Dixon is a DE from TExas Tech that has entered the Supplemental Draft.
Dixon is a versatile d-lineman that can play DE or move inside to DT and he has a dominant pass rush from the edge. McKinner produced 33 tackles, 11 tackles for a loss, and 9 sacks last year.
The downside of Dixon is that he flunked out of school after his freshman year and had to go too junior college to get his grades back up. Dixon returned to Texas Tech last year and led the team with sacks and tackles for losses. McKinner was suspended indefinitely by coach Mike Leach for not taking care of academic responsibilities.
