2014 prospect watch: Louis Nix

New, comment

The Phinsider isn't just preparing for the 2014 NFL season--we love college football, too. And this year's draft prospect class features some outstanding talent that will soon electrify Sundays the way it dominates Saturdays. This is a video series of the top 15 league-wide draft prospects for 2014.

Notre Dame defensive tackle Louis Nix might be the No. 1 prospect in what appears to be a very strong 2014 DT class. The big pro comparison to Nix is Green Bay's B.J. Raji, and it's not hard to understand it when you see Nix on tape. He isn't a pass-rush monster by any means, but few 0-technique prospects move with the cat-like quickness and fluidity that Nix possesses. We rarely hear/read the term "rare ability and upside" with the nose tackle position, but Nix is really that agile.
