Kenneth Dixon is prolific. In high school, he rushed for 3,145 yards. He set a state single-game record rushing for 348 yards. When he arrived at Lousiana Tech he set an NCAA freshman record with 27 touchdowns on the ground. Dixion experienced a learning curve in 2013 when Lousiana Tech switched to a more pro-style running scheme. It hurt his prolific production as he was trying to get the hang of it but in an interview he says he's grateful for the change because it will have prepared him for the NFL.
None at current moment, but Kenneth Dixon, Paul Perkins have reasonable odds of delivering RB2 lines at some point. https://t.co/VRjeeiOaQD— Brad Evans (@YahooNoise) June 29, 2016

How He Makes the Ravens Better and Creates Problems for the Redskins
The Ravens will no doubt lean on veteran Justin Forsett once again this season to handle the bulk of rushing duties. But make no mistake the Ravens are loaded in the talented young running back department with Buck Allen, Kenneth Dixon, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Terrence West, and Trent Richardson. The Ravens top two spots will most likely go to Forsett and Allen. Kenneth Dixon finds himself in the thick of things competing for the third and/or fourth running back spot.
While Dixon might not see the field much this season barring injuries the Ravens are lucky to have his talents to rely upon as the third or fourth man up and he is no doubt a key part of their future rushing attack. The Redskins most likely won’t see Dixon much in their regular season matchup but the next time these two teams meet in the regular season Baltimore could be toting a formidable one-two punch in Buck Allen and Kenneth Dixon.
