Scouting Report: Anthony Nelson
School: Iowa Position: Defensive End Class: Junior Height: 6-7 Weight: 275 Projected Draft Round: 3-5
A tall and lengthy defensive end, that is ideally suited to play on the end in a 3-4 as a two gapping run defender, or a left DE in the right 4-3 scheme. With his massive wing span and good core strength can lock down running lanes on either side of him, allowing linebackers to shoot the gaps and makes plays. Doesn’t have the elite burst that will make him first or early second day pick, but has excellent value for a team that is rooted in 2-gapping down linemen that want their pass rush to come from the linebackers.
