The Washington Commanders are interested in a retreat in the 2022 NFL draft. Prior to the draft Washington brought on Iowa State’s Bryce Hall and Michigan State’s Kenneth Walker III for top-30 visits.
Now, you can add another top running back prospect to that list. Texas A&M recently visited Washington, leaving Isaiah Spiller behind, according to Ben Standing of The Athletic.
The 6-foot-1, 215-pound Spiller is only 20 years old and hauled more than 1,000 yards in two of his three seasons at College Station. Spiller was limited in the combine but competed in Texas A&M’s Pro Day, where he ran a 40-yard dash in 4.63 seconds.
The Commanders hosted Texas A&M RB Isaiah Spiller and Central Michigan OL Luke Goedecke today, per Source. Washington used several “30” trips on the back and linemen. Here both players are likely day 2 picks.

While the 40 bar may have disappointed some teams, Spiller’s film is indicative of an NFL lead back. The spiller is large and elusive and shows excellent patience.
Most consider the spiller to be a day-two pick, which means he will go somewhere in the second or third round. The Commanders don’t currently have a third-round pick due to a Carson Wentz trade, but if Washington goes back in either of the first two rounds to take a third-round pick, will it consider such a premium pick? ? After all, the commanders still have Antonio Gibson and JD McKissick.
Spiller ran 2,993 yards in three seasons in college. He also showed some ability as a receiver, finishing his career with 74 receptions.

Jalen Wiedermeier – 5.03
