Louis Nix is a big boy and he has some trouble controlling his weight during the borad jump at the NFL Combine. It was one of the best moments during the combine ever!

Check out this animated gif of him toppling over:

Louis Nix is one of the top nose tackles available in the draft. Luckily he won’t need to jump from a standing position many times in a game. That would be terrible. He would fall over backwards and roll down the windows every time. It would be incredible.

Nix is a big body that can handle multiple linemen at the nose tackle position. He is projected to be taken in the first round of the draft and will be looked at by a number of teams that run a 3-4 base defense. He fits perfectly as a nose tackle in that defense.  He has been impressive in his college career and should get a lot of interest in the draft.
