BIO: All-Conference selection as a senior after career-best numbers of 75/1,210/8. Posted 66/882/6 as a junior. Four-year starter who originally played safety.
POSITIVES: Explosive receiver with an improving game. Quickly gets off the line, immediately gets to top speed and beats opponents downfield. Finds the open spot in the defense and is effective running after the catch. Displays sharpness into routes and quickness out of breaks.
NEGATIVES: Loses out in battles and gives marginal effort blocking. Tentative and still learning the position.
ANALYSIS: A solid athlete who works hard on the field, Hixon offers plenty of potential yet still needs time to complete his game. Potential fourth receiver for an NFL squad.
