Nelson attended our open combine and impressed the coaches with his size, quickness and overall football IQ.
"Jarel has a great team first attitude. He posses great size and is very athletic. Anyone who can go under center and then pass rush off the edge is a gifted athlete. There are not too many who possess that type of range and we are excited to see him in action this season"-Director of Operations Paul Pennington.
