Part of a surprising Houston Texans team last year, veteran Steven Nelson once again played good football. He's been one of those consistent, under-the-radar types for years now. But, he's always been a consistent presence at the position.

Over his last eight seasons, he's finished with at least seven pass breakups in seven of those campaigns. He's also topped double digits three times, including his 12 last year. The 2023 season saw him give up a career-best one touchdown in coverage, too, which is something he can hang his hat on.

One thing we'll continue to talk about is the fact that the Packers need someone who can stay on the field, and Nelson has been able to do that as well. He's played in at least 15 games during every season dating back to 2018, proving to be sturdy and someone the Packers could count on.
