Johnny Dixon had an unremarkable Senior Bowl after suffering an injury in practice. Dixon didn’t get to affect his stock much in Mobile, so the combine will be even more crucial for King’s counterpart. 

Like with Isaac and Robinson, there is a chance that Dixon, who is less-highly touted, is taken over the underclassmen whose stock continues to fall. Dixon was steady opposite King last season and with more consistent film over his 1,839 collegiate snaps, he could be seen as a more reliable selection. 

The Commanders had many weaknesses on defense, but cornerback was certainly one of them. Adam Peters, the new GM in Washington, is from was in the front office in San Franciscon last offseason when the 49ers grabbed Ji’Ayir Brown, who is about to start in the Super Bowl.
