The Colts took 22-year old DT Drake Nevis out of LSU with the 87th overall pick (3rd round) of the 2011 NFL Draft. Nevis is a tad on the light side at 6’0″, 291 pounds for a tackle. He makes up for his lack of size with speed off the snap and good effort. Nevis played in 13 games (all starts) for LSU last season and he had 56 tackles, 13 tackles for a loss, 6 sacks, batted down 1 ball, forced 3 fumbles and he recovered 1 fumble. Nevis played in 45 games (17 starts) in his four years at LSU and he had 139 tackles, 31.5 tackles for a loss, 10 sacks, batted down 5 balls, forced 4 fumbles and he recovered 1 fumble. Nevis will likely get onto the field right away for the Colts as this was a solid pick.
