01/04/18 - 2017 ASSOCIATED PRESS ALL-BOWL TEAM: Offensive line: Quenton Nelson, Notre Dame (Citrus): This consensus All-American capped a brilliant season by making a number of highlight-worthy blocks against a stingy defense in the 14th-ranked Fighting Irish's 21-17 victory over No. 16 LSU. - AP College Football
12/19/17 - Notre Dame has won the Joe Moore Award as the nation's top offensive line. The 14th-ranked Fighting Irish had both left tackle Mike McGlinchey and left guard Quenton Nelson selected to the AP All-America team, and ranked third in the nation in yards per carry at 6.37. The other finalists were the Alabama and Auburn offensive lines. The rest of Notre Dame's offensive line features Alex Mustipher at center, Alex Bars at right guard and Tommy Kraemer and Robert Hainsey shared time at right tackle. - AP College Football
10/31/17 - Oct 30 Stock Report: Who helped themselves? Quenton Nelson, OG, Notre Dame, rJR. (6-4, 325, 5.23, #56)...Led by a productive run game, the Irish are in a strong position to win out and capture a spot in the College Football Playoff. Junior running back Josh Adams, who ranks fifth in the FBS with 1,169 rushing yards, is in the Heisman discussion, but the best player on the Notre Dame roster is Nelson. Interior offensive linemen rarely receive the notice they deserve, and that is the case in South Bend. Like every other game this season, Nelson was terrific against North Carolina State, creating movement and clearing run lanes for Adams to advance untouched to the second level. He is heavy-handed to control the point of attack and flashes the same mean streak as a finisher, pancaking defenders to the ground. Nelson is just as effective in pass protection with the polish and discipline to start in the NFL for a long time. Traditionally, offensive guards are not drafted among the top-five picks, but that type of thinking is starting to change and Nelson, who will be one of the best players in the 2018 class if he declares, has the skill-set to crash the top-five picks next spring. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
