BIOGRAPHY: Started five games as a senior and finished with 22 tackles as well as three tackles for loss. Junior year numbers included
21/3.5/1.5 when he started four games.
POSITIVES: Dixon has teased NFL scouts the past two seasons who feel he's underachieved on the field. He possesses the natural size and
has shown the abilities to be a big-time defensive tackle/nose tackle prospect, but his work ethic and intensity on the field
are consistently questioned. Dixon comes off another disappointing campaign, and his NFL career will be short-lived unless
the light goes on.
NEGATIVES: Must develop more moves with his hands and become quicker disengaging from blocks. Too easily turned from his angle of attack
by a single blocker.
ANALYSIS: Big, powerful interior defender who flashes dominance. Displays good first step quickness, gets a lot of push up the field,
and has shown the ability to collapse the pocket. Plays with a good degree of explosion, and easily brings ball carriers down
at the point of attack.
