Washington Redskins Draft Profiles: Ahmad Dixon, SS

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Redskins draft profile on strong safety Ahmad Dixon. Could Robert Griffin III's former teammate be a late round pick for the Redskins?

Strong Safety

Height: feet 6 ft, Weight: 200 lbs

Baylor

Strengths: Ahmad Dixon played on Robert Griffin III’s former team and he recorded 81 tackles (53 solo), 6 passes defended, 1 interception, and 1 forced fumble. He is very athletic at the strong safety position and he is a good run supporting safety.

Weaknesses: Dixon has quite a few problems, including questionable coverage skills and poor tackling technique. His man coverage, zone coverage, and ball skills are all very questionable. His tackling technique is average and it needs a lot of improvement. Dixon has a problem with tackling high and drawing penalties. Dixon is overall an undisciplined player.

Bottom Line: Dixon has a lot of upside and raw talent, but he is a project at the strong safety position. Because of his tackling technique, he would likely be a liability on special teams as well. His physical tools are intriguing, so he will likely be a mid to late round pick in the draft.

Projected round: 4-5

Team he fits best on: 49ers, Eagles, and Broncos
