The teams represented included the Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Giants, Washington Redskins, Pittsburgh Steelers, Indianapolis Colts, Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots, New York Jets, San Diego Chargers, Philadelphia Eagles, St. Louis Rams and Miami Dolphins.
Nelson measured 6-feet-6-inches and weighed 262-pounds. He also hand an impressive wingspan with a 34-inch arm length. He ran the forty in 4.95-seconds and posted a 34-inch vertical jump.
He then showed impressive hands and looked like a natural pass catcher during the practice session. Their was a divergence of opinion on Nelson, whom most thought looked like a basketball player trying to play football.
The consensus is Nelson's a three year developmental prospect who'll be on a practice squad for at least two years.
Because of this some teams have no interest in Nelson's services or investing the work required into making him a fulltime pigskin player. Yet others seem enamored with the big athlete.
Nelson spent an incredible amount of time with the Chargers, who sent their tight ends coach to watch the workout. Washington, who will be moving away from the H-back system and transitioning to a conventional tight end in their offensive sets, also spent significant time with him as did the New York Jets.
