Shelton had a very productive career at Wisconsin, where he posted 125 tackles, 2.0 for loss, 9 interceptions, and an impressive 41 pass breakups. He is good in coverage, he has good speed, and he is a sure fire tackler. He is also a ball hawk. On the other side, he is very undersized, and he does not always play the ball in coverage. With that said Shelton should be a day 3 pick, likely in the 6th-7th round range.
