I'm legit starting to wonder if Nelson even makes it out of the top 5. League types are already calling him the best offensive lineman (not just guard, but lineman) they've ever scouted. Ever.

BUT... they said that about Robert Gallery once too.

Robert Gallery!!!!

man, i blame the raiders for that one. he had 3 different head coaches his first four years, and four different offensive line coaches. i will go to my grave believing the raiders ruined him.

3 out of 3 of Pace's first round picks have been high athletic upside picks.

2 out o 3 of Pace's second round picks have been solid contributors to one of the lines.

Should history be our guide, we won't be drafting Nelson with the #8.

I don't think he'll be there at #8, but I guess we'll see how the rest of the process plays out leading up to the draft.

The hype around Nelson only seems to be growing.

Ummm..... I'd draft Quenton Nelson to play OT with these fucking numbers!

8. #NotreDame G Quenton Nelson
Height: 6-5
Weight: 325
Hand: 10 3/8
Arm: 33 6/8
Wingspan: 82 5/8

I told you man. Unfortunately he won't make it out of the top 5 at this point.

Are those his official measurements? What’s the minimum arm length for an OT? 33?

Pulled from the combine today, yes.

It varies but 33" for me is the absolute minimum for an OT. This dude is around 34" so I'm more than fine with it. Curious to see his lateral agility.

Gallery in college was a beast. He made Erasmus James look bad, and James was good.
