The Washington Commanders are reportedly planning to use the No. 2 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft on a quarterback despite speculation of a potential trade, the Athletic's Dianna Russini reported on Tuesday (April 23), citing general manager Adam Peters' past public statements.

"Teams trying to move up for QB and calling Washington are being told they are not moving. Washington’s GM Adam Peters has publicly stated the Commanders feel great about staying at No. 2 and picking their QB," Russini wrote on her X account.

Russini's post comes after Peter publicly acknowledged the team's surplus of eight picks in the 2024 NFL Draft, which will begin on Thursday (April 25) night.

"I think with the optionality we have in all those picks, anything (is) in consideration," Peters said during a press conference while addressing the upcoming event. "We're going to do what's best for this organization. So if that's moving up, if that's moving back, we'll do that. And lucky for us, we have the ability to do so with all the ammo we have."

The Minnesota Vikings are among the favorites to potentially attempt to move up in the draft with two first-round picks (Nos. 11 and 23 overall) and a need at quarterback similar to several teams scheduled to pick ahead of them.
