BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter and Florida State�s leading tackler during his junior and senior seasons. Totals last year included 81/15/1
after 99 over/8/.5 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Nicholson has been a solid defender for Florida State, yet he lacks the size, speed and overall game to be anything other
than a backup inside linebacker for a 3-4 system in the NFL.
NEGATIVES: Marginal skills in pursuit. Too eager moving up the field, and gets caught out of position. Late reacting in coverage and
shows marginal ball skills.
ANALYSIS: Forceful run-defending linebacker best playing downhill. Quick up the field, shows a good head for the ball in run defense,
and wraps up tackling. Aggressive and makes plays in the open field.
