Texans selected Notre Dame NT Louis Nix with the No. 83 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Nix (6-foot-2 3/8, 331) made 30 starts at nose tackle in Notre Dame's 3-4, tallying 14 career TFLs and 2.5 sacks. He missed five games during the 2013 campaign with a knee injury that was repaired surgically by Dr. James Andrews in November. A true two-gap "zero technique" in the Vince Wilfork mold, Nix possesses big hands (10"), relatively long arms (33") for his size, and the playing mentality of a run-stuffing space eater. He may have to sub out on passing downs early in his career, but is quick enough to collapse the pocket with brute power. Nix slipped in the draft after a disappointing final year in South Bend, but at surface level is a perfect fit for Romeo Crennel's scheme. The Texans have an awfully impressive front seven on paper.
