Dai'Jean Dixon Nicholls State
Dai’Jean Dixon is hoping to have a breakout senior season for Nicholls State. The big time playmaker for the Colonels is closing on the program’s All-Time Records in multiple categories

Dai’Jean Dixon was a beast for Edna Karr High School in Louisiana, and hauled in 42 receptions for 1,004 receiving yards and scored 11 touchdowns. He helped the Cougars go undefeated his senior year, and now Dixon is blowing up on the NCAA scene.

It would not take long for Dixon to make his name at the college level. The 6040 wide out is huge and has great hands. As a true freshman he played in all 12 games starting 7 games. He was one of two freshman to start for the Colonels.

He finished his true freshman campaign with 23 receptions and 489 yards to go along with 5 touchdowns. That is a pretty impressive stat line for a true freshman.

As a sophomore, he was named second team All-Southland team. He finished his second year with 53 receptions for 753 yards and scored 7 touchdowns. The impressive thing is he averaged 14.2 yard per reception.

Last year, Dixon blew up. He finished the season as one of the top small school wide outs in the country. He was All-Southland First Team and boy was he a beast! He tallied 1,044 yards on 54 receptions adding 8 more touchdowns to his total.

Dai’Jean Dixon Highlights

Dixon finished his junior year averaging 116 yards per game and ranked 16th in the FCS with 19.3 yards per reception.

I am expecting a huge year in 2020 from Dixon. He has a huge body and needs just one more year to solidify himself as a top wide receiver prospect.

NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:

When I watch film of Dai’Jean Dixon, I get fired up. The kid plays with so much passion. He is a big time deep threat and has great hands. When you watch his film, he has a knack of getting the ball at all costs. Big wide receivers are hard to find, and every NFL team wants a playmaker with size when they get down to the redzone. Dixon is a huge target with tons of playing experience. He is humble, and honest. Those are great qualities, I am expecting a major season Dai’Jean. I know you will read this, so my message to you is break every record you can this year. You have one more year to display your abilities, leave it all on the field. – Damond Talbot, Owner, NFL Draft Diamonds
