Scouting Report: Strengths
- He’s good enough as a runner to work read-option plays, keeping back-side defenders in place.
- Picks up yards with his legs when needed.
- He’s an athlete who runs well and must be accounted for in the read-option game.
- Gets the ball out quickly, making ·splitsecond decisions. Good short to intermediate level accuracy, demonstrating the ball placement to allow receivers to run after the catch.
- Generally accurate on intermediate and short throws; flashes anticipation and placement on intermediate outs and the ability to lead receivers on deeper throws.
- Good accuracy overall, including excellent accuracy on short timing routes to backs and receivers, placing the ball slightly in front to lead receivers to potential yardage after the catch.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- He’s far too quick to lower his eyes and look for a running lane after moving off his first read (too many plays in college that won’t translate to the NFL).
- Mechanically, his stride is inconsistent, adding to accuracy issues. His decision making after the snap is shaky.
- Nix gets sloppy with his mechanics on the move, losing accuracy as Nix relies too much on his arm.
