Scouting Report

Bixby will be a strongside defensive end for the Gophers, fulfilling the same role that we’ve seen Winston DeLattiboudere handle for the last three seasons. He lacks the speed to be a rush end, but he makes up for it with agility that won’t make him a liability on passing downs. What stands out about Bixby is how disciplined he is, from maintaining a consistent pad level to making sound choices when reacting to a play. But his natural brute force is the main attraction here. That power, coupled with his physical and mental tools, makes him a formidable foe in the leverage battle. He has the strength to hold up in the running game and the quickness to get in the backfield.
