...at the Senior Bowl. Still surprised he was picked to play in it, to be honest. Here's the National Football Post's assessment, listing him as one of the eight players who struggled the most.
7. Xavier Nixon, OT, Florida (6054, 311 and 5.50 E): From the first practice it was clear that Nixon was over-matched athletically playing offensive tackle. He could not kick-slide out in time to protect the corner vs speed rushers and lacked the feet and agility to re-direct and adjust to fast pass rush moves back inside. His lack of quickness also hindered his ability to get into good run blocking position and often led to him grabbing and holding his man. Nixon slid inside and played some guard this week and was more effective there, but his struggles to bend knees and block with leverage hindered him there too. Nixon is not going to be a high draft pick, but will likely be selected late because of his size, long arms and experience starting three plus seasons at Florida.

Sounds about right.
No wonder JB had no time.

I could have told them that...
Not surprising at all...
Lol I'm shocked...

Hopefully Humphries will make us forget about a lot of X's play. He was still a Gator and is a high character guy off the field. He made his share of plays this year, even stoned Clowney, once. I know DJ has super star potential and did play really good at times this year, so hopefully he'll gain weight/strength and come in ready to dominate that position. He better or one of the transfers will take it. If we have a great O line this year, we could do so much more on offense. Here's hoping!!

I think nixon was lazy he got worse as he got older...

LORD FORGIVE ME FOR THE GOON DADDY IS COMING OUT TONIGHT
Same. Cliff notes: he can't move and gets beat.
