Per The MMQB's Albert Breer, not a single NFL general manager attended former Oregon and Auburn football quarterback Bo Nix's pro day -- though Chicago Bears coach Matt Eberflus was, along with several of his staffers.

"With free agency rolling, there wasn't a single GM at Oregon QB Bo Nix's Pro Day, and just one head coach—Bears coach Matt Eberflus, who led a sizable Chicago contingent," Breer tweeted on March 12.

With the Atlanta Falcons off the board as an option after signing Kirk Cousins to a fully guaranteed three-year contract worth $84 million, the Bears, Denver Broncos, and Minnesota Vikings look like Nix's most likely landing spots.

Bo Nix's three years with Auburn football deemed bellwether for NFL career

Blogging Dirty's Nick Halden foresees Nix's NFL career resembling his performance as an Auburn Tiger as opposed to his Heisman finalist-caliber performance under center the past two years at Oregon.

"It was an impressive year and with a good combine Bo Nix is likely an early day two pick with Jayden Daniels, Caleb Williams, and Drake Maye all clearly ahead of him," Halden prefaced before saying, "Nix is an older prospect that comes with a myriad of concerns.

"The NFL version of Nix is likely much closer to what we saw in Auburn and not the player he was with the Ducks. Whether it is his ability to process the field or not letting a play go the reasons to avoid Nix in Atlanta are obvious. Perhaps in the perfect NFL system, Nix could be a solid backup but he clearly isn't a starter long-term, and drafting him as such sets your team up for failure."

If NFL scouts are expecting the 2019 or 2020 version of Nix in the pros, it's not a shock to see him have so few onlookers at his pro day. But even the 2021 AU version of Nix would be, at minimum, a backup at the next level.
