Nix III would have been a top 10 pick last year. Arthroscopic knee surgery held him out most of this year. Would strictly be a NT for Green Bay. Great plug in the middle. Will force double teams and free up linebackers, helping tremendously at stopping the run. Great motor and work ethic. Must work on keeping pad level low in the NFL. Would be a great replacement for B.J. Raji if he does not re-sign next year.
