Miami Hurricanes OT Zion Nelson seen over 20 faculty soccer gamers
The development of Miami Hurricanes against Zion Nelson is expected to culminate in the first round of the NFL draft in 2022 by some analysts and Boy Scouts. Nelson was named by CBS Sports’ Ben Kercheval as one of the 20 players featured in college football in 2021, according to 207 Sports.
Nelson has played 23 out of 24 possible games and made 20 starts in his first two seasons with Miami. Miami will have one of the most experienced offensive lines in college football in 2021. The Hurricanes OL developed two years after Jakai Clark and Nelson started as real newbies in 2019.
Miami needs to evolve on the orienteering. The Hurricanes ranked 99th in the country in 2020, allowing 2.73 bags per game. Nelson improved a lot in the second half of last season. In the 2021 season, Nelson could become the best player in the Miami Hurricanes.
Nelson is clearly the best NFL prospect Miami has. Ereck Flowers was the last Miami OT selected in the first round of the NFL Draft. The New York Giants designed ninth place overall in the 2015 NFL Draft. Nelson, who continues to play at the level he reached in the second half of the season, should confirm his predictions.

“Nelson was one of the best left wingers in the ACC in the last six games of the 2020 season. He received a Pass Blocking Score of 79.7 from Pro Football Focus while allowing only five presses and two sacks during that time. This pass blocking grade was the third best among the ACC links tackles.
Nelson was a three-star 247Sports Composite recruit of Sumter, South Carolina. He was also the No. 29 player in the state of South Carolina in the 2019 recruiting class. “By the end of the season, Nelson had not only recaptured the starting job as a left-hander, but also emerged as one of the most impressive linemen in the ACC.
Nelson is a true junior with a lot of experience which suggests he should be considered among the best tackles in the sport. “
Nelson provides Miami with an anchor on the left side of the orienteering area. DJ Scaife and Jarrid Williams will fight for the starting RT. Scaife moved away from the right guard this spring. Williams started 10 of the 11 Miami games on RT in 2020. Nelson has improved his body from 6’524o when he first came to Miami to the current 316 pounds.
Nelson started out as a true newbie, even though he was too small. Analysts and scouts want Nelson to develop his strength and improve as a runblocker. If Nelson and the Miami Hurricanes OL move forward, the Hurricanes offense may become more consistent and explosive in 2021.
