Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about STEVEN NELSON: Oregon State, 5101 197 4.48. Two-year starter at Oregon State after his first two seasons in junior college. From Warner Robins, GA. A two time 2nd team All-Pac 12 player. Nelson has the short area quickness and long speed to matchup with receivers. He is also a physical player against the run, leading the Beavers’ cornerbacks in tackles two years in a row. He can be trusted in any kind of role on the field. Explosive in short space, easy acceleration to top speed. Changes direction with all of his balance and body control. Light feet, explosive hips. Brings a physical nature to the field. Willingly throws his hat into the action as a run defender and consistently wraps up. Reliable open field tackler. Has the speed to stick with speed receivers downfield and the agility to stick with quicker receivers underneath. Doesn’t make a big physical impact in press coverage. Won’t redirect the receiver at the point of attack. Struggles to read routes and quarterbacks. Allows too big of a cushion in zone coverage at times. Inconsistent to anticipate the action. 2014 stats: 60 T, 2 INT, 8 PBU. BTR:left 4.71, right 4.81. OSR:12/31. Third/fourth round. (A-30 3/8, H-9 1/2, VJ-34.5, SS-4.07).
