BIOGRAPHY: "Junior-college transfer who started at Arizona State the past two seasons, winning all-Conference honors after each campaign.
Senior totals included 64/4/6 after 64/6/7 as a junior."
POSITIVES: "Hard-hitting safety with good size best facing the action. Strong at the point, squares into ball carriers and wraps up tackling.
Displays a good burst to the play, physical, and works hard to defend passes. Aggressive in all aspects of the game, and shows
himself to be a good open-field tackler. Opportunistic and makes plays on the ball when they're thrown in his vicinity."
NEGATIVES: "Inefficient and gets caught out of position. Struggles making plays with his back to the ball. Lacks top sideline-to-sideline
range, displaying poor speed to the flanks."
ANALYSIS: "Nolan is a nice-sized athlete who could be used as a traditional strong safety or in a zone system facing the action. He
has athletic limitations, yet he does show potential as a special teams player."
