    I really can't understand why you would want anyone other than a QB over Nelson.

    I can understand wanting/taking a QB over Nelson but any other position/player? Not in this draft, especially a RB.

    Maybe, but some team will be lucky to have him. I wish him well on any of the other 31 teams that may pick him.

    What makes Nelson truly terrifying—especially for back-seven defensive players—is how well he moves in space. For a big man, he makes pulling to the second level look effortless. Take this play from the Irish’s 20-19 loss to Georgia in September. Nelson pulls from his left guard spot, hunkers down, and sends an unfortunate slot cornerback airborne. Nelson locking onto a defensive back in the open field is reminiscent of a great white shark targeting a helpless seal. One is a perfect machine of destruction; the other doesn’t see what’s coming until it’s too late.

You don't want an o-lineman to set the edge, you want him to provide a block which gives your back a chance to read that and cut off of it. Whether that's blocking a player in or sealing him out doesn't matter so much as he's making the block. And preferably you'd like him to power through his block and keep going.

    If the biggest knock on him is that he dips his head too fast in open space, that means we're talking about a really excellent lineman. Usually o-lineman have issues in footwork, strength, ability to anchor etc. Dipping his head too soon in open space is a minor minor problem, and that can be coached out of him quickly.

    ideally we could bring in a functional swing tackle so we could do 6-oline like musgrave liked to do in oakland but i think that interior would still be able to open holes big enough they couldn't stop us. i mean thats not gonna change next year regardless? we don't need a high WR more rotational depth alot of the better slots are mid to late round guys.

    i am seeing james washington, micheal gallup, christen kirk and anothony miller listed as 2-3 round WR if any of them drop to late teh second or our pick in the third they would be a good a addition to our group.

    Oh trust me...I would be jumping up in the air, spilling beer on myself if we grab him. Just saying.
