Pos: 
Tough, slug-it-out defensive tackle with poor measurables. Plays with terrific pad level, keeps his feet moving and works his hands throughout the action. Flashes power in his lower body, displays the ability to split double-team blocks and gets behind the line of scrimmage to make plays. Fires off the snap, fights with his hands and holds his ground.
Neg: 
Small-area lineman with limited burst. Not much of a pass rusher.
Analysis: 
Nelson did a solid job at nose tackle for Texas, but he has three-technique tackle size and lacks the agility for that position. He has limited upside but could back up on the inside of a four-man line.
