i have a similar setup as you Clint.  If the backend servers are indeed 
pushing that number of requests then you should get at least that at the 
front end.

What i would look at is:

   - nginx settings (enough workers?)
   - any errors in the nginx error (file handles?)

Turn off the keep-alive settings on your JMeter test (which i believe is 
done by default anyway) so you can test on a level playing field.
