Notre Dame DT Louis Nix has not officially declared for the NFL draft yet, but it sure seems like that is the direction that he is going. Check out his instagram photo from yesterday. It kinds points to him saying goodbye.
He also has hired an agency to represent him today. 5 Star Athlete Management will represent him in the 2014 NFL draft. The official word has not come down yet, but it is looking pretty official at this point.
Nix is expected to be the top defensive tackle selected in the draft. He is perfect for a team that is in need of a nose tackle in a 3-4 defense. He can gobble up some blockers on defense and still find ways to make plays.
It will be interesting to see how his injury will affect his draft stock though. He is out for the rest of the year because of a torn meniscus that he suffered during the season. That injury could scare off some teams and make them go for a healthier player.
