In the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, the Buccaneers selected Iowa defensive end Anthony Nelson.

The Bucs have kicked off Saturday with attempts to add depth, and potential starters, for their defensive line.

Below is an overview from’s draft analyst, Lance Zierlein:

Promising 4-3 defensive end prospect with outstanding length, good quickness and a play motor that keeps humming from snap to snap. Nelson needs to add play strength and learn to leverage his length to unlock his intriguing potential as a pass rusher. Teams could be tempted to play him inside in odd fronts, but he might not have the strength or physicality to handle that early on. His areas of concern are mostly correctable for a traits-based prospect with the potential for rapid improvement as a future starter.


What grade do you give the Nelson pick?
