  • Dennis Dixon drafted

    5th round of the MLB draft...i know he was a top prospect in highschool, but didnt he give up baseball? a bit high for a guy who hasnt played in a while, but his upside as an athlete has always been tremendous.

    Wow. First I've heard of this. So who drafted him and how long do they have the rights to him? I'm not really up on baseball like I used to be. I'd imagine he'd stick with football and go on to the NFL, but 5th round is pretty high for baseball. Maybe he has a better future there. I'd be interested to see his comments on this.

              Dixon should play baseball. Players like him are a dime a dozen in football but there aren't too many 6'5" super athletic players with a cannon arm in baseball.

                    reports are that he will play minor league ball during the summer and return to school for football

                      Oregon has no baseball program if I remember correctly. So where has Dixon been playing and keeping his skills sharp?

                      Thanks to Bone Krusher for the sig

                        point being....why would he stick to football if he gets benched on his college team

                          That's neat. Several players in the NFL got drafted by MLB teams, such as Cedric Benson.

                            because he still has upside as a football player...duh. just cuz he gets benched doesnt really mean anything, especially in his 1st full year of starting at QB.

                            oregon does have a baseball program, but dixon didnt play baseball in college. he was a very very good prospect coming out of highschool, not sure why he didnt sign out of highschool.
