Sunday links:

  • There was buzz all week about Danny Shelton being in the top prospect at the Senior Bowl, and some remain firm that he could be a top-10 pick in April’s NFL draft. Shelton was named the defensive lineman of the week after practices, and he ended up sharing the game high with five tackles in helping the North team to victory on Saturday.
  • NFL Network analyst Charles Davis writes that Shelton was one of the 10 standouts during the all-star week:

Some people believed coming into the week that Shelton could possibly be a top-10 selection in this year’s draft, and he did nothing to dissuade them from that belief with his performance in practices. He’s a big man at 6-2, 343, but he has better feet and stamina than you might think. Shelton is not just a sit-in-the-middle nose tackle. I think he can be a three-down defensive lineman at the next level — he played against a lot of up-tempo offenses in the Pac-12 and he didn’t come off the field much. Shelton reminds me of Casey Hampton early in his career with the┬áSteelers.
