FINALLY. Finally, Louis Nix III got drafted. The Houston Texans took Louis Nix with the 83rd pick overall. The slide was surprising, if you look at the value that he brings, but Nix is a pure NT and a lot of teams just didn’t need that position.
With the 83rd pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans select Louis Nix, NT. Notre Dame.

Think about this for a second:
The Houston Texans trade up to the 83rd slot to grab Louis Nix. Visualize: Watt, Nix, Clowney. — Douglas Farmer (@D_Farmer) May 10, 2014
I’m really excited for Big Lou, and I’m betting that he proves a lot of teams to be short-sided and just plain dumb for passing on him.
