Oregon State senior CB Steven Nelson will draw NFL interest if he repeats his 2013 success.
The 5-foot-11, 192-pounder (4.53 forty) didn't disappoint as a touted JUCO transfer in 2013. "Nelson has a broad build for a cornerback and he uses his size and aggressive hands well to jam receivers at the line of scrimmage," wrote CBS Sports' Rob Rang. "He is too aggressive, at times, fighting with receivers as they go downfield but doesn't rely on his hands to cover due to the fact that he is a fluid athlete, who turns efficiently and accelerates smoothly. Nelson has a second-gear to close when the ball is in the air and shows excellent hand-eye coordination to make the tough interception, turning six of his 14 passes defensed a year ago into turnovers. Nelson plays the run well also, aggressively fighting through blockers and taking on bigger ball-carriers with no hesitation. He breaks down patiently and makes ball-carriers commit before closing efficiently to make the physical wrap-up tackle." Nelson had four interceptions in his first four OSU games last seaso Jun 21 - 4:09 PM
