Tre Nixon WR UCF Draft Profile

New England Patriots Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 7 - Pick Number: 242 (NE)
Strengths
  • Plays fast and confident. Covers a lot of ground in the short half of the field and is slippery after the catch.
  • Balanced, savvy route runner with top field awareness, setting up and selling routes beautifully.
  • Has elite speed and cutting ability and good hands and toughness. Lacks the ideal size, but has a similar body type to Antonio Brown.
  • Fluid athlete with explosive burst and speed to stretch the field and breeze past defenders. Has a quick first step and gets to top speed in a hurry.
  • Combines speed, balance, quickness, vision and crisp cuts to leave defensive backs and linebackers in the dust.
Weaknesses
  • Will have limitations against physical cornerbacks because of his thin frame. If locked up at the line, he lacks the upper-body strength to fight off the press with his hands.
  • Undersized with average height and a very lean frame - marginal bulk and poor strength.
  • Hands are good, not great. Will drop some easy balls and sometimes will body catch. Occasionally fails to high point.
  • Lacks ideal size and strength and is a ¬∑mallish target with a lean, frail-looking frame. Can be overmatched at the line of scrimmage when physical !le/enders get their hands on him. Struggles in press coverage and was knocked on his back more than a few times.
  • NFL defenders may be able to knock him off his route because of his slight frame.
