2014 Da Bears Draft Thread
We needed a new thread for the new draft.
My thoughts on why we should draft Louis Nix with the 14th overall selection. As long as he checks out physically, he is a powerful force at the point of attack that can collapse the pocket. I have heard that there are some concerns about his health but I am going to assume that he is healthy. First off, Nix's strength at the point of attack will really help our run defense. He can take on two blocks and hold his area which will help stop those gashes up the gut of our defense. Secondly, although he is not an athletic freak like Melton was, he isn't a horrible pass rusher. He has a good bull rush move, and with some coaching could develop some more pass rushing moves. Third, I have heard a lot about us moving to a hybrid defense sometimes playing a 3-4 look. If this is true, Nix would give us a nose tackle in this formation, something I think we would lack otherwise.
If his stock ends up lower than 14 I wouldn't mind trading down a bit to get him either. An extra 3rd or 4th rd pick never goes amiss.
Whitney Mercilus will be a better and more productive player than Shea McClellin
