Corey Nelson

School: Oklahoma
Position: OLB
Positive: Three-year starter who played in just five games last season before suffering a partially torn pectoral muscle. Finished the year with 27 tackles and 3 tackles for loss. Career-best 58 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, and 4.5 sacks came as a sophomore in 2011. Swift, pursuit linebacker best in a run-and-chase system. Displays speed in a straight line or laterally, has a tremendous closing burst to the play, and covers a lot of area. Breaks down well, effectively uses his hands, and easily changes direction. Makes plays to every area of the field, effective in space, and relatively instinctive.
Negative: Undersized and easily blocked from the action or slowed in traffic. Average coverage skills for a smaller linebacker.
Analysis: Nelson was a consistent linebacker at Oklahoma who watched his senior campaign end prematurely because of a pectoral injury. He's a one-gap, pursuit linebacker who plays with a special teams mentality.
