LISTEN: Could Washington Corral a Franchise QB?

Locked On Washington Football Team: Quarterback shopping and uniform clues

With the Washington Football Team's season over, the focus has shifted to the draft and search for a franchise quarterback.

Washington's 7-10 record gifted the team the 11th overall pick in April, with a chance to draft a quarterback.

Last year, the Chicago Bears traded up to No. 11 to take quarterback Justin Fields. Given the strength of this year's quarterback class, Washington might have a couple of viable options on the board.

The majority of teams selecting in the top 10 have needs other than quarterback, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see Washington land Matt Corral. The Ole Miss signal caller could challenge Taylor Heinicke for the starting quarterback spot next season.

Corral, once a Heisman favorite this past season, has the arm talent to rifle the ball 50 yards down field or break the pocket and scramble 15 yards to get a first down. Those dual-threat capabilities make him an intriguing prospect that have quarterback-needy teams interested.

Corral threw for 3,343 yards and 20 touchdowns against five interceptions. He also ran the ball 614 yards for 11 touchdowns. Whether those talents will translate to the NFL remains to be seen, but for a team like Washington that needs to shake things up, Corral might be a risk worth taking.
