Iowa DE Nelson enters draft; others stay … Iowa junior DE Anthony Nelson has become the latest underclassmen to announce that they will be entering the 2019 draft. Nelson has imposing size at 6-6, 270 with decent strength and agility. He’s also a solid all-around end who had 45 tackles last fall including 9.5 sacks and 4 other tackles for loss, although he still lacks the pure speed and athleticism to rank as more than a mid-round prospect at best. At the same time, a number of other juniors indicated they will be staying in school including rising Auburn OT Prince Tega Wanogho. The returnees also include a quartet of Utah players including RB Zach Moss, DE Bradlee Anae, DT LekiFotu, and CB Julian Blackmon.
