Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DANNY SHELTON: Washington, 6021 339 5.61. Three-year starter from Auburn, WA. Powerful, explosive, and high energy pocket collapser. Quick thinker who can read the action around him. Very smart and aware. Plays with a low and strong center of gravity. Can anchor his position against double teams. Generates a high amount of power from both his legs and hands. Controls the blocker with his initial punch. Pursues and hustles from sideline to sideline. Gets near the action often. Can shed blocks several ways. Pull and jerk, undercut, and spin his way off the blocker. Light on his feet. Tenacious pass rusher with a violent and surprisingly athletic style. Can bull rush his way deep into the pocket. Carries a lot of weight but moves surprisingly well. Shelton has improved each and every season of his career both on and off the field. His maturity issues appear to be a thing of the past but those issues still need to be investigated. Between the sidelines Shelton is a terror for linemen to block. He has tremendous functional power and strength. He is a high effort player who consistently plays through the whistle. He outplays what his body type says he can do. Improves as the play goes on because of his rare ability to get off blocks and chase down the action. Shelton can fit in to any scheme and start from day one in the NFL. Weight will need to be monitored. Shorter arms than ideal. 2014 stats: 93 T, 16.5 TFL, 9 sacks, 3 QBH. Edge speed:left 2.52, right 2.36. OSR:19/20. First round. (A-32, H-10 1/4, BP-34, 10-1.86).
