BIO: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors after his senior and sophomore campaigns. Posted 81/1,107/14 last year. Started five games as a junior totaling 25/337/1 before a knee injury ended his season. Registered career-best numbers of 90/1,498 as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: Natural receiver becoming a lethal red-zone threat. Fluid releasing into routes, displays a sense of timing and extends to pluck the pass away from his frame. Physically defeats opponents to make the reception, then quickly transitions up the field. Comes back to the ball out of breaks and finds the open spot in the defense. Uses his large frame to shield away opponents. Effective body-catcher when necessary.
NEGATIVES: Rounds off routes and lacks quickness into breaks. More of a long-strider who takes awhile to get it going. Looks uninspired at times and must pick up blocking intensity.
ANALYSIS: A receiver with terrific physical skills, Nance did a fine job rebounding off the injury from a year ago. Possesses all the tools necessary to be a No. 2 wideout in the NFL.
