Scouting Report/Player Notes

Nixon was one of the top offensive linemen in the country as a freshman in 2009, but it’s been a steady decline for his career since then. He hasn’t established himself as a dominant offensive tackle in the SEC, though he has the talent to be. He might be sliding down draft boards, but I think he is one of those guys who could potentially be a better professional than he has been a college player to this point. He’s got a good frame and with good coaching could be a real gem in the draft.
