Texans selection #33 overall is a tough spot, because you really have to hit. I'm not comparing Nix III to Tony Hollings but that is what Casserly did. Mistakes happen so you have to be careful & draft players with heart, desire, commitment to the game & the talent to play it. Last year I was all in on Nix III, this year not so much. Injury & inconstant play, on the wrong trend line for me.
His play/stamina fell off due to injury last yr.
If not for that Nix would be a top 15 pick. IMHO
I'm betting that Nix gets back to his 2012 level.
