LOUIS NIX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Is Louis Nix III the best of both worlds?

For the premium the NFL puts on pass rushers, many teams also have a need for a big space-eating defensive tackle to help them inside against the run. Former Notre Dame defensive tackle Louis Nix III is thought to be just the kind of inside presence that those teams are looking for, so I decided to break him down next. For the purposes of this breakdown I watched Nix play against...

Video: Former Notre Dame Star Louis Nix Gets Dunked On At Frat Party

Notre Dame prospect Louis Nix has high motor at DT

It seems Louis Nix rarely takes a day off. Heck, despite carrying 350 pounds as a defensive lineman at Notre Dame, he rarely took a play off. Maybe it's because staying in motion has served Nix well in life and football. The best pure nose tackle prospect in the 2014 NFL draft pool likely will come off the board in the first round next month. But regardless of when Nix is picked...

WATCH: Louis Nix can't stick landing of broad jump at combine

Notre Dame defensive tackle Louis Nix made the broad jump look easy at the NFL Scouting Combine Monday. It was just the landing part that proved difficult for him. The 6-foot-2, 331-pound Nix did all he could to stay on his feet after completing the jump, including some impressive arm circles, but gravity was not on his side.

Notre Dame Football: VanGorder is the right man for the job

Bob Diaco developed a defense that ranked the Notre Dame football team in the top 30 nationally in scoring defense four years in a row, something the Irish had only done twice in the previous ten years.  After Diaco’s departure to Connecticut, the Irish were in desperate need of a defensive coordinator who could fill Diaco’s shoes. They got just that when they hired Brian VanGorder...

Louis Nix Had A Great Time Trolling Notre Dame Fans About Returning In 2014

Notre Dame’s star defensive tackle Louis Nix may actually be better at Twitter than he is at football, which is saying something.
