Conference: Sun Belt
HT: 6-1.5
WT: 260
40 Time: 4.75
Biography: Junior college transfer who began his career at Nebraska. All-Conference selection as a senior, after totals of 49/10.5/4. Lined up at defensive tackle last season.

Positives: Undersized yet athletic defensive lineman who can be used at multiple positions. Plays with good pad level, fluid changing direction and pursues down the line to make plays. Works his hands throughout the play, shows good punch at the point of attack, and keeps his feet driving on contact. Resilient, and stays with the action. Plays with a large degree of quickness. Forceful up the field and flashes lower body power.

Negatives: Must improve his playing balance. Tends to over-pursue the action at times. Lacks bulk and will wear down at the next level.

Analysis: After bouncing around from college to college prior to last season, Dixon pulled together a terrific senior campaign and made himself a prospect. He possesses size limitations and will not fit every system, yet his movement skills and speed will be tough to pass up.

Projection: FA
