Julian Nixon Scouting Report
Julian Nixon has an excellent frame that makes him one of the larger receivers in the class. Already a good weight and size with room for adding lean mass. Excels at going up for jump balls. Physical and makes it hard to take him down with good separational quickness. Adjusts well to the ball, good awareness and helps his quarterback by coming back to it. Fights well in traffic with excellent balance that fights for yards after contact as shown in the video below in the first play where he drags four defenders for nearly 20 extra yards. Nixon was a Sports Illustrated All American candidate. (DT Yates)
