Quenton Nelson is the NFL's most disrespectful player - here's why

The 2018 NFL Draft saw some excellent new players enter the National Football League.

At the number one overall pick, Baker Mayfield is at the centre of the turnaround of the Cleveland Browns - who are actually winning games now. Meanwhile, Saquon Barkley, Denzel Ward, Bradley Chubb, Derwin James and Leighton Vander Esch all look like stars of the future. 

One team that had an incredible draft was the Indianapolis Colts, who spent their first two picks on linebacker Darius Leonard and offensive lineman Quenton Nelson - two players who have been absolute studs and could conceivably win Defensive and Offensive Rookie of the Yes, respectively. 

But it's Nelson we're looking to focus on here, and the former Notre Dame man has been showing exactly why he was the first offensive guard taken so high in years - being the 6th overall pick. 

So far, Nelson has made history by becoming the first ever offensive lineman to win NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month and is a real contender to make the Pro Bowl and even potentially an All-Pro team as a rookie. 

But it isn't the fact that he's the first man to win OROM that has us interested. There is something else about Nelson that makes him one of our favourite players in the entire league. 

2018 NFL Draft

Quenton Nelson is 6'5 and weighs 330lbs. He was born in Holmdel, New Jersey. His nickname is 'Earl Grey'. 

So, why is this giant American nicknamed named after a blend of tea? 

Because he's got a reputation for teabagging opponents on the field after he pancake blocks them. Yes, seriously. 

Former NFL offensive lineman turned analyst Greg Schwartz took to Twitter earlier this week to highlight one play against the Miami Dolphins from last weekend that showed Nelson doing the dirty to Kiko Alonso. 

This is why Quenton Nelson is the NFL's most disrespectful player. Because if he gets you on the floor he will wipe his groin all over your grill. And that's just embarrassing. 

The Colts have the best young lineman in the NFL - and the fact that he breaks out moves like this is just the icing on the cake for us.
