David Nelson is a long shot to get drafted. He is simply too slow to get any separation in the NFL. Not only is he slow but he lumbers coming out of his breaks and really loses a lot of speed. He can only be used on short passes where he can use his size to shield away defenders or in the redzone where he excels. He is a good leaper and does a great job of high pointing passes and if given the chance could be quite a good guy to go to on the goal line.

1-poor, 2-weak, 3-above average, 4-very good, 5-elite
