Here is some of the rationale for choosing Nelson, a left guard who has made the Pro Bowl in each of his five NFL season and is a three-time All-Pro.

I wrote the other day that Nelson was a no-brainer choice for me. Here is at least one very smart commenter agreeing with me:

‘FirstWave’ dropped a comment reminding that the Giants could have had Nelson in 2018, selecting Saquon Barkley instead.

Linebacker Shaquille (not Darius) Leonard got a decent amount of support.

There was also plenty of recognition that the Colts, despite being 4-10-1, have a number of excellent players.
