Rookie Profile: Bo Nix, Quarterback, Denver Broncos

Welcome to the Rookie Profile for Bo Nix, a Quarterback from Oregon. He is from Pinson, Alabama, and was a 4-star recruit out of Scottsboro High School.

Nix started his collegiate career as a member of the Auburn Tigers where he started as a true freshman, appearing in 13 games and racking up a solid 2,542 passing yards and 16 touchdowns.

He totaled similar stat lines in his Sophomore and junior years at Auburn before transferring to Oregon for his Senior year.

Nix exploded in his first season with the Oregon Ducks. In 2022, as a Senior, he threw for 3,593 yards with 29 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. Not to be outdone, he followed that up with the best year of his collegiate career in his final season at Oregon. In 2023 he threw for 4,508 yards with 45 touchdowns and 3 interceptions and solidly improved his NFL Draft stock.

Draft Capital & Landing Spot

Draft Capital- Round 1 Pick 12

  • The NFL Draft proved to be a dream scenario for Bo Nix. Most experts projected him to be a second-round pick, so for him to go not only in the first round but in the top 12 was shocking. Top 12 draft capital will ensure that he gets a fair chance to win over the starting job long-term, even if he struggles as a rookie. This draft capital will insulate his value for the immediate future.

Landing Spot- Denver Broncos

  • The Broncos weren’t the dream landing spot for any of the rookie quarterbacks but seem to be the perfect fit for Bo Nix. In college Nix and the Oregon Ducks specialized in a short area passing game similar to the style of offense Broncos Head Coach Sean Payton succeeded with during his final few years in New Orleans when Dre Brees’ arm was beginning to fail him. This fit in the Denver offense would seem to be the perfect match for Nix. Payton’s short-area passing attack should do an adequate job of playing to Nix’s strengths and avoiding his weaknesses.

Fantasy Impact

The draft capital alone will allow Nix to hold high-end superflex value for multiple years regardless of his success level and the landing spot would seem to be a perfect storm for his talents to flourish. Nix doesn’t project to be a high-end fantasy asset and likely will never find himself as anything better than a high-end QB2, but with this offensive system, he should be able to parlay his skillset into reliable QB2 production.
