Safety Tom Nelson
College: Illinois State
NFL experience: Fourth year
The scoop: Nelson hasn’t seen a regular-season NFL snap since the 2011 season after two years in Philadelphia and one in Cincinnati. Nelson has made plays on the ball the past two days, but he has an uphill climb to unseat a safety and secure a final roster spot.
