Comparison

Quenton Nelson Indianapolis Colts

Verified size with frame to play at 300 pounds. High level wrestler who won class 4A title as a sophomore. Brother, John, wrestlers for Navy and father and uncle played FBS football. Plays right guard and projects as interior player in college. Had dominant junior season. Physical and plays with nasty streak. Athleticism shines through consistently, and flashes the most pulling. Excellent flexibility throughout frame and has elite body control. Able to bend and win leverage battle. Consistent hand placement allows to get inside on defensive linemen. Strong initial punch. Remains engaged while driving legs to dominate reps. Gets to the second level quickly. Frequently overwhelms opponents in run game. Sits comfortably with wide base in pass pro. Able to stop defender with initial punch. Is sometimes stationary and relies on superior strength rather than sliding laterally in pass pro. Will need to add upper body mass and strength. High-level multi-year starter at elite college program. First round NFL draft potential.
