Nix has keen eye for talent

With Nix back in the scouting mix with the Bills, it’s certainly a solid addition. Looking at the kind of talent that was successfully mined during his time in San Diego as player personnel director, it’s naturally the hope that he can do some of the same to augment Buffalo’s scouting efforts.

I’m guessing that’s why Buffalo’s front office, and likely Tom Modrak in particular, made Nix a National scout. Modrak likely wants Nix’s eyes on as many players as possible and as a National scout you’re not tied to one particular region of the country.

That’s not to say that a National scout is any more valuable to the staff than a regional scout, but Nix likely has so many contacts in the college game that he could walk onto almost any campus and get good, reliable information.
