3. Washington Commanders
The Commanders may only be a quarterback away from being a playoff-caliber team. Whoever that quarterback is -- if they ever find the right guy -- he won’t have a problem with the talent he will throw to.
The receiver unit is currently led by pro bowler Terry Mclaurin, who has posted three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons and has scored 21 touchdowns in his first four seasons. Remember that Washington has juggled multiple QBs since Scary Terry entered the league in 2019, making his numbers all the more impressive.
Next to Mclaurin is veteran Curtis Samuel. Samuel finished 2022 with 64 receptions, 656 yards and four touchdowns. He also added 187 yards rushing and one score. Samuel provides versatility for this offense and, at times, has lined up in the backfield, making him a threat to contribute in a multitude of ways.
The Commanders also have last year's first-round selection, Jahan Dotson. Despite missing five games, Dotson put up 523 yards receiving and seven touchdowns. The Penn State product is one of the most underrated WRs in the game and should continue his climb up the ranks this year.
Overall, it is a promising unit that has the potential to grow more, especially if second-year quarterback Sam Howell can provide the offense with a spark.
