In this story:

The Commanders are doing yeoman's work in the 2024 Draft - flipping the roster after flipping the front office and coaching staff. Jayden Daniels, Johnny Newton, Mike Sainsistril, and now Kansas State tight end Ben Sinnott.

Sinnott possesses an elite versatility skill set that sets him apart from most tight ends outside of maybe Brock Bowers who was taken 13th overall by the Las Vegas Raiders. He can line up inside, and outside and is a proven blocker as well. He may have gone unnoticed while at Kansas State, but with no tight ends really on their roster other than Zach Ertz, the Commanders get the second-best player at the position in the draft.

Over the course of his collegiate career at K-State, Sinnott compiled 82 receptions for 1,138 yards and 10 touchdowns while also adding a rushing touchdown on top of it. His versatility to be able to play the TE position and also line up at H-back should create problems for opposing defenses in the NFL.

The Commander fans have had mixed reactions to their picks thus far into the draft, so let's see how they are feeling about Sinnott.
