NFL | Xavier Nixon looks overmatched

Fri, 25 Jan 2013 10:21:40 -0800

Florida OT Xavier Nixon looked overmatched athletically at the Senior Bowl this week while playing offensive tackle. He struggled against speed rushers and lacked the feet and agility to adjust to fast pass rush moves. Nixon showed a lack of quickness but was more effective at guard this week. However, he struggled there, too, failing to bend his knees and block with leverage. He will not be a high draft pick.
