  • Is Drake Nevis a 1st Round Pick?

    Is Drake Nevis a 1st round pick?

    His tape and his explosion are both very impressive, but his size at what I will guess comes in at 6'1" 295lbs. at the combine is a concern.

    To me he looks a lot like Brandon Mebane and if he plays like Mebane he would be worth a late 1st round pick.

    The problem is that he is a rotational 4-3 DT at best in the NFL, and you typically don't want to spend a first round pick on a rotational DT.

      I doubt it. Other than maybe Seattle at 25 I don't know who would take him that early.

        Indy? Seems like a classic Colts DT.

          Doubt it. There are more pressing needs and Polian doesn't really value DTs enough to take a guy like Nevis in the mid-1st round.

            I think he is underrated. The Mebane comparison is very astute, but I think he might even be quicker and stronger then Mebane.

            As far as draft stock goes though, I think he has about a 30 percent chance of landing in Round 1.

              Cover 2 teams like the Bears at 29 might look at him?

                  love him from 25-32 hes probably in discussion for 3-5 best DT in the draft. IMO hes better than Liuget and a step behind paea. very explosive 3 tech and 3rd down pass rusher. he doesnt seem to be getting much praise from mayock which raises a red flag though.

                    If I had to guess, I'd say no. The demand for 4-3 DT in the first round just isn't very high.

                      Talented prospect, but I still think his stock is in the 2nd right now

                        The 4-3 isn't popular enough and most of the good 4-3 teams have more pressing needs, so probably not a first-rounder, but on a team like Indianapolis I could see him developing into a very valuable player. Maybe a team like Tennessee would take a chance on him in the second round assuming they don't sign or trade Albert Haynesworth for that three-technique role. It's possible that Mike Munchak won't want to take on a risky personality like Haynesworth in his first year of coaching - he's already going to have his hands full.

                          I dont see Seattle taking a DT that early, in order they would probably grab:

                          Jake Locker
                          Jimmy Smith
                          Ryan Kerrigan
                          Gabe Carimi
                          Jon Balwdwin

                            I would love it if Nevis fell to the Colts in 2nd round but that would be wishful thinking for most Indy fans.

                              I know that CJ is drooling over the Saints drafting him in the 1st.
