 School: Missouri
 Conference: Big 12
 Ht., Wt.: 5-9.5, 218

  Selected by: Tennessee Titans
  Round 5, pick 6 (142 overall)

BIO: Led the team in rushing after starting eight games last season, posting 164/792/7 on the ground, while adding 25/176/1 as a pass catcher. Sophomore totals included 89/462/5 carrying the ball.

POSITIVES: Quick-footed ballcarrier with adequate size for the inside. Sees the field, waits for blocks to develop and possesses a burst through the hole. Explosive, displays speed running in the open field with the ability to take it outside of tackle. Works runs, falls forward when tackled, and has the ability to pick up yardage off initial contact. Solid pass catcher out of the backfield. Employs effective blocking technique.

NEGATIVES: Not a decisive runner nor an instinctive football player. Misses blocking assignments and does not pick up blitzes. Cannot quickly cut back against the grain and loses balance when he must immediately change direction. Left the team after disagreements with the coaching staff in late November. Characterized as irresponsible.

ANALYSIS: Displaying flashes of big-time ability, Nash possesses solid physical skills and a good upside for the next level. That being the case, he needs more repetition and must mature as an individual to have any shot of sticking on an NFL roster.
