■ David Lombardi has Charles Nelson as one of the the Pac-12 spring breakout players.
Observers already enjoyed a taste of Nelson's explosiveness last year, but he made a monstrous roar this spring. His exhibition performance this past Saturday was so dominant on both sides of the ball -- five catches, 144 yards, two touchdowns and an interception -- that it has created a tug-of-war among the Ducks' position coaches. Nelson has shown the potential to exhilarate in all three phases of the game.
