Jayden Daniels knows exactly which teams he would love to play for as we get set for the start of the NFL Draft this week.

There were significant rumors that surfaced of apparent discord between LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels’ camp and the Washington Commanders after they hosted him and every other top QB at the same time, but things have since “smoothed over,” per Albert Breer of MMQB on Tuesday.

Daniels has been the most popular projected pick of the Washington Commanders for the past few months.

Dianna Russini of The Athletic reported this week that Daniels is “cool” with going to Washington, but he also has other preferences for two different teams.

Jayden Daniels could see himself playing for the Las Vegas Raiders and Minnesota Vikings.

Dianna Russini of The Athletic explained why:

“Since the visit, league sources have said Daniels has told people in his ‘dream world’ he could reunite with Las Vegas Raiders coach Antonio Pierce, who was an assistant coach at Arizona State during Daniels’ time with the Sun Devils, or play under Kevin O’Connell in Minnesota,” Russini wrote.

Per ESPN‘s Dan Graziano, the Las Vegas Raiders “would love” to draft Jayden Daniels. The Raiders hold the No. 13 pick, then select again at No. 44.

Graziano added that the Raiders have had talks with the Arizona Cardinals about a trade-up for No. 4, but ultimately, the final decision comes after the first three selections are off the board.

The question for the Vikings will be how willing they are to trade up, as they have picks No. 11 and No. 23 in the first round. They certainly have the draft capital to make the move.

Daniels has taken meetings with the Vikings, Raiders, Commanders, New England Patriots, New York Giants, and Denver Broncos.
