Chiefs selected Oregon State CB Steven Nelson with the No. 98 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
Nelson (5'10/197) spent two seasons in the Pac-12 after transferring from JUCO, piling up eight INTs and earning second-team All Conference as a senior. Nelson primarily played zone coverage in college, but flashed man-cover skills when given exposures. He shut down Nelson Agholor (3-27-0) in 2014 and gave Jaelen Strong fits. CFF also charted Nelson with zero missed tackles last season. Fast (4.49) but not especially twitchy or agile, Nelson best projects as a zone corner in the Alterraun Verner mold. The Chiefs play press, so Nelson figures to end up as a slot cover man who initially focuses on special teams. May 1 - 11:19 PM
