Scouting Report

40 time: 4.40


SNAPSHOT: A former three-star prospect from Las Vegas powerhouse Bishop Gorman, Nailor worked his way up slowly, building on production annually. In his fourth and final year with the Spartans, tallied 37 catches for 695 yards and 6 touchdowns in just nine games.

Strengths: The biggest draw for NFL eyes will be speed. With a quality frame too, he should have early success deep. Michigan State's offense was a bit limited in attacking downfield, but Nailor overcame that with production on manufactured touches and improving his route tree in the short game. He can take the top off of a defense, and open up opportunities underneath.

Weaknesses: Is rather green in terms of overall polish and struggles to deal with contact, needing to do a better job positioning himself for the ball. While he has flashes, there needs to be more consistency from snap to snap in order to carve out a full-time professional role. Nailor could also get bumped down in stock due to consistent nagging issues that caused him to miss games throughout his career.

PRO COMP: Chris Givens, Retired -- A similar frame to speed profile with plenty of upside that should intrigue. Givens got off to a hot start in his career with early production before tapering off. Nailor could get out the gates just as hot and hopefully carry that momentum for a long time.
