Washington builds for the future and strengthens its depth in Day 3 of 2022 Mock Draft
4. Fourth Round: Andrew Steuber, T/G, Michigan
Throughout their franchise history, the Washington Football Team has prided itself on controlling the line of scrimmage. They have one All-Pro piece in Brandon Scherff and a solid center in Chase Rouiller. Charles Leno has had some issues, and Ereck Flowers is more of a depth piece. Plus, the team just drafted Sam Cosmi, so he will need some time.
Washington heads to the trenches and takes Michigan lineman Andrew Steuber. Developed in the Big Ten and coached by Jim Harbaugh, Steuber possesses the necessary skills to translate to the next level. Steuber led an offensive line this past year that powered the Wolverines to a Big Ten Championship and berth in the College Football Playoff.
His best work is run blocking, which will likely mean starting as a guard before working back to a tackle spot. Also, he has quickness off the line of scrimmage, which will open holes for Antonio Gibson to work between the numbers. His pass blocking will need some adjustment, but he has enough ability to learn it quickly and put it to use.
