harris, general manager Adam Peters and head coach Dan Quinn are thinking outside the box. Maybe they want to observe and compare the prospects’ table manners in person at the same time. Or it’s possible they’ll ask the players to strap on gloves and duke it out for the right to be the second pick in the draft. There are so many possibilities, many of them hilarious.

The Commanders are all but locked in to taking a quarterback with the No. 2 pick in the draft. They traded incumbent starter Sam Howell to the Seattle Seahawks this offseason and currently feature a depth chart headlined by Marcus Mariota. Virtually everyone on the planet expects Washington to snag its franchise quarterback when they are on the clock.

With the Chicago Bears having all but already announced they will take USC’s Caleb Williams with the first selection, the Commanders have their pick of the rest. That leaves the aforementioned quartet to battle for the spot. Meanwhile, Oregon’s Bo Nix has to be feeling really left out.

It’s worth noting, the New England Patriots — who own the No. 3 pick — have also brought in Daniels, Maye, McCarthy and Penix for visits, though not at the same time. That appears to be unique to the Commanders.
