Nice job jumping on this topic early and getting some info out.

Good job by Bruce adding some quality udfa right off the bat.

Of course they go after a guy from Nebrasker lol.

Xavier Nixon has a fourth round grade from Scouts Inc. Nice UDFA signing.

Re: UDFAs

I go to Nebraska and Will Compton has good insticts, not a great athlete, won't shed blocks extremely well. As much as I hate to say it, probably just a campbody or practiced squad for ILB depth

Re: UDFAs

Nixon had to be a top tier udfa. The package is there and god he played lt for the gators so you know he has experience against quality opponents.

Re: UDFAs

Josh Jarboe could be a steal

Don't know much about Tevita Stevens

Nick Williams is a good kid, but doubt he has any shot

Seth Thomas has some potential

2013 NFL draft -- Scouts Inc.'s top undrafted free agents - ESPN
Quote:
A look at the 10 best undrafted free agents after the 2013 NFL draft, according to Scouts Inc.'s prospect rankings:

5. Florida OT Xavier Nixon (66)
Nixon has quick feet for his size and flashes at times on tape, but he never realized his potential at Florida and appears to take plays off on tape. The concerns about his work ethic and desire to get better likely scared teams away.

Re: UDFAs

Xavier Nixon has all of the God-given size and athletic ability one could want in an OT. I would have been happy if the Skins had drafted him in the 5th or 6th Round.

I didn't know about his poor work habits. Knowing that, I'm even happier to get him as an UDFA because now I think his ceiling may be even higher than I had thought before. If he dedicates himself to working hard, he should succeed in the NFL and eventually become a quality starter at OT - maybe even sooner than later.

Let's hope that going undrafted was a wakeup call and a motivator for Nixon. He could solve our RT problem if he wants to put in the work to do so.

He has 18 brother and sisters all with the same "JJ" initials. That's one of the most remarkable things I have ever heard.

How man names actually start with J? They had to get pretty creative...

Apparantly, this guy couldn't even bench 20 times...perhaps that is why people are questioning his work habits, at least in the weight room...being weak on top as a T will get you crushed at the NFL level.
But if he can get serious, maybe he has a shot at making the squad...at best he is probably a practice squad guy...but his experience in the SEC is excellent...certainly happy they got a guy like this...but I don't buy that this was a 5th round guy, but wouldn't have been upset either if they drafted him there.
