Last season the 9ers had to rely on Jerod-Eddie at NT when their primary guys were injured. I really think they need to finally bite the bullet and draft a legit NT. This would also allow Jerod-Eddie to focus on DE.
I dont think they'll move up for Nix, but there are several optionw this year after him.
My favorite target is Justin Ellis. Many sites have him going in the 4-5. I think he'll move up during the combine. Hes surprisingly nimble for a man his size. He should look good in shorts and drills.
At times he gets tremendous push collapsing the pocket. I was surprised that he was not always double teamed, and was often handled by one olineman, but I think if he started out as the 3rd NT, hed move up pretty quickly.
