It feels like Bo Nix has been in college forever, but the 23-year-old is having his best season to date with Oregon and appears to be a top prospect in next year’s draft.
Nix started his career with Auburn and was named starter late in his freshman season. Although he led the Tigers to the Outback Bowl in 2019, he didn’t take a step forward, throwing for 7,251 yards, 39 touchdowns, 16 interceptions, and completing just 59.4 percent of his passes in three seasons at Auburn.
A change of scenery did Nix wonders, however, and he has thrived under Dan Lanning. Nix has completed just over 74 percent of his passes since moving to Eugene and has 50 touchdowns compared to eight interceptions. His mobility is still as good as it ever was, with 14 rushing touchdowns last season, but it also is modest enough to help him move around in the pocket.
Nix will be 24 years old when he enters the NFL, but he’s done enough at Oregon to reinvent himself. A dual-threat athlete who now thrives under pressure, Nix will be a coveted prospect throughout the draft process.
