NFL | Dixon works out for supplemental draft

John Murphy, of Yahoo Sports, reports Hutchinson (Kan.) Junior College LB David Dixon measured in at a height of just under 6-0 and a weight of 243 pounds during his workout for the NFL supplemental draft. Dixon showed good strength by completing 24 repetitions on the 225-pound bench press and showed good explosiveness with a 34-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-4 broad jump. He ran the 40-yard dash with times of 4.75 seconds and 4.88 seconds, but he appeared easily exhausted by the shuttle, agility and conditioning portion of the drills. On talent evaluator said, "He needs to show us more. … It's not just about skills and game tape. … You can see some plays and athleticism on his tapes, but you have to come out and compete on a day like this. … Today was just OK and OK does not equal the NFL, not in my book."
