As Washington continues its decades-long search for a franchise quarterback, the WTOP Sports team will spend the next two weeks breaking down the best fit for the Commanders for 2022 and beyond.

In Part I, our team delves into which rookie available in the 2022 NFL Draft is the answer. Is it Pitt’s Kenny Pickett at No. 11 overall or is there a better “QB of the future” option? (In Part II next week, we’ll focus on the veteran options available via trade or free agency.)

Also inside the D.C. Sports Huddle presented by Bet MGM: The WTOP Sports team discusses the possibility of Rick Pitino coaching Maryland, the impact of Major League Baseball’s ongoing labor issues and the Capitals’ recent struggles.

WTOP Senior Sports Director Dave Johnson, Sports Director George Wallace, Senior Content Producer Rob Woodfork and fellow sports anchor Dave Preston talk about it.
