Overview:

Nelson, who finished his career at Notre Dame, has great size, is a good run blocker, and he opens holes up for his backs. He gets a good push on the defensive line, and he does not get pushed around that easily. He is a tough nosed player, and has good instincts. He is also a good pass blocker, a mauler, very athletic, and is very powerful. He also does a good job of resetting his legs, and stopping defenders. He easily pushes around defenders, and he is very active using his hands to get leverage. He also does a good job of bending his knees, and showing his athleticism. On the other hand, he has some issues with speedy defenders flying by him, and he does not have the best speed, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I see Nelson being a top 10 pick, and the first guard taken.
