A former 5 star recruit and Oregon’s newest QB, Nix was supposed to be the savior for Auburn football, however that never quite worked out. Nix is an interesting quarterback prospect who has some unique strengths in his game. His ability to maneuver the pocket and escape pressure is excellent. However, he needs to greatly improve many other aspects of his game if he hopes to make it to the next level. Starting off, Bo struggles to keep his head on a swivel which leads to poor decision making as he keys in on one guy often. His lower half mechanics are also incredibly inconsistent as he tends to rely on his arm strength, which truthfully is mediocre at best. If Bo shows progress in these areas I could see him becoming a priority UDFA for teams.
