Delanie Walker is already a Team Leader in Tennessee... he's called out players on the team who don't put effort. The Titans message board already have an Idea who he is talking about. His and former Raven's safety Pollard high expectations are setting examples for the rest of the young players.
I can see Dixon being a team leader for which ever team he ends up with. Especially if it is a team trying to turn the corner. Dixon works hard, is versatile, and always positive.
I know some have and still doubt his running ability...some think he is slow, etc. But I've never felt that. Well at least when he shed some pounds to be a running back again. I think he has enough speed to be a starter. His vision has improved tremendously He seems to get as much yards as possible for plays he's given. No more dancing.
I hope he goes to a team that he can compete for a starting role...or at least a team that uses their back up RBs just as much as their starters.
I believe he still has fresh legs. He seems durable. Still very athletic. Although he might have hated it at first, but I think having Harbaugh make him compete and up his over all skills might be the best thing that happened to him. He is a good run blocker, pass blocker, catches passes, converts short yardage, is durable enough to be used to finish a game out to rest a starter, and can play special teams.
