Scouting Report: Strengths
- He’s a creative runner with good vision in the open field. He’ll contribute as a run blocker on the perimeter. He’s also a possible return specialist.
- Runs precise routes with mostly crisp cuts. Very difficult to cover, gets separation consistently.
- He’s coordinated with soft, reliable hands, and Nesbit shows the ability to adjust to balls thrown behind him, as well as a knack for digging out low throws.
- He’s also a catch-and-run threat, a creative runner who has good vision in the open field; he’ll be an option to return kicks as well.
- He’s a fluid athlete with excellent short-area quickness; he should be able to create separation, and he has the straight-line speed to threaten down the seam.
- Turns and accelerates though top speed is good, not elite.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Nesbit seems comfortable in traffic to the point where Nesbit doesn’t make the effort to create separation.
- Inconsistent with his release off the line of scrimmage.
- Average size and power for the position; won't overwhelm with his strength.
