The Washington Football Team has many holes to fill, but quarterback may be one they address first in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Washington's first pick comes in the 19th slot of the first round, so they will have to trade up should they want one of the top pivots that will be selected in 2021.

Trevor Lawrence, out of Clemson, is the consensus No. 1 pick going to the Jacksonville Jaguars, while many believe the New York Jets will take BYU's Zach Wilson with the second pick.

The San Francisco 49ers could take Justin Fields out of Ohio State or Mac Jones out of Alabama after trading up for the No. 3 pick, and North Dakota State's Trey Lance rounds out the top-five at the position.

Washington finds themselves in this position after releasing Comeback Player of the Year Alex Smith earlier this month, in a move that saved the club $15 million. Washington is currently +280 to win the NFC East over at FanDuel Sportsbook.
