"The good thing about this offense and this defense that these guys are going to use is they can adapt to what the player can do," said Nix. "So we’re not going to draft a player to fit a mold that we think with this offense. They’re going to adjust the offense to what the quarterback can do or what an offensive tackle can do. I think it has that much flexibility. I was impressed with that on both sides of the ball, and that makes the job a little easier for us."
