Biography: Moved into the starting lineup as a senior and posted career-high numbers of 56/13/6. Awarded all-Conference and All-American honors last year. Totaled 50/11/4 as a junior when he played in 13 games but never started.
Positives: "Explosive and athletic one-gap lineman coming off a tremendous year. Built low to the ground, explodes off the snap with a terrific first step, and fires through the gaps up the field. Keeps his feet driving on contact, plays with a high motor, and chases the action hard. Collapses laterally to defend the run, flashes initial power at the point of attack, and plays with a great amount of quickness. Can immediately change direction and alter his angle of attack and rarely knocked off his feet."
Negatives: "Undersized, engulfed at the point and struggles getting off blocks. Has difficulty beating opponents if he does not get the first step on them."
Analysis: Nevis comes off a tremendous season where he went from late round prospect into the top 50 picks of the draft. He consistently makes plays behind the line of scrimmage and would be a very good fit as a one-gap tackle or possibly a three-technique lineman.
