5. D’Cota Dixon
D’Cota Dixon began his Badgers’ career as a cornerback before moving to safety in 2016. The move has been a great one for Dixon and has allowed him to thrive in his career.
At 5-foot-10, he was a little on the shorter side for corner, but he can use his athleticism and natural instincts at safety to allow him to fly around the field. He’s averaged 59 tackles over the last two seasons and will likely build upon that this season.
Dixon will probably be a mid to late round selection in the 2019 draft. He lacks some of the elite physical characteristics others at his position have, but he’s a great leader in the locker room and on the field. Most of all, he’s versatile and will work his tail off for any program.
