2015 Review: What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about JJ NELSON: Alabama-Birmingham. Is a speedy (4.25/40) but diminutive receiver and return specialist, was drafted to help elevate the Cardinals’ return game which gained the fewest yards in the NFL in 2014. Last year Nelson returned 22 kicks for 843 yards, averaging 38.3 yards per return. He tallied 4 touchdowns. The former UAB Blazer averaged 10.65 yards per punt return. Nelson will need to add muscle to his 5102, 156 pound frame to hold up physically. Pro day numbers: 36/VJ, 10-7/BJ, 4.20/SS, and 7.05/3 cone.
