Anyone surprised?

Senior Bowl:

Players Who Hurt Their Stock Today

1. Xavier Nixon, OT, Florida (6054, 311 and 5.40): Nixon struggled throughout practice, as he simply did not display the foot quickness needed to play on the edge. His feet audibly sounded heavy during individual drills (The only OL who feet sounded loud) and he often seemed out of breath. He demonstrated limited lateral movement skills and consistently struggled with speed off the edge. He was not able to stay square to his target and got out of control with his upper body movements.

Disappointed, but not surprised; just like the last several years.

He usually saves his quickest footwork for false starts in the redzone.

I'm ashamed to say that part of me feels relieved. Its the same part that keeps telling me that our offense will be better next year with a better O-line.

Not at all surprised. If anyone needed an indication just needed to look at his matchup wiht Clowney. Future pro vs. Hopeful Pro.

UF had to chip block and scheme away from Clowney. But in honesty most teams had to do that anyway.

Sometimes, I don't understand how a player's best season can be when they are a freshman.

It's happened before.

Now, that's funny.


Maybe they should try moving him inside to guard.

If he is going to make it in the NFL that is going to probably be his best option.

More of the same, bet he could play in Ohio.

It all depends on what some teams need and how bad they need it.
If they need it bad, Nixon will deliver. :happyevil:

I don't think he has what it takes to play in an arena league.

He may suck, but no other back up on the team could beat him out for his starting spot. That's what bothers me.

We have some solid talent coming in this year including Juco transfers that should be ready to play right away.

Yes, they're the downfall of Ninjas everywhere!

I also don't understand why my feet smell but my nose runs.
