STORRS, Conn. - Connecticut basketball player Ed Nelson has decided to pursue an NFL career.

The 6-foot-8, 265-pound senior power forward, who did not play college football, plans to work out for NFL teams April 21 on the UConn campus.

"I have gotten great feedback in the last week that I am an individual that NFL teams could and will be very interested in," Nelson said Thursday. "I am anxious for the chance to show scouts next week that I can help their team in the future."

Nelson's agent, Joe Linta, said the Kansas City Chiefs, Minnesota Vikings and Cleveland Browns have committed to send representatives to the workout.

"I came up to work out Ed with little expectations and came away convinced that he is an NFL prospect at the tight end position," Linta said. "He is very quick, has outstanding hands and great lower body strength."

The fact that a guy like this with no football experience can generate high interest gives me hope that I too can be a walk-on someday with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Gates and TonyG, as long as you have any athletic ability and are tall with great hands you can try out...

As long as we don't go higher than a 7th rounder fine and dandy on this guy.

Aren't there a lot of actual TE's in this draft? Why not get one of those?
