Biography: Part-time starter the past two seasons. Totaled 23/4/4 as a senior after junior numbers of 54/5.5/10.5.
Positives: "Relatively athletic college defensive end coming off a disappointing season. Plays with a good degree of explosiveness, fires off the snap with a good first step, and breaks down well, keeping his pads low to the ground. Chases the action hard, strings plays out laterally, and covers a large amount of area on the field. Uses his hands to protect himself, wedges through blocks, and works hard."
Negatives: Possesses just an average closing burst of speed. Easily out-positioned from the action by a single opponent.
Analysis: "After a solid junior season, much was expected of Nurse this year, but he was unable to deliver. He possesses the size and pass rushing skills to be a specialist at the next level if he gets his game back on track."
