he was big and strong enough to play outside

By: bigballss

in college. You saw him play, he was very good.

Had problems with the physical corners in the NFL and could not get separation. Put him in the slot solves that problem. Great recognition by the Eagles coach, poor job by Chip, almost ruined Nelsons career, freaking hack . The USC coaches just want to win and they played him where he could make the most impact. made all american. Had no reason to play him in the slot when he was killing people on the outside and less risk of injury. Hope that satisfactorily answers the question.
