But Becton could be in play for the Burgundy and Gold if they decide to trade back in the draft. The Detroit Lions (pick No. 3), Miami Dolphins (No. 5), Los Angeles Chargers (No. 6) and Carolina Panthers (No. 7) could all be in the market for a quarterback come draft time, and trading up with Washington may be the only way for one of those teams to ensure they’ll be able to draft the signal-caller of their choice.

Fans need to prepare themselves for significant salary jumps this free agency period, especially if the NFL and NFL Player’s Association agree to terms on a new collective bargaining agreement. The money will soar, the salary cap will soar, and the market for individual players will soar.

Isaiah Simmons, Clemson (No. 9 to Jaguars): He had the best 40 today with an official 4.39. He ranks at No. 6 on D.J.’s top-50 list.

Logan Wilson, LB, Wyoming: Wilson cemented top-100 consideration with an excellent combine performance. Despite weighing a solid 241 pounds, he was fast (4.63 40, 1.54 10-yard split) on the runway. His jumps were adequate (32-inch vertical, 10-1 broad) but his safety-like movement (and hands) during on-field work made it evident he can handle coverage responsibilities on Sundays.
