Colts rookie guard Quenton Nelson has an extra nastiness you can’t teach, and seems to take a perverse pleasure in demoralizing defenders when he plants them into the ground.
Yesterday, Nelson went viral for laying out a Jags defender with as devastating a block as you’ll ever see on a run play, but it’s only half the story. The Colts twitter account released audio of Nelson screaming like an absolute mad man as he laid the wood which makes it 10,000 times better.
It’s only a quick clip, but it’s hard not to watch it about 150 times on a loop because it’s just that good. Some people wondered how a guard could warrant the 6th overall pick in the draft, but 6’5” 330 road grader has been better than advertised. For defenders that see – or hear – him coming it’s probably best to just get the hell out of the way.
