Best Prospect: Louis Nix III, DT

When you watch a game with your shoulders slumped and your head hung low in disappointment, you're going to miss a few things. No Notre Dame fan is going to go back and watch the film of that BCS Championship beatdown the Irish suffered against Alabama. But if they did, they would see a single bright spot that probably eluded their attention when they watched it live. That would be Louis Nix III, 326 pounds of pure motor, who has the size to play nose tackle in the NFL but also the quickness to be a dominant three technique. Both he and defensive tackle Stephon Tuitt are potential top-10 picks.
