BIOGRAPHY: Junior college transfer who became a full-time starter last season, winning All-Conference and All-American honors after producing 51/6/5. Started four games the prior season and posted 46 tackles.

POSITIVES: Athletic centerfielder with tremendous ball skills. Displays outstanding sideline-to-sideline range, shows good speed to the flanks and flashes on the scene, playing with a large degree of suddenness. Diagnoses the action and possesses a good sense of timing.

NEGATIVES: Not strong at the point of attack. Misreads assignments on occasion.

ANALYSIS: Displaying tremendous improvement in his overall game last season, Nelson is a top-flight free safety with the ability to be placed over receivers in man-coverage situations. Needs to fine-tune his instincts, yet should quickly break into a starting lineup.

PROJECTION: Middle First Round
