    We got 6 #1/2's invested in our front 7

    DE - Cam, Tuitt

    OLB - Worilds, Jarvis

    ILB - Timmons, Shazier

    And FWIW, Nose Tackle, arguably "the most important position" in our scheme, we got an UDFA.

    Nose Tackle is becoming less important because we are playing a higher percentage of our downs in sub packages with 5 or 6 DBs. That is why Tuitt is so much better a choice than Nix woudl have been

    Nix is so overrated, and Lazy. He is the next Terrence Cody at BEST! Cam Thomas is a tested Vet, and better then Nix could ever be. So all the Nix Lovers please stop with the nonsense that we should have drafted him.

    I read at NFL.com on Nix that he only put up 23 reps at 225, which is horrible

    Stat I saw was that the nose tackle is on the field 35-40% of the plays.

    I wasn't a Tuitt fan, but it proves Colbert's comment (about being the deepest draft in years)... Tuitt was #45, and has way more ceiling and the same floor, as pick #30 (Hood) had.

    I'd much rather have Tuitt than Nix. Fatbody NTs in today's NFL are becoming rare.
