I think that's where we're going to run into problems. Louis Nix, from everything I've seen/read/watched/heard, Nix is a 2 down player. He isn't a Dontari Poe in which you can line him up at DE on passing downs as a legitimate player and see success. He's a two down, space eating player. That type of player is diminishing from the NFL and at 15th overall, getting a three down Linebacker in Mosley or a great CB prospect in Dennard or Gilbert makes more sense to me.
