Draft 2019

Pick Analysis: Nixon grew up in Compton, California, playing in musical artist Snoop Dogg's youth football league while growing up. He was not rated by recruiting services, though, so he attended Arizona Western Community College out of high school. He starred there, intercepting five passes as a freshman and becoming a second-team All-American the following year, after returning two of his six interceptions for scores and also taking two kick returns to the house. While he was a top-20 JUCO recruit when signing with South Carolina, he had to wait his turn to get on the field, playing in 12 games as a reserve in 2017, primarily on special teams (eight tackles). Nixon still managed to intercept two passes in limited time on defense, returning one 67 yards for a score. He earned a starting spot in 11 of 12 games played his senior year (63 tackles, 1.5 for loss, nine pass breakups) but had to miss the team's Belk Bowl appearance after it was discovered he had a fracture in his neck.
