Ryan Carrethers pick should please Chargers fans after passing on Nix III

The draft, thus far, has been pretty good for the Chargers and their fans with the exception of a little frustration yesterday over passing on Louis Nix III. Yes, it would have been nice to reunite Nix III with Manti Te’o and get the “apparent” best nose tackle in the draft, but after the Chargers drafted Ryan Carrethers in the fifth round, I am really starting to love this...

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...

Louis Nix is intriguing NFL Draft prospect

The Jaguars would also likely need to take an offensive player with the third-overall pick to be interested in adding to their line. Both Nix and Tuitt will be two of the more fascinating prospects to follow when the draft opens May 8. The two are considered borderline first-round picks, with Nix seemingly having the better chance to hear his name called that Thursday. However,...

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...
