Rush through the roster: #56 Clavion Nelson

Posted: June 23, 2014 in Football

Clavion Nelson is hoping to get on the field more in 2014 after appearing in just one game last season.

#56 Clavion Nelson – 6’3″ 297 lbs. – Defensive tackle – Junior – Hollywood, FL (South Broward HS)

2013: Nelson appeared in the season opener but did not record any stats. He appeared in 5 games in 2012, recording 3 tackles including 1 sack as a reserve.

2014 Bull Rush Prediction: Nelson converted from defensive end to defensive tackle 3 years ago, but the move has not improved his playing chances despite adding the necessary weight for the position. Now with the defense transitioning more to a 3-4 set and other players ahead of him at the tackle position, the chances for Nelson to get playing time could be even more limited. Nelson will need a big fall camp to get a chance for more playing time in 2014, but its going to be an uphill battle.
