3. Washington Commanders third-round pick: Chad Muma, LB, Wyoming
Although the plan going into round three was undoubtedly to upgrade the offensive line, taking Chad Muma to pair up with 2021 first-round pick Jamin Davis was simply too enticing to ignore.
Washington is going to need to maintain a very high level of defensive play to support a rookie quarterback, and the off-ball linebacker position is really one of the only spots with a missing piece in that unit.
With David Mayo slated to hit free agency, a player like Muma could come in and give the Washington Commanders two commanding, athletic playmakers at the off-ball linebacker position.
At 6-foot-3, 245 pounds, Muma flies around the field instinctively and with a ton of athletic explosiveness.
Every NFL team is looking for the next Fred Warner. Why do we think Washington prioritized Jamin Davis a year ago?
If Davis can continue to develop, he and Muma would give this team an enviable duo for years to come at the off-ball linebacker spot.
More than just cleaning up what gets behind the defensive line, Muma is capable of wrecking offensive gameplans with his aggressiveness and ability to shoot gaps. He racked up 16 tackles for loss over the past two seasons.
