The Washington Commanders are entering a new era.

This will be the first NFL Draft of their new ownership, and they want to make sure to get things right.

So, with USC star QB Caleb Williams most likely out of the picture, they want to get a closer look at the four best quarterback prospects who might be available.

That makes perfect sense, but they’re going to take a rather-interesting approach to do so.

According to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, they’re going to host LSU’s Jayden Daniels, Michigan’s J.J. McCarthy, UNC’s Drake Maye, and Washington’s Michael Penix Jr. all together for a top-30 visit.

Breer’s report adds that they’re part of a larger group of prospects that’ll visit the organization.

For most of the process, scouts and analysts have had Daniels penciled in as their selection, as he’s been widely recognized as the second-best player in this class.

He seems to be a perfect fit for Kliff Kingsbury’s offense, and he could be ready to make an impact right away, given the solid pieces they have on offense right now.

Then again, McCarthy continues to impress and rise in the draft boards, all while Maye seems to have the highest upside from a physical perspective.

As for Penix, he does come with plenty of risk because of his age and all the injuries, but he’s also perhaps the most polished passer of this class.

At this point, it seems like they just couldn’t go wrong either way.
