1. DT Jonathan Allen, Washington Commanders

The Commanders are still very much in rebuild mode, and it seems like Allen could be one defensive piece that doesn't end up as a long-term piece in Dan Quinn's defense. Da'Ron Payne is still in town, and Washington may have added a possible Allen successor in second-round pick Johnny Newton. (despite his injury).

Allen, who made Pro Bowls in 2021 and 2022, has amassed 180 tackles and 22 sacks in the last three seasons. While Justin Madubuike is fresh off one of the best seasons any defensive tackle in Ravens history has ever had, he could use more support around him.

Jonathan Allen could be worth watching for the Baltimore Ravens.

With Michael Pierce and free agent signing Brent Urban both getting long in the tooth and showing minimal pass-rush upside, the Ravens will likely be asking Travis Jones to finally break out after years of average rotational lineman play. Allen, who is sick of losing in Washington, could be all-in on winning with the Ravens.

Allen is not going to change the face of this Baltimore defense, but everything about his profile suggests he is at the tail end of his prime and can still be a high-end two-way tackle next to Madubuike for two or three more seasons. If Washington starts losing, Allen could be back on the trade market.
