What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about REGGIE NELSON: Florida, 5113 198 4.53. Early
entry. Two-year starter, JC transfer. Athletic, aggressive, tough, and fast.
Similar in size to Eagles’ Brian Dawkins. A solid senior year elevated his
stock. He is a rangy sideline to sideline athlete that can cover ground quickly.
Improved his ability to read and rect. May be more learned than instinctive.
Explosive force in the secondary. Initiates contact. Physically touch and
aggressive. Intense. Body control as a tackler has improved. A competitive
athlete that goes all out and gives effort to play coverage and get in on play.
Will contribute on special teams. Will need repetitions. Will need to improve
technique in every phase of his game. Out of control as a tackler at times. Has
come a long way in a year. Previously struggled to read and react to plays in
front of him. Coming from junior college he was not a technique oriented player
and had to learn how to back pedal, keep a good base, stay in his pedal as long
as possible, and to transition out of his pedal. Footwork, run support angles,
and tackling were well below average. A raw athlete that is still developing
cover skills and reads. It was a credit to his hard work on and off the field
that he elevated his game from a late second day pick to an early first day
choice. First round. (A-33 3/4, H-8 5/8, SS-4.15, VJ-34.5).
