Positive: Versatile defensive back who is best facing the action. Displays a burst of closing speed, gives effort defending the run, and wraps up when tackling. Solid speed to the sidelines. Constantly around the ball carrier.
Negative: Shows indecision in his game and hesitates reacting to receivers moves off the line. One-speed defensive back who cannot recover. Average ball skills.
Analysis: Nelson significantly improved last season but possesses marginal size/speed numbers and does not have the ball skills to make up for athletic deficiencies. He's a special teams player and potential back up in a zone system."
