    Drake Nevis

    Looked like a solid 1st round pick vs. Bama today...watch him f up Florida pretty good, too. In fact, I like Kelvin Sheppard a lot, too.

    BTW, James Carpenter is underrated. He mauls people...

    nevis is the fastest rising senior DL....5th rounder coming into the year and now a solid second round pick....Al Woods type of rise X2

    I never liked Woods- always had this air of underachievement about him.

    Nevis is lightning quick though, great fit as a 3T in the 25-50 range.

    I fell in love watching him play that game yesterday. He just had an incredible game, against Alabama no less.

    But yeah, probably doesn't fit a 3-4.

    Thing is though, I'd be careful when it comes to strictly considering this defense a 3-4. We actually play more snaps with 4 down lineman then 3 down lineman it seems, and Rex would play any defense under the sun if he thought it would get him a stop. Baltimore played both fronts during his time there. I don't think you can rule out a scenario where we take a 4-3 lineman like Nevis, and play more 4 man fronts if Rex thinks that is his best option.

    Iunno...He's not dissimilar to Luis Castillo as a prospect. I'm a fan so I'm not 100% against him in this system.

    I could see him as a pass rushing specialist inside on third down, something we really dont have right now...

    Castillo had much better size and growth potential....Nevis is not even 6'1''...

    Damn, then statement firmly retracted.

    That said, I rarely like a pure 4-3 DT, but Nevis is one I do like. I'm sure some 3-4 team might give him a look as a Myron Pryor type if he fell out of the first 3 rounds.

    Id rather see us go DE then DT in the 1st round.

    Allen Bailey from Miami has played both DE and DT in college and could be a nice edge rusher for us from the DE position. Not a grinder-type 3-4 end, but big enough to play that position for Rex.

    Wouldnt mind seeing Mark Herzlich in the 2nd either. Went to BC, so being a bit of a homer, but the kid will be down due to his leg, and is perfect for the 3-4 as he can rush the passer, and is excellent in coverage.

    100% true, this is the player I am most looking forward to seeing at the Senior Bow.
