Daviyon Nixon Highlights

Daviyon Nixon Draft Profile

Strengths

Daviyon Nixon is a mean, powerful, old school defensive lineman. He is stout and explosive, blowing up the interior of the line. Nixon runs defensive stunts through people, not to a location. On top of that, his footwork is unreal for a man of his size. His quick feet ensure he will not get caught up or cut, helping with his maneuverability in the trenches.

Weaknesses

While powerful, Nixon does not shred blocks and an elite level. He also has the tendency to take plays off. Wisconsin put on tape the formula to beat him, destroying his soul and motivation with combo blocks. At the NFL level, he needs to be more of an anchor.
