Houston Texans trade up for Louis Nix

The Houston Texans moved up in the 3rd round to select DT Louis Nix. The Texans are adding some big time talent onto that  defense with this draft. Nix is one of the top defensive tackles in the draft and slipped to the third round because of questions on his knee and because of his social media habits. He still is a solid football player.

Nix will join Jadeveon Clowney on the defensive side of the ball to provide a tough defensive front. Nix, J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney will be making a lot of plays for Romeo Crennel’s defense. It should be fun to watch this defense run around the field.

The Texans have put a high premium on the defensive side of the ball. I wonder what their plan is for a quarerback this season? What if they are making choices for the New England Patriots so that they can get Ryan Mallett onto their roster. What if they trade with the Patriots in order to get JImmy Garoppolo?
