Louis Nix III – Nose Tackle, Notre Dame, 6-2, 345
Nix may be the first big defensive lineman taken in the first round. If the Packers can’t re-sign B.J. Raji before March, then they may have no choice but to go after Nix in this year’s draft.
Nix fits perfectly as a 3-4 nose tackle. He reminds many of Raji coming out of Boston College in 2009.
Many project Nix to go in the top 15 of the first round, so the Packers may not get a chance to take him. Hopefully, the Packers can get a deal done with Raji and use their first round selection to address another area on the team.
