2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about QUENTON NELSON: Notre Dame, 6050 325 5.30. The fourth-year junior from Holmdel, NJ red-shirted in 2014. He started at left guard for three straight years and ended his career as a unanimous All-America, the 34th in school history. He is competitive, intense, patient, athletic, and explosive in his play. The flexible and stout blocker locks up and controls his target. Moves his feet on contact and can root an anchor defensive lineman out of the running lane. This big man can really move. When he pulls he has good body control and recovery balance in space. He has also been noticed driving a defender 10-plus yards down the field. In today’s football, pass protection is the most important skill of an offensive lineman and this wide-bodied athlete has quickness, change of direction, and natural body control. Demonstrates attitude and aggression to engage initial contact with base, balance, and knee bend. Plays square to shadow a rusher and anchor a bull rush. He is smart and aware enough to help his tackle and center as needed. Will be a week one starter and is almost a sure thing to have a long and successful career. Did not run at Combine, his choice. First round. (A-33 3/4, H-10 3/8, BP-35, 10-DNP).
