2022 NFL draft: Dolphins meet Wisconsin S Scott Nelson via Zoom – Dolphins Wire

The 2022 NFL draft begins Thursday night, and all 32 teams hope to make selections that will change the trajectory of their franchise toward winning a Super Bowl.
At this point, we’re still finding out about meetings that draft hopefuls are having with teams, despite the event being so close. On Wednesday, we learned that the Dolphins met with Wisconsin safety Scott Nelson on Zoom, according to Pro Football Network’s Aaron Wilson.
Nelson is seen as a late-round or undrafted free agent prospect heading into the draft by most. He played in 28 games over four years with the Badgers, recording 125 total tackles, 19 passes defended, four interceptions, one forced fumble and one sack.
At Wisconsin’s Pro Day, the safety measured in at 6-foot-2, 203 pounds. He ran a 4.49-second 40-yard dash and recorded a 39.5-inch vertical jump.
The Dolphins currently have a fair amount of safeties on their roster, including Jevon Holland, Brandon Jones, Eric Rowe, Clayton Fejedelem, Sheldrick Redwine and a number of safety/corner hybrids. However, behind the top three, the actual defensive depth isn’t great with many of their defensive backs playing mostly on special teams. If Nelson were brought in, he may be able to help in that sense.
