Ourlads' Profile:

2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about NICK NELSON: Wisconsin, 5105 200 4.51. Junior entry from Glenarden, MD. Three-year starter, two at Hawaii. Transferred prior to the 2016 season. Shows a smooth pedal with good spacing to maintain cushion. As a press corner occasionally doesn’t sync his jam with his footwork and will give up leverage. Quick to recover and can be physical at the line, disrupting routes. Shows good speed to stay in phase on vertical routes and mirror ability on intermediate routes. Does a good job locking a receiver out from the ball up the field. Good ball skills for the pass break getting his hands to the catch point. Occasionally gets a little handsy and can be prone to holding calls. Backed off he shows some stutter step on plant and drive and lateral transitions. Quick reacting but false steps occasionally keeps him from a play by causing too much separation. Good zone skill showing the ability to reroute as a hard corner and react to multiple routes in a zone. Closes void areas well. Good toughness attacking a stalk block with ability to use his hands to shed. Solid tackling skills and is willing in run support. Will also contribute on special teams’ coverage and as a punt returner. 2017 stats: 35 T, 21 PBU, 2 QBH, 1 BK, 24-206 PR (1 TD). BTR:left 4.68, right 4.76. OSR:18/41. Third/fourth round. (A-30 3/4, H-9 1/ 4, VJ-36.5, SS-4.08).
