Player Overview

Nixon began his career at Memphis, starting 13 of 18 games before deciding to transfer to Tulane and sitting out the 2012 season.

Back on the field in 2013, Nixon saw action in nine games, finishing with 13 tackles and a pass break-up while also contributing on special teams.

As a senior, Nixon started eight of 11 games he played in, finishing with 31 tackles and an interception.

Strengths Weaknesses

Adequate size at 5-11, 187, but really stood out with a blistering 4.36-second 40-yard dash at his pro day to go along with a 38 1/2-inch vertical jump.
