The Ticats made four more signings on Friday: international defensive tackle Drake Nevis, international running back Ray Holley and international offensive linemen Stephane Milhim and Kevin Henry.
These feel like depth signings – the Ticats are solid at these positions – but you never know. Nevis has legit NFL experience and could provide depth behind Bryan Hall.
Here are the descriptions from the team and some video.
Drake Nevis, a 6-2, 285-pound, native of Marrero, Louisiana, was drafted in the 3rd round, 87th overall in the 2011 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts.

The 24-year-old was named a Capital One Academic First-Team All-American and All-WAC Second-Team in 2012.
Stephane Milhim , a 6-5, 215-pound, native of Pembroke Pines, Florida, started in 37 games for the University of Massachusetts Minutemen at five different positions on the offensive line. The 24-year-old signed as a free agent with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2013.
