This is post number 600 for NinerSickness.
Originally posted by WRATHman44:We have two good NTs already, and they combine for less than 50% of our snaps. Do you see Nix as a dominant enough pass rusher to replace Cowboy or push Tank out of the line-up?
I don't see him as a "pass rusher" per se in terms of sacking the QB, but I see him as a guy who can consistently push back the OL if he's singled and hold his ground if he's doubled. I just see him as a huge pain in the ass for offensive coordinators for a decade.
I think he could play a lot of snaps at DE but could be a Wilfork-like force at NT too. I know it's not a huge need, but I think his value is just too high to pass.
