Notre Dame’s Quenton Nelson Heads Offensive Line Class

Notre Dame’s Quenton Nelson Heads Offensive Line Class

Entering the critical NFL Combine 2018, Irish guard Quenton Nelson heads an average group of offensive linemen. Nelson is a blue chip prospect who has excelled for the Irish since starting early in his career.  Since his days at Red Bank Catholic High School where he earned a four and five star recruit ranking,  I have been very familiar with Nelson as a potential NFL prospect. He is a highly developed prospect and maybe the most NFL ready player in this entire draft class. He has a massive frame with long arms and very strong hands which he uses  very well to initiate contact and gain control of an opponent. He is an outstanding pass protector who anchors well and slides easily to either side. Capable of moving along the line and making the short traps and pulls with the agility to get to the 2nd level and fit on defenders.  Type with few flaws and probably warrants a top ten selection.
