Cowboys newly signed DT Drake Nevis should prosper from the 4-3

At LSU, Drake Nevis was a star in the 4-3 defense, and he continued to play in the 4-3 while in Indy, but thing changed for him when he went to San Diego Chargers.

In San Diego the Chargers were abusing Nevis making him play the nose, when he was not use to the position. Well the Cowboys feel they have gotten a steal, and I agree they have.

“Different style, but it’s something I’ve been a part of,” Nevis said. “It’s just a matter of repetition and getting it back.” He played the 4-3 at LSU and as a rookie with the Indianapolis Colts, but has been out of position for a little bit.

“He’s one of those guys that demonstrated a lot of ability to come off the ball and explosiveness when he was in college,” coach Jason Garrett said. “Oftentimes these defensive linemen get into systems that really suit them or maybe don’t suit them quite as much. We feel like playing in this scheme we can get him back to playing the way he played in college, coming off the ball, playing with good leverage and being a destructive force, both in the run game and pass game.

So my question is, do you think the Cowboys might have found a Diamond in the Rough?
