The San Diego Chargers are at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis and they are looking at all the different prospects that fit for the roster. One of the players that could be a good fit for the middle of the defense is Notre Dame NT Louis Nix. Nix was teammates with Manti Te’o and would be a perfect fit as a nose tackle on defense. He could clog up the middle of the defensive line and could take on multiple blockers. He is one of the best nose tackles entering the draft.
The Chargers are going to take the opportunity today to interview Nix. The Chargers were not afraid to select his teammate Te’o last season and they could be looking at Notre Dame for another player to add onto the defensive side of the ball. Nix is expected to be selected in the first round of the draft. Some team could snatch him up before the Chargers select at pick 25, but if he is available for that selection it would be tough to go in another direction. He is a player that the Chargers defense has been looking for. He is that big body that can take on a bunch of players and he has a nice burst off of the ball.
