NFL Draft Order: Could the Commanders Trade Pick No. 11 For Star QB?

Could Washington move the pick in hopes of acquiring one of the league's top quarterbacks who could be on the move this offseason?

For the fourth time in five seasons, the Washington Commanders finished with seven wins under their belt, and if not for a bevy of injuries, maybe coach Ron Rivera would have led his team to the playoffs in back-to-back years. 

But missing out on the postseason could result in a positive, as the Commanders now hold a top selection during the 2022 NFL Draft, which will begin on Thursday, April 28, at the Caesars Forum Convention Center in Las Vegas.

With a high selection, Washington has the opportunity to select one of the draft's best collegiate talents ... Or exchange the pick in hopes of acquiring one of the NFL's "disgruntled'' quarterbacks in Aaron Rodgers, Deshaun Watson or Russell Wilson.

Following the conclusion of the 2021 campaign that ended with the Los Angeles Rams securing the Vince Lombardi Trophy on Sunday, the Commanders are in a position to make one of the most significant trades in league draft history. 

Let's check out the 2022 draft order ...
