2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Drake Nevis, DT, LSU

Finally given an opportunity to start at LSU, Nevis had a big year for the Tigers. The defensive tackle started only four career games prior to his senior campaign, but made the most of 13 starts in 13 games in 2010. He finished fifth on the team in both solo tackles (30) and total tackles (56), but he was first in tackles for loss (13). Nevis was also second on the team in sacks with six and he recorded four quarterback hurries, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and one interception.

Nevis is an athletic interior lineman who can disrupt all kinds of offensive action in the middle of the field. He has been clocked as fast as 4.92 in the 40-yard dash and he uses that speed from start to finish on every play. He has to, after all, because he lacks the size of others at his position, especially NFL guys. Nevis stands at just 6'1'' and 285 pounds. He is strong and powerful, but he will have to put on size without giving away speed if he wants to go toe-to-toe with NFL offensive linemen. Nevis performed well at the NFL Combine, although he was not quite as impressive during LSU's pro day. He could sneak into the late first round, and anything lower than a second-round selection would be a considerable shock.
