#30 San Francisco 49ers: Louis Nix, DT ND

Rory’s Take: In the long run the Niners have to replace Smith on the defensive line and Nix can play multiple positions on a 34 defensive front including nose tackle.

Chase’s Take: Great late round pick up by the Niners who would be adding a potential long term starter at the defensive tackle position in the former Fighting Irish gap plugger.
