2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Drake Nevis



Strengths:
  • Penetrator and play maker
  • Explodes off snap
  • Tough, aggressive and hard working
  • Keeps his motor running
  • Pass rushing threat
  • Very strong and plays violent
  • Good tackler



    Weaknesses:
  • Not ideal height or weight
  • Short arms are a liability
  • Limited starting experience
  • Likely only fits 4-3

    Summary: Drake Nevis was not able to compete at the Senior Bowl with a minor foot injury. There is really nothing comparable in the draft process to competing against other high level prospects so it is unfortunate he was unable to do so. He was surrounded by a lot of future NFL players on the defensive line at LSU which prevented him from gaining more starting experience. His value is as a disruptor and penetrator who can wreak havoc, probably as a rotational player in a 4-3. He is unlikely to stifle the run and will need to be supported by complementary players.

    Player Comparison: Trevor Laws. The obvious link here is being undersized, but both guys showed the ability to get through traffic at the college level with similar speed. Nevis is more of a pass rusher and certainly will not record his first sack in his third season as Laws did this year.
