|National Football League Draft Profile|
|Jonathan Nelson |
|Team||St. Louis (ATL)|
|Selection||27 (229 overall)|
|High School||Summitt (Arlington, Texas)|
|Two time All-Big 12 Honorable Mention (2009 and 2010), despite starting just 17 games in his career at Oklahoma...Started all 14 games as a senior, tallying 102 total tackles, two INTs and two forced fumbles...Lacks ideal size, but plays bigger...Supports the run well...Solid football instincts...Overpursues at times due to his aggressive play...A tweener type, who lacks the ball skills to be a true cover corner or the size to be a hugely successful NFL safety. |
