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.
@Coleton Carson Palmer was extended in the offseason through the 2018 season. This signals that they will probably try to get by with him at QB and improve in other areas first (for example, the offensive line). If they're lucky, they might even start losing more and improve their draft position. By the time the 2019 draft rolls around, they can draft a QB into team that has good tools to work with.
