After going undrafted, Lucas Nix signed as an undrafted free agent with the Oakland Raiders (Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE)
SB Nation's Oakland Raiders blog, Silver and Black Pride, has a Q&A up with recent undrafted free agent, Lucas Nix. He answered some questions after a practice as part of the Raiders' rookie mini camp.
Nix, was expected to be taken in the draft, but that didn't happen. Naturally he was asked about it, but didn't give away much in his response.
Q: You were projected a mid-round draft pick or better but had knee injury as senior . . . did Raiders get themselves a bargain?
Nix: We'll see as it goes along.
Hard to not see getting Nix as a free agent as being a bit of a steal. And the knee injury he sustained last year probaby didn't help matters all that much. But I can see becoming a contributor in the NFL.
