Video — UW DT Danny Shelton

Better late than never — here’s some video of UW defensive tackle Danny Shelton talking to the media following Thursday’s practice.

Shelton, asked about his progress from last year, said one different is that “I’m getting more sleep because I know what’s coming. (My) freshman year I’d stay up all night too excited getting ready to practice. It’s a big difference now. I think now I’m more experienced, I’m ready, I’ve been watching film, I know what to expect, I’ll be ready to go out and show what I can do.”

He also talked about using better technique this season, saying: “Technique is the number one thing out here, hands, eyes, feet, hips. That’s the most important stuff right there, in the NFL, that’s what they are focusing on, using your hands a lot and I didn’t really use that in high school. I was just shoulder pads and bumping kids. It was a pretty big change for me, I wasn’t really bullying everybody like I did in high school.”

You can hear that and more in the video below:
