Danny Shelton, the massive defensive tackle prospect from the Washington Huskies, ran a ‘slow’ 5.66 40 (1.88 10 yd split.)
DB’s Take: This is a classic example of “watch the tape” in order to understand the real value of Danny Shelton. First, the 40 time for a guy with Shelton’s skill set is far less important than for guys like Vic Beasley, et. al. Shelton wins with brute power and strength at the POA while also possessing light feet and the ability to penetrate from time to time. He’s a top-10 prospect who won’t be impacted (negatively) for his lacking straight-line speed.
