Hey Justin,

The nordic curl is more of a knee flexion exercise, with the hip staying relatively neutral. Still targeting the hamstring but not really training hip extension. The hamstrings main actions are hip extension and knee flexion. So different exercises will target these actions differently. All have a place in training, but if your goal is targeting hip extension think of things like hip hinging, lunges, bridges, GHD, etc.
