Commanders OC Kliff Kingsbury was busy at the pro days of Jayden Daniels and Drake Maye

The Washington Commanders hold the No. 2 overall pick in the 2024 NFL draft. It’s no secret that Washington is likely targeting a quarterback with the pick.

So, it’s no surprise the Commanders have sent a heavy presence to the pro days of each of the draft’s top quarterback prospects.

Last week, it was Jayden Daniels (LSU) on Wednesday and Drake Maye (North Carolina) on Thursday. Several pictures and videos have been making the rounds of general manager Adam Peters and head coach Dan Quinn interacting with Daniels and Maye.

Peters and Quinn weren’t the only two from Washington attending these pro days. Assistant general manager Lance Newmark and offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury were also present.

This is not a surprise, as Kingsbury is expected to have a significant say in who the Commanders pick in the draft. Ultimately, though, Peters will make the call.

Meanwhile, Kingsbury was doing his homework on Daniels and Maye last week, spending plenty of time with their respective college coaches.

Here, Kingsbury is with Daniels’ QB coach.

When Kingsbury was at North Carolina’s pro day, he spent a lot of time with UNC offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey.

Here’s another instance where Kingsbury is seen talking with Lindsey. This time, Peters joins in the conversation.

Kingsbury spent time talking with coaches when he was at USC’s pro day two weeks ago to see Caleb Williams. Kingsbury spent 2023 as an analyst at USC.

Kingsbury will not make the final decision, but his input into each quarterback will carry a lot of weight as he’ll work closely with the young passer once he arrives.
