10. Kenneth Dixon:
Career stats with Baltimore: 88 carries, 382-yards, 2 touchdowns, 30 receptions, 162-yards, 1 touchdown
Is this a premature sentence for a man I once called the next great Ravens running back? Perhaps. But the signs are there, and I can’t remember the last time I was this disappointed over a fourth round pick.
Coming out of Louisiana Tech, Dixon was college football second all-time touchdown leader with 87 touchdowns. Dixon, with a 5’10” 212-lbs. build, showed tons of promise as a rookie. The man missed four games his rookie season, but still managed to rack up 544 scrimmage yards and an impressive 30 receptions in a part-time role. Plus, he managed this:
Dixon missed all of 2017 with a torn meniscus. To add insult to injury (pun intended), Dixon was suspended six total games.
While the suspension has been served its not a good look. With the emergence of Alex Collins and a deep running back draft class coming up, Dixon’s chance to become that difference maker the Ravens envisioned him to become are dwindling.
With all the fanfare he received following his rookie season, Dixon finds himself on this list. In three years, we might not even remember who Kenneth Dixon is.
