Brenton Nelson S Virginia Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
Weaknesses
  • Lacks the bulk and size to hold up against linemen inside at the next level. Will leave his feet or duck his head at times, leading to missed tackles.
  • Short stature will hurt him in jump-ball situations against taller, stronger NFL receivers.
  • Needs work on backpedaling to prevent defenders from getting behind him.
  • Has suspect instincts in coverage and needs to show better pre snap recognition.
  • Will slip off tackles and needs to finish more consistently.
