Louis Nix

School: Notre Dame
Position: DT
Positive: Three-year starter at nose tackle for Notre Dame. Struggled with knee issues as a junior, playing in just eight games and posting 27 tackles. Career-best totals of 50 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, and two sacks came during his sophomore season. Nimble, athletic defensive line prospect with a lot of upside. Fires off the snap, bends his knees, and plays with excellent pad level. Easily changes direction or immediately alters his angle of attack. Shows a burst of speed in a straight line as well as laterally. Wide-bodied defender who moves extremely well for his size. Flashes power in his lower body with the ability to get push up the field and bull rush blockers off the line of scrimmage. Fires through the open gaps to make plays in the backfield.
Negative: Slow getting off blocks once engaged at the point of attack. Must develop more moves with his hands. Looked heavy and out of shape as a junior.
Analysis: At the top of his game, Nix is a load to handle in the middle of the line and defender who occupies blockers as well as makes plays on the ball. He's a three-down defender at nose tackle or even in a conventional four-man line and offers a lot of possibilities if he gets his game back on track.
