INDIANAPOLIS -- While the CBSSports.com mock drafters have former Notre Dame defensive tackle Louis Nix being drafted anywhere from No. 12 overall to No. 21, what isn't in question is the quality of the performance he put on while conducting his media interview Sunday.

Basically, he was a funny man.

A quick sampling:

On why he lost 23 pounds since he started training for the combine (he measured in at 6-foot-2 and 331 pounds):

"I enjoy my weight. But people wanted me down, so I lost it ... My stomach doesn't stick out as much. That's nice. I just feel sexier."

On if he'll stay slimmed down after he's drafted:

"If they want me to stay, I'll stay. If they want me to get sexy, I've got it."

When a reporter asked how his knee, the source of some concern, is feeling:

"How's the knee? It's fantastic. How's your knee?"

On how the team interviews were going:

"I was starstruck by Pete Carroll. I talked to Mike Tomlin. [John] Harbaugh, he was kind of nice. Sorta."

As you can see, Nix just looked like he was happy to be here.
