Pros:
– Pre-snap reads
– Technique
– Hands

Cons:
– Lack of range
– Lack of burst
– Stand up ability

Anthony Nelson is projected as a mid-round pick (3rd-5th) but in a draft class full of DE’s and EDGE guys I see him no higher than a 4th round talent. The Buccaneers might have already addressed their pass rushing needs by this time of the draft.
