Strengths: Raw power, run blocking, pass protection, attitude/tenaciousness.

Weaknesses: Er, his arms are a little short, maybe?

Guard has arguably the least valuable customized nfl jerseys position on the field since the NFL became a pass-oriented league in 1978. But that may be changing, as Quenton Nelson himself noted at the combine.

“You have guys that are dominating the NFL right now in Aaron Donald, Geno Atkins, Fletcher Cox, that have just been working on interior guys, and you need guys to stop them,” cheap custom nfl jerseys Nelson said. “You talk to quarterbacks, and they say if a D-end gets on the edge, that’s fine, they can step up in the pocket and they can throw. That’s what I give: a pocket to step up in. And I think I also help the offense establish the run through my nastiness, and establishing the run also opens up the passing game.”

The closest comparison to Nelson is not nfl custom jerseys cheap Zach Martin or Larry Allen, or even legendary Patriots guard John “Hog” Hannah. It’s Juggernaut, the Marvel Comics character who is as strong as the Hulk but less random. Like Juggernaut, nothing stops Nelson, so he can obliterate anything in his path when run-blocking. And yes, Andrew Luck will be able to step up in the pocket, knowing there’s a nigh-invulnerable force of nature protecting him. (We’re assuming Luck will someday throw a real football again, because assuming anything else leads almost immediately to gibbering madness.)cheap customized nfl jerseys

Juggernaut’s only real weaknesses is telepathy; Professor X is his stepbrother, you see, and—(50,000 words of comic-book continuity deleted. You can thank us later. –Eds). cheap nfl custom jerseys Nelson’s only real weakness is a perception that his position lacks value. But he’s an instant upgrade for the Colts line, making this a great pick.

Grade: A
