Anthony Dixon   #26 RB

Height: 6-1   Weight: 233   Age: 28

Born: 9/24/1987 Jackson , MS

College: Mississippi State

Experience: 6th season

High School: Terry HS [MS]









Draft 2010

Pick No.173

Selected By: San Francisco 49ers

Round: 6

Pick (Overall): 4 (173)

Pick Analysis: Dixon is a big, powerful back that runs with a good pad level and does a good job of keeping his feet alive to gain yards after contact. He lacks the speed to be a threat out wide or to take many all the way once he gets to the second level but he will move the chains and sustain drives. He can be a bit inconsistent when it comes to blocking but has the ability to deliver a good blow when he wants to. He will likely initially be a short yardage or red zone back that specializes in gaining the tough yards.
