LSU coach Brian Kelly may have leaked some big NFL Draft news at the school’s pro day on Thursday.

Kelly discussed the players working out at the school’s pro day, including quarterback Jayden Daniels. When discussing the quarterback, Kelly seemingly suggested that Daniels will be playing in Washington in 2024.

“He’s going to get the ball out to the playmakers and make plays for Washington,” Kelly said.

The Washington Commanders do hold the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL Draft, and with Caleb Williams likely to go No. 1, Daniels will probably be there for the taking. Perhaps Kelly is just trying to speak this into existence, as Drake Maye and JJ McCarthy are also seen as options for a quarterback-needy team like Washington. Recent reports did suggest that Daniels may be Washington’s preference at No. 2. The Commanders may be poised to spring a surprise, though, depending on what you believe.

Last year, some were convinced that they knew what the Carolina Panthers would do with the No. 1 pick based on some similar audio. That did not end up happening, so one should probably take Kelly’s words with a grain of salt.
