Here's a video showing reverser deployment prior to nose wheel touch-down.

YouTube - SAS MD82 landing

As long as you don't have excessive pitch, there is nothing preventing you taking reverse prior to nose wheel touch-down.

I know on the F100/F70, they also take reverse prior to nose-wheel touch-down.

You try and avoid touching the brakes though prior to nose-wheel touch-down. It can make it quite uncomfortable otherwise.
