2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame
Nix could have made the jump to the NFL last season after Notre Dame's near run to a National Championship. His return to the Fighting Irish was going great until late November when he opted for knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus. Draft stock will need to rebound as the NFL coaches/scouts will want to see that his injury caused no serious short-term effects. Before his injury, he displayed very quick feet and a nice burst at the snap. Possesses excellent, thick frame. Will command double-team attention early in his career.
Could be a terrific fit both as a 4-3 DT or 3-4 NT. Average pass-rusher. To his benefit, he does have a couple moves, but he mostly relies on his power to collapse the pocket. Could do a better job using his hands to disrupt passing lanes. Above-average pursuit for his size.
Nix projects late first to early second round prospect in the 2014 NFL Draft.
