'06 NFL Draft Watch: Akron

Barely missing out on a post season invite last year, the Zips now begin to life after Charlie Frye. The team offers marginal NFL-talent on both sides of the line.

Scouting the MAC: Akron

Receiver Domenik Hixon is a solid intermediate range target who effectively uses his frame to shield away opponents, displaying top eye\hand coordination and good focus. Hixon does body catch and loses out in battles. His value at the next level will be as a kick return specialist.

Nose guard at Kiki Gonzales is a quick lineman with the great first step off the snap and excellent power. Getting push up the field, Gonzales consistently finds himself doubled in the middle of the line. Possessing only a short area burst of speed, he lacks top size and is more of a straight line run stuffer.
