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.
The Packers have had serious injury issues at CB. We have one of the best CB positional coaches in the NFL, that turns UDFA's into gold on a regular basis. We drafted Damarious Randall (positional switch) in the 1st Round and Quinten Rollins (late sport transition) in the 2nd Round. Both will get better, and I highly doubt we put yet another high pick into the secondary (also have HHCD in the 1st at Safety). We currently have 3 CB's on IR and Randall and Rollins have both been hurt. Of course, I'm talking about the position over the prospect. The Packers should look elsewhere from CB.
