Biography: Three-year starter who manned the left tackle position as a senior after holding down the right tackle spot as a sophomore and junior.
Positives: "Massive offensive lineman who is best as a position blocker. Sets with a wide base, keeps his feet moving, and is strong at the point. Gets movement run blocking and drives defenders off the line. Fights with his hands, works to bend his knees, and seals opponents from the action. Effectively works with teammates."
Negatives: Lacks overall balance and agility and is not a natural knee bender. Not light on his feet or effective in motion. Lacks the ability to slide out laterally and does not show good blocking range.
Analysis: Hix is a strong offensive tackle who is best on the right side and should develop into a reserve in the NFL.
