I think Tuitt is a fav of a lot of us in the second round. I don't think he makes it out of the first. If we go QB I could see Us going TE or OT In the second. I don't see OD being brought back.

Texian, the above post is where all this confusion comes from. It's not internally consistent, unless you have a very poor opinion of Crennel's defense and expect him to fail. To say someone is a "fit" for a defense, and then to follow it up with saying they are not good at the primary purpose of their role is odd, to say the least.

Did you mean to put a "not" in the first sentence?

I have explained what I saw in games that I watched. Me, personally I would pass on Nix. I am not sure he will as effective as Raji who I consider barely average and ordinary. However, there are many here who disagree with me and think Nix will be a solid NG.

Regarding Tuitt, I watched Tuitt in the same 3 games I watched Nix. In those games I noticed Tuitt played straight up and lost or played without leverage. To often Tuitt was taken out of the play by the opposing TE. Tuitt didn't appear to play with much strength. It will be interesting to see how Tuitt test at the combine, particularly his 225 reps, broad jump and vertical. I hope this clarifies my explanation, sorry for the confusion.
Excellent clarification. You may know but for much of 2013 he was recovering from off season groin hernia repair and the excessive weight he picked up not working out. Again consider him as how he will look in 2015 as I mentioned about Bortles. While we have to hit on our picks (I want at least 3 starters and could get 4-5)2014 is if not a throw away season as far as wins but definitely a "get it together" year. Anything better than 6-10 is gravy for the chicken.

I should have said, "Nix's size" and then added "However"

This is why I wasn't adamantly opposed against Nix because of his medicals and tried to leave the door open. Based on what I saw it was No Thanks. I see now that was confusing.

No it was not sarcasm of Crennel, I have explained, see above. I really have no idea how well or how bad a Crennel defense is going to perform.

Default Re: Nose Tackle Louis Nix

Nix was able to command double teams in 2012 and was dominant. He got hurt in 2013 and didn't play as well in 2013. I like the fact that Nix is a gamer, playing a few games on a hurt kne to try to help his team. For those that don't like Clowney's putting his family before his team, you should love Nix. I want both Clowney 1-1 and Nix 2-33 if he checks out and the building of the DL will be complete for the next decade.

It does worry me that Nix will be carrying so much weight on a surgically repaired knee.

Is there a link to this or this just your rationale for why he didn't put in 100% for his team this year?

Perhaps CNNND can offer input. Unless he can be said to be ready to play game one, I would not draft him.

Back in the middle of December, in response to a request, I posted this about Nix.......it still stands.:

Quote:
As far as Nix, no mention was made of which meniscus/menisci were torn. But, if accurate, some reports reveal that the surgery involved "repair" not "excision." Repair is a harder longer recovery. What bothers me the most about Nix is that he has been dealing with a chronic case of patellar tendonitis.......the predecessor of patellar tendon rupture, ala our own Cushing and Newton. Being a big man, the condition and potential of rupture is more concerning. If he does eventually rupture, expect a long recovery closer to Newton (who was rushed back and not given enough time to completely rehab)........and we know how that's turned out.
I don't know what 2nd knee surgery the article is talking about........Nix has only undergone ONE knee surgery. As far as the platelet rich plasma injections........(outside of experimentation and investigational purposes) they are strictly for tendonitis problems........there is no evidence in the medical literature that demonstrates that healing of a damaged meniscus cartilage is truly facilitated with such injection. Same for ligaments. For that matter, there is no study in the literature that has been proven that it improves tendonitis in any area but the elbow (extrapolation to other tendons have been just that........extrapolation). Further research in the future may confirm that the effects can be expected in tendonous structures in general.

yes, this is why his stock has tumbled but try to convince a fellow poster who has wanted a legitimate run plugger in the middle of Texan 3-4 for, I don't know how long, maybe inception? then you get a good idea why Ra'Shede Hageman stock has soared even though he looked lost @ times during Senior Bowl week. Otherwise Nix is twice the prospect.

I was comparing him to Watt as far back as last year. He put on some bad weight this year and lost some explosiveness and didn't produce as much. Needs to shed that weight to max out his athleticism.

My rationale

And a very good reason. millions of $$$$$ were at stake.

Would you risk getting injured and losing $$$$$. I know wouldn't.

Understood, but nix is a very good/great prospect and without those knee issues there's no way Nix would be available at 33. He probably wont be available at 33 anyway.

I wont get into a pissing match about nix. I am not sure who said it, but he looks great physically as a nt, but look at the games. For as much as they say mccullers was there, the bama inside with womack and company could not move mccullers. People knocked teo in that championship game, but look further and you will see nix getting blown off the ball which allowed the ol get on the lbs. Ray lewis is one of the greatest ever, but post adams and sirigusa, he was on skates until they drafted ngata. Its vital even in 1 gap to control the gaps.

If it were me and thinking about versitility, I like kelcy quarles. Hes not 330, hes closer to 305, but his frame at 6'4 can easily hold 20lbs. He has long arms, good power and he can also play the nt or 5 tech. Hes probably a mid 3rd to mid 4th. He would give the texans alot of flexibility up front to morph into different fronts. Jmo

I like McCullers a lot too.

The attention given to Clowney made Quarles look like a great prospect. IMHO

I would take Quarles in the 4th as a 5 tech. He's going to test very well at the combine.

Disagree about clowney enhanciing quarles. He made plays when clowney was dogging it. He made plays vs clemson in clowneys 4.5 sack game that allowed clowney to get those sacks. As I stated before, when a guy was not as productive as clowney was last yr,teams aren't paying that much attention to him. The gamecocks got pro prospect on that dl and in secondary.
