Nelson is a really physical cover cornerback who does a great job of getting inside of the receiver and timing his break up on the pass. The aggressive DB has super quick hips and changes direction fast, which makes him really hard to get beat deep. Nelson is an outstanding tackler who really closes in on the ball carrier before he can make any sort move up field. The 2018 cornerback is a big time sleeper in the class of 2018 and was very close to pulling off a lot of interceptions year last fall. He needs to finish off those plays. Senior year he is flysing to the football and the improved weight lifting numbers is producing even bigger hits.
