Mississippi State’s prospects had their chance to impress in front of 15 NFL teams, including Raiders linebackers coach Mike Haluchak, who was on hand to witness the school’s pro day that took place Thursday indoors and on FieldTurf.
Dixon (6-foot-½, 233 pounds) ran 4.62 and 4.61 seconds in the 40-yard dash, had a 32-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot-10 broad, 4.45 short shuttle, 7.24 three-cone drill, and did 15 bench press repetitions at 225 pounds. Dixon looked good in the position drills, very fluid.
Linebacker Jamar Chaney, (6-foot-7/8, 240) ran 4.56 and 4.59 40s and did position drills.
Running back Christian Ducre (5-11, 225) ran 4.65 and 4.64 40s, had a 30 ½-inch vertical, 9-4 broad, 4.26 short shuttle, 7.09 three-cone drills, and did 25 bench presses.
Mississippi State put on a well-organized pro day that started early in the morning.
