BIO: Former defensive end that started at offensive tackle on a full-time basis the past two years.
POSITIVES: Good-sized blocker best in a small area. Quick off the snap, smart and patient. Stays square, works his hands and keeps opponents away. Plays with balance and a solid position blocker that walls defenders from the action.
NEGATIVES: Lacks the dominant base, punch and adjustment. Gets pushed back off the ball and struggles the longer he must hold blocks. Does more stepping out than sliding out in pass protection.
ANALYSIS: A competitive lineman that plays until the whistle blows, Shelton has possibilities at right tackle and potentially guard. Must get in the weight room, physically mature and greatly improve his playing strength.
