Draft Rewind 2011 - Drake Nevis - Indianapolis Colts

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about DRAKE NEVIS: LSU, 6007 294 5.06. Started 17 games in his career. At LSU, the Tigers rotate 7-8 defensive linemen to keep them fresh. Nevis is a disruptive impact player with lateral quickness. He can make plays when he’s blocked. There were times where we observed that he was double-teamed, held, and tackled. Quick hands to stack, spin, and separate. Pushes the play deep. Quick arm over. Fights through blockers to make a play. A player with a fierce sense of competition. Loves to compete. Mentally and physically tough. Plays with nimble feet and clogs up the running lanes. Constricts the hole. The key to his game appears to be a low pad level with good hand quickness. Rare hand use. Explosive first step quickness to force inside pressure. Tough for a center to single block him. Plays with great emotion and intensity. A good effort player who finishes plays with quickness and speed. Multiple move player with club, arm over, and rip. Because of his height, he will get hung up at times on his arm over move. Works from short to long pursuit. Good angles. An ideal under and nickel tackle. 2010 stats: 56 tackles, 13 TFL, 6 sacks, 3 FF, 1 FR. Edge speed:left 2.24, right 2.47. OSR:12/25. Second/third round. (A- 31 1/2, H-9 3/8, BP-31, 10-1.67).
