Question about Quenton

Recommended Posts

I watched a ton of film on this kid and I honestly can't recall him ever being man-handled by a defender. He seems to always keep his guy in place or just runs right through the guy. Every play I watched him and another offensive lineman double team someone, they completely taken the defender out of the play. Him and Kelly together is going to be fun to watch. 

 

Is there any video of someone simply getting the better of Nelson?

The only one I remember was Nelson versus Chubb and it wasn't so much Chubb as it looked like Nelson slipped a bit.

I saw some of Nelson/McGlinchey vs Chubb. McGlinchey vs Chubb was fun to watch but whenever they had Nelson help with the double team, Chubb couldn't do anything at all. I feel like McGlinchey would be better off at RT in the NFL.

I watched a lot of tape on him too, including some complete game tapes, and I sure didn't see anyone get the better of him. Once in a while, you'll see a guy playing off of his block and making a tackle on a RB after a short gain, but even that is rare. AS CSM just said, that one play against Chubb looked like a slip, and that's gonna happen. Most of the guys he blocks stay blocked -- or planted. This kid is something special.

Man, Nelson sure did open up some nice holes in that clip. He mainly went against the opposing DT's or swung to the outside to blow a block (Which he's exceptional at doing) He's 6'5 and around 330 already as a rookie, which is very promising since I don't think he will need to bulk up to dominate NFL Defensive Linemen. The more I watch of him the more I fall in love with the guy and he's already NFL ready.

What jumps off the tape at you is how Nelson never eases up on his assignment. Even when the play is going to the other side, or has gone past him, he keeps imposing his will on the defender, all the way to the whistle. That has to be frustrating and demoralizing for a defender to have to face that all day.

He has yet to face (in a full, padded way) the biggest challenge Colts' player come up again every year...the turf at the Colt's practice facility.

I like how at 0:07 of the video, right off the bat you see Quenton actually whiff when he tries to get his hands on the interior DLineman, but even though he misses with his hands, he trips the guy then falls backward and just sits on him.  That's good Reverse TBagging technique.

 

NOBODY gets the better of Quenton Nelson.  Or puts him in a corner.

Nobody.

Love clip #2.  Now THAT is superior field awareness!  I don't know that I have ever seen a lineman pick up a blitz that deep.

Really interested to see how he does this year because next year (barring injury this year) he is going to be even BETTER!

First one looks like some sort of WWE move.  

 

Second one is great mental awareness.

 

Luck should feel a lot more comfortable in the pocket with this man in front of him.

Gosh damn clip #2 is just vicious .... #1 is good as well but holy crap I’m excited now. I didn’t. Are if we had gotten Chubb or Nelson but I think we got the better pick!

He is field smart. He just looks to make a play every snap.

Put on the Miami tape. RJ McIntosh got the better of him several times, but overall even in this blowout he was dominating his matchups.

One scouting video I watched explained that Nelson practices martial arts.... and that it helped his balance, agility and hand striking.

 

It definitely shows as he threw that defender around like a sack of potatoes.

Those two highlights show why Nelson was rated so highly.  A lot of his run blocking gets on the highlight reel because let's face it that's more exciting then pass blocking.  But pass blocking is obviously extremely important and Nelson is great at both.

Arguably the most flawless NFL prospect to ever come out at any position.

Wasn't just RJ that got the better of him.  This game is concerning IMO.  He held his own often but was also beaten a fair share.  Everyone loved to talk about his ability to pull which is demonstrated several times in this game, but he rarely makes a meaningful block on the LB's.  Several of the the LB's are NFL-type guys with the starting 3 with the potential to go early in the 2019 draft, but that's hardly comforting.

 

He was a dominant piece in college, hope he's the same for the Colts

Yes - that block where he picked up the 2nd guy coming in from the right side was amazing.  No idea how he saw that coming.

 

And the body slam.  Wow. 

 

If he performs like this on a regular basis in the NFL he is definitely worth the #6 pick in my mind.

 

It all starts up front.

Can't wait to see him dominate JJ Watt :)

I saw a hilight video of vita vea (sp?) where he ran past (thru?) nelson and mcglinchy like they were stuck in cement.  

the only one i saw tho.

i like how nelson goes a lil past wistle, then stops, turns, and walks back to huddle.  defenders  look at him like "sheesh buddy" but they dont dare speak cuz he's comin right back next play.  Defenders be like " hey Q, can i pull your car around for ya after the game?"

Washington hasn't played vs Notre Dame in the last 3 years AFAIK. Maybe you mistake him with someone else? Chubb had a rep vs Nelson where he caught him off balance on a stunt inside and threw him to the side.

Yeah, this was the only questionable one. even then like you said it looked like he slipped. I seriously wish we would have drafted Notre Dame's Josh Adams as well. That kid can ball. He is patient when it comes to waiting for the hole to open and when it does, he's already in the secondary. The eagles got them selves a good RB duo with him and Penny.

    • Jax is also in win now mode..... Colts are not
    • I stand corrected he is 28.  My point was that he could have brougth some situational football here as far as a runner.  I do like the young running back that are here and wasn't expecting Hyde to come in here and be the man or something but to me the Colts are missing that little element that they had with Frank Gore.  Teams had to respect that the Colts just might just try to run to ball  inside the ten yard line.  
    • Seriously... Watch this. And when they focus on just the 2 boys, mute the video and read the op. Syncs up almost too perfectly     
    • Oh, on that we agree, just stating the facts, not saying I support him on it.  lol
    • OG is becoming a much more demanding, athletically speaking, position than it was in the past.  The OG of your Alan Ameche Days, most likely could not play OG in today's NFL.  The league is recognizing this, and premium OG's are beginning to be paid accordingly.  The OL is vastly improved this year by most all metrics, enjoy it, their ability to keep Luck upright, aided by the new offense or not, and open running lanes, makes the hypothetical need for Darnold, or any of your other desired high draft pick QB's, just that, hypothetical.  Enjoy the season, and the fact that you got to see some awesome Football 60 years ago, That era would have been a blast to watch live.
