Selected by the Broncos in the seventh round (251st overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft, Nixon started 21-of-38 games during his collegiate career with the University of Memphis (2010-11) and Tulane University (2012-14), totaling 92 tackles (71 solo), two interceptions (17 yds.), 10 passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
