Analysis

Strengths

Productive fullback who is more running back than bulldozer. Gets downhill with vision when off-set. Trusts his blockers. Powerfully built lower body with ability to blow through half-hearted arm tackles. Very comfortable catching the ball.

Weaknesses

Bow-legged runner whose feet barely leave the ground during his runs. Can be a little impatient with feel on interior. Has played in very limited offense and will be asked to do more as NFL fullback. Short and squatty, with issues completing blocks against bigger defenders.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

More running back than fullback, Dixon isn't big enough to be considered a full-time blocking back and might have to prove that he can be a utility H-back who can man a few positions on the field. Could struggle to find a home in the NFL.
