After a storied college career that included the second most touchdowns in FBS history, Louisiana Tech running back Kenneth Dixon will continue his career in the NFL after getting selected by the Baltimore Ravens with the 134th pick of the 2016 NFL Draft.
Despite fighting injures in his sophomore and senior seasons, Dixon finished his career at Louisiana Tech with a school record 4,480 yards and 72 touchdowns on the ground. His 87 career touchdowns ranks second only to Keenan Reynolds in NCAA history.
Dixon was a part of the All-Louisiana team three times, first team All-WAC in 2012, 2012 WAC Freshman of the Year, 2012 Freshman All-American, 2013 and 2014 Second Team All-Conference USA selection, and 2015 First Team All-Conference USA selection.
Dixon was shown on mock drafts to float anywhere from early in the second round to late in the third round, a nearly unanimous pick to go on the second day of the draft. He should fill a hole running back for the Ravens moving into the 2016 season.
Congrats to the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs and running back Kenneth Dixon on sending another Louisiana Tech product to the NFL.
