Commanders pick dynamic Daniels at 2

The Washington Commanders have selected LSU QB Jayden Daniels with the second overall pick of the 2024 NFL Draft.

It had been widely expected that Daniels, who won the 2023 Heisman Trophy, would be the Commanders pick, but there was a little doubt. However, in the end new head coach Dan Quinn clearly decided Daniels was his guy.

In the buildup to the draft Quinn had made multiple mentions of how he viewed the QB prospects a little differently as a defensive guy. Stating the multiple ways a QB could challenge a defence was a perfect setup for the Daniels selection.

Daniels is the dynamic QB the Commanders need

PFF had this to say about him, “Daniels’ rushing ability and fundamentals give him a high floor as a player who can put a ton of stress on a defense. His arm talent is good enough to give him a decently high ceiling and makes him a worthy first-round pick.”

In his final year at LSU, Daniels threw for 3,811 yards, 40 touchdowns and just 4 interceptions. He also added 1,250 yards on the ground and another 10 scores. It was this dual threat that clearly excited the Washington brass.
