Coach Arians likes what he sees in DE Anthony Nelson. It’s not quite set in stone where he’ll fit in with the front 7, but when asked Arians had this to say,
“Don’t know until pads, but he’s everything we thought we drafted. It’s the same position when we go into nickel he’ll be our defensive end.”
The Bucs took Nelson in the fourth round of this year’s draft out of Iowa. He will be a pass rusher, but whether it’s at DE or as a rush LB is still up in the air. Wherever Nelson ends up, at 6’7″ and 270 lbs, look for him to be a relentless pass rusher with a motor that never stops.
