Roosevelt Nix Scouting Report

May 22, 2013

DE/OLB ROOSEVELT NIX 511 250, Kent State

Unique, freakish handful with top production but lacking a prototypical positional fit.

ATHLETICISM

Super explosive with elite closing speed.

Very good change of direction.

STYLE/SKILL

Very physical and powerful at the point of attack.

Excellent first step off the ball.

Plays with a naturally low pad level; plays lower than anyone in the trenches.

Consistently disengages quickly and violently with upper body strength and hand use.

Often rushes from the interior as a three-technique and from the five-technique in the 3-4.

Is an elite interior penetrator; is a mismatch with his combination of leverage, athleticism, and power.

Utilizes a devastating swim move and spins.

Top motor, chasing plays downfield.

ISSUES

Versatile but also lacks a defined, projected NFL position.

Squatty build. Lacks length and probably lacks the bulk to hold up full time on the interior at the next level.
