Biography: Part-time starter the past two seasons after transferring from Tennessee. Senior totals included 29/511/4 after 39/627/8 as a junior.
Positives: Nice-sized pass catcher who's never lived up to expectations. Fluid releasing off the line into pass routes, uses his frame to shield away opponents, and takes a pounding yet holds onto the throw. Extends vertically or adjusts to make the errant catch.
Negatives: Not a physical receiver who plays to his size. Tends to gather into tackles. Lets some catchable throws slip through his hands.
Analysis: Shelley is a camp player who will struggle to make it a practice squad unless he quickly lives up to his billing and plays to his level of ability.
