Drake Nevis   #73 DT

Height: 6-1   Weight: 295   Age: 26

Born: 5/8/1989 Thibodaux , LA

College: LSU

Experience: 4th season

High School: John Ehret HS [Marrero, LA]









Draft 2011

Pick No.87

Selected By: Indianapolis Colts

Round: 3

Pick (Overall): 23 (87)

Pick Analysis: Nevis has a chance to become an active 3-techinique in a 4-3 defense with his combination of initial burst, toughness and motor. Surprisingly solid at the point of attack and against double teams despite lack of size. Has the quickness to be disruptive but doesn't have the agility or closing burst to always finish. Has some upside as a pass rusher because of his get off but again lack of top-end speed limits his productive and he's not a bull rusher. Constantly moving his hands and doesn't stop working hard until the whistle. Nevis will likely be taken on Day 2.
