    If we didn't trade up and stayed put, we could have grabbed Crichton @47 and Nix in the 3rd.

    Not sure how I feel about this. Did we make the right move?

    They really wanted the the RDE, and didn't feel there were any others left after DLaw. Crichton is seen as more a LDE and Nix doesn't fit our scheme.

    I wanted him too (though the cost still irks me a bit), just wanted to see how others felt about it.

    I am fairly sure that you can have Nix line up at the cocked nose and have him blow up the C like the scheme calls for.

    Or Jernigan and brooks. Or Ealy and Martin.

    I mean we were trying to trade into the first, so we must be really high on Lawrence

    Not Nix.

    Maybe Jernigan and Martin though
    Or a ton of other combos

    Guess well see. If Lawrence is better than it's not the end of the world.
    They need to hit in some the remaining 8 picks

    I'm fairly sure that he isn't the type of guy they want. The one big guy they like is Ellis

    I don't think he would be a 3 down player here but its the third round.

    Being a ND fan, I like Nix. He was great as a junior, but didn't impress me a whole lot last year. Needs to drop weight and get in better shape. Think if he was playing in our scheme, he'd have to come off the field a lot.

    that's a thought for sure but was Crichton a strong or weak end.Nix wasn't a fit but that doesn't mean I wouldn't
    like him on my team.

    Fairly decent record lately when they target a specific player with the exception of Claiborne but the ship hasn't sailed on him yet either.

    Nix is not a scheme fit in the 4-3 under at all. He's a pure zero technique.
