After five years as a collegiate quarterback, Bo Nix is hoping to take his talents to the NFL. Despite suffering a season-ending injury in 2021 and transferring to a different program in 2022, Nix went on to become the most accurate quarterback to ever play Division I ball.

After he started his college career at Auburn, Nix transferred to play with the Oregon Ducks for his final two seasons. 

He cemented himself in NCAA football lore as one of the greatest players to ever pass through Eugene. Not only did Nix help the Ducks improve their overall record, but he also brought a new culture to the program alongside head coach Dan Lanning.

While playing for Auburn, Nix threw 628 completions for 7,251 yards and 39 touchdowns. At Oregon, he only got better.

Nix Draft Profile

The former Duck quarterback has repeatedly said that Oregon helped him fall back in love with the game of football. As Lanning transformed the UO team, he also helped Nix regain his passion and improve his overall play.

During the 2022 season, Nix threw 294 completions for 3,593 yards and 29 touchdowns. He also threw a minimal 7 interceptions his accuracy for the year sat at 71.9 percent

In 2023, Nix’s improvement continued and he was able to avoid injury. With 77.4 percent accuracy, he had 364 completions, 4,508 passing yards, and 45 touchdowns threw the air. In his final year, he only had 3 picks.

Not to mention his 20 rushing touchdowns during his two years with the Ducks

Strengths

Nix knows football. As one of the most experienced players to come out of college, he showed his game prowess throughout his final season. He made highly intelligent, in-game decisions and was a clear leader on and off the field.

His accuracy also boosts his draft stock. As the quarterback with the NCAA single-season completion percentage record, Nix can hit nearly every blade of grass accurately.

Nix’s rushing game has also improved as he has remained healthy throughout the past year or so. Recovering from a few ankle and leg injuries took time but when his legs are at full strength, he is a hard runner for defenders to bring down.

Weaknesses

While spending a week at the Reese’s Senior Bowl, Nix’s arm strength came into question. Throwing balls well short of a few receivers streaking downfield, coaches and fans raised questions about whether he has the arm it takes to cut it in the league.

His physical health has also raised a flag. After breaking his ankle at Auburn, he reinjured his leg during his first season at Oregon. While he played through the pain, it visibly affected his playing ability and run game.

Grade: Round 2

Bo Nix says the Senior Bowl is a chance to “be your authentic self”. dark. Next. Nix
