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.
Mario Williams lost his starting job with Miami to Andre Branch this season and is 4 years older than Branch...and yet you have Williams listed as a 2 star FA and Branch as a 1.5 star and two spots lower. This makes little sense to me
This isnt what I think these teams should do, this is what i think they WILL do so dont be surprised when i have some guys falling which include Deshaun Watson,Dalvin Cook, and O.J Howard.
This is also based on team needs and what i think these teams will be considering.There will be explanation about the first round picks.
