Player Overview

A forgotten prospect due to injury, Nicholson was a model of consistency as a true freshman and sophomore starting cornerback for the Cavaliers, earning All-American and All-Conference honors. But five games into the 2013 season, he was sidelined with a turf toe injury that required offseason surgery.

Nicholson played in only one game in 2014 as the toe injury continued to bother him, missing 18 of the last 19 games at Virginia. He received a medical hardship waiver from the NCAA for one final season of eligibility in 2015 and if spring practice is any indication, Nicholson is healthy and ready to compete as a senior.

Strengths Weaknesses

He lacks elite size for the position, but is a pesky cover man with instincts and ballskills that will give him a chance at the next level. Turf toe injuries have been known to end careers so a healthy senior year is imperative for Nicholson's pro evaluation.
