The NFL Draft is finally about to take off this week after months of speculation. What prospects are going to fall? Who is going to trade up? All these questions and more will be answered this week.

Dallas Cowboys division rival the Washington Commanders own the No. 2 selection in the draft and are likely going to take a quarterback. Unfortunately for them, one of the top QB prospects isn't too fond of Washington and has his sights set on other locations.

Cowboys News: Jayden Daniels Clearly Isn't Thrilled to Suit Up For the Washington Commanders

The Athletic's Dianna Russini released an article on the rumors she's hearing leading up to the draft.

In regards to Daniels, she said, "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."

The former LSU standout was turned off by the Commanders after his visit. Washington's visits consisted of taking prospects to TopGolf, which included QB prospects like Daniels, J.J. McCarthy, Michael Penix Jr., and Drake Maye.

They rubbed Daniels and his agent the wrong way. Most traditional meetings especially with QBs, get more one-on-one time with important members of the organization. That did happen with Washington but this wasn't the same as other traditional pre-draft meetings he's taken.

That turned him off and Daniels has decided to voice his dream of going to the Las Vegas Raiders to be reunited with head coach Antonio Pierce. He also named the Minnesota Vikings as a team he would want to play for.

We know these prospects don't actually have a choice on where they want to go but this isn't good news for Washington. It's never good to start a relationship on bad terms but that's where things could be headed.

That could spell bad news for the Commanders, but great news for Dallas.
