Xzavier Dickson

School: Alabama
Position: OLB
Bio: Totaled 42 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss and 9 sacks last season as a full-time starter. Junior numbers included 13 tackles. Started six games as a sophomore and finished with 33 tackles.
Positive: Underrated linebacker who displays a complete game. Instinctive, plays within himself and gets off blocks to make plays on the ball carrier. Breaks down well, uses his hands to protect himself and effectively gets outside the numbers pursuing the action. Easily moves laterally to the flanks in coverage and quickly pursues ball carriers from the backside. Displays a good change of direction and solid pass rush skills. Stands up over tackle or comes out of a three-point stance then bends off the edge, defeats blocks and gets to the quarterback.
Negative: Does not seem to play with a sense of urgency. Marginally productive in college and inconsistent at Alabama. Average closing burst.
Analysis: Dickson rebounded after poor junior campaign and proved to be a terrific three-down defender last season. Best when the action is in front of him, Dixon could surprise at the next level as a starting outside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment.
