If Dixon proves to be a capable player in training camp and can show he can block, I think he would make a good fullback given his size and quickness. This will do several things, one get him playing time and assimilted and the game especially with the linemen, then when he is ready and it is time replace Gore. Woud also be great not knowing if he would get the or if gore got the ball.
I am thinking along the lines of what was done with Roger Craig. Of course Craig did have experience playing FB.
Also it would save a spot on the ros.
If you don't think so, why not.
Just trying to create something to talk about till TC, so don't have a cow!
