Commanders to host Kentucky linebacker on top 30 visit

Three years ago, the Washington Commanders spent a first-round pick on Kentucky linebacker Jamin Davis. Shortly after the 2024 NFL draft, the Commanders must decide whether to pick up Davis’ fifth-year option for 2025.

Washington will likely decline the option, and for good reason. Davis has yet to show that he can consistently be an impact player. Of course, the previous coaching staff did him no favors in fairness to Davis. But some of that falls on Davis, too.

The Commanders signed two starting linebackers in free agency — Bobby Wagner and Frankie Luvu — which likely means a more specialized role for Davis in 2024.

Washington also shown an interest in linebackers in this month’s 2024 NFL draft. Coincidentally enough, one of those linebackers comes from the University of Kentucky. According to Pro Football Network, the Commanders will host linebacker Trevin Wallace on a top-30 visit.

We’ve mentioned a trend with how the Commanders use their top 30 visits. Washington is looking for players with elite traits. Wallace is 6-foot-1 and 237 pounds, but he is a phenomenal athlete. If you watch his highlights, you see a bit of Davis in him. Both lacked consistency during their college careers at Kentucky.

New head coach Dan Quinn can be trusted more to use players to their strengths. Wallace is a good blitzer and is excellent from sideline to sideline.
