Draft Focus: Jordy Who? K State's WR Jordy Nelson

I recently did a post on who the Bucs were currently interested in for next month's NFL Draft. I gotta be honest, when it comes to College Football, I'm pretty tunnel-visioned and that vision is fixated on one school: Florida State (last season I heavily pushed for the Bucs to draft LB Buster Davis, umm this year I wont push for any Noles).. Moving on.. That name, Jordy, peaked my interest so I digged a little deeper into what type of player he is:

WR Jordy Nelson (Kansas State) 6'2, 213lbs - A former walk-on who has worked into an All-American. He finished his senior season with 122 receptions for 1,606 yards and 11 Touchdowns. He's considered to be great in the slot and has Good-great hands/speed. He's very elusive. He's a consistent route runner who finds openings and reads the defense well. Will be a great asset as a slot receiver and special teams ace.

The three video's below show Jordy's elusiveness, determination, and abilities (a one handed -ridiculous- grab, he burns highly touted CB Aqib Talib, and he has a knack for catching, returning, and yes, throwing touchdowns):

Jordy seems to have those cat-like reflexes, by that, I mean he catches the ball and immediately knows what his next move will be. In the video's you can see he fights for extra yardage, that would make him an instant fan favorite at Raymond James. I like that he has the ability to return punts as well. He looks like a poor man's version (due to a lack of name recognition) of New England's Wes Welker and Indy's Anthony Gonzalez. Nelson is projected as a 2nd-3rd Round Draft Pick...
