    Brandon Dixon’s never seemed confused about where his abilities stand, and his NFL Scouting Combine appearance didn’t lack confidence.

    Over the weekend, the former Northwest Missouri State cornerback told media in Indianapolis he’s the best press-man corner available in this draft. To be fair, Dixon — tabbed as a potential low-round selection by multiple mock draft databases — displayed consistent skill in bump-and-run coverage in two years with the Bearcats, operating as arguably the defending national champions’ most talented player.

    The Pompano Beach, Fla., native showed some of that talent Tuesday at Lucas Oil Stadium. Dixon’s 4.41-second 40-yard dash time ranked in a tie for fifth among the 48 defensive backs and a more impressive 10th among all players.

    Dixon’s 17 bench press repetitions with 225 pounds tied for seventh among corners. Florida Atlantic’s Keith Reaser led the group with 22 reps, while Oklahoma State’s Justin Gilbert paced the field with a 4.37 40 clocking.

    Part of a two-year partnership on the Bearcats’ defensive flanks with twin brother Brian, Brandon Dixon didn’t perform as well in the more technical drills. His three-cone drill showing was fourth-worst among corners, as was the first-team all-American’s standing broad jump.

    The 6-foot, 195-pound Dixon’s 32½-inch vertical leap ranked worst among 28 cornerbacks who participated in the drill.

    Nevertheless, the talented DB who snagged six interceptions in two years at Northwest illustrated flashes that could warrant a late choice in May’s NFL

    That vert does seem low for a CB.

    That's a bad vertical. In my heyday mine was 39" at 5-11.

    Sounds like they are looking for a Richard Sherman.

    Another pick wasted on a small school prospect...
