Strong hands and punch. Knows how to finish. Enjoys punishing defenders. Superb technique as both a run- and pass-blocker. Works in tandem with teammates. Excellent field awareness in pass protection. Great size and fitness for a guard. Ideal base and always prepared to flatten blitzing defenders. Throws and pushes people around like a WWE superstar.

Conclusion

Easily the top offensive lineman in this year’s class, Quenton Nelson is well worth a premium selection in April. He should be a dominant presence on the line for many years with his combination of power, technique, and awareness.
