Scouting Report on Louis Nix

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Game setting, Campby Barry Every - 08/31/2009
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityDivision I Player
  • Lateral PursuitDivision I Player
On the Hoof: A tad heavy but he holds his body weight well. He will physically remind fans of Ron Bratt of the Patriots.
Needs Improvement: He needs to be more consistent with his pad level because he can get controlled by smaller offensive linemen. Nix needs to improve upon his arsenal of pass-rushing moves, since he really only bull-rushes. He also needs to be on top of his conditioning and keep his weight where it currently is.
Most Impressive: Nix is very physical and a dominant force when he has low pad level at the point of attack. He has surprisingly good agility and athleticism for a big man. Knows how to extend his arms and control the opponent by steering where he wants.
Conclusion: If Nix comes into camp in shape, he will most likely play early on because he has excellent overall size and strength. Expect him to be a three-year starter with NFL potential.
