I wish he was healthy. I think cloak said Nix could be ok injury wise/He wasn't as negative about his long term prognosis.

I love Nix as a player when he's healthy and his body is right, but that's just it...He's got to be healthy and have his body right.

I really liked this draft on it's surface, but so far Clowney has had 2 surgeries since he's been drafted...Xman is struggling in pass pro...Nix IR...Savage??? I guess Fido is holding it down for the meat of the draft.

Yeah right. I remember full well how many here were just pissing on themselves with joy when they got Louis Nix that low in the draft.

20/20 hindsight is a wonderful thing.

Agreed. Nix was a calculated risk at a barren spot on the roster that a lot of people were happy about.

We should have grabbed Khalil Mack and Bridgewater, but it is what it is. Still hoping for the best.

I'm no Rick Smith Fan - but round 3 is where you start gambling - Nix is / was definitely a gamble.

Yep. IF this guy gets all healed up and can play again, the pick was worth it. Unless the draft pick is a resounding success, you can't judge them their first year anyway. Even if they are bad, there is still a chance for improvement.

We've all made this mistake before.

I still like Nix. Apparently some take longer to translate to the NFL.

Anywho, he gone for the season and now we have Pickett and Powe. Anything to keep Jamison off the nose, for Pete's sake

I'd say the bottom half of round three is where you can start to gamble a little. The top of three is very close to two and solid starters can be found there without too much difficulty.

So this is one of those "Shut it down, get healthy, pretend he's a rookie next year who has a head start on all the real rookies" kind of thing right? I still won't call it a wasted pick yet. If he comes back next year physically ready to go and can take the step up to the NFL it's a great pick even with the injury going in.

I'm sure somehow in his mind, this is more proof of bad cap management than the true reason.... poor talent evaluation, which is just as good a reason to get rid of Rick Smith.

Blue is looking like the best player out of the draft. Once again, the 6th round is Rick's bread and butter.

It could be seen as a roster move as well to clear up a spot.

Thank you Royalty. I said from the get go that the Texans wasted a 4th and 5th rd pick to move up for Nix. I said before the draft that Nix had more games in college with 0 tackles than he had games with at least 1 tackle. View the Nix draft thread for all those who are fans of the "Men of Girth".
