Tahoma vs Auburn
As an offensive guard, Shelton plays with good pad level and leg drive. He has little trouble
getting to the second level. He keeps his head up and looks to help block,
sometimes getting two or even three blocks on any given play. He shows a good
change of direction allows him to block smaller players like linebackers.
He has good
effort and follows up plays downfield. Good balance and keeps a good base so he
doesn't lunge for his blocks. Strong initial punch, could use his hands better
to maintain his block. Lines up at tackle as well, has an attacking style of
pass blocking. which is more like a good run block than using a drop step and
At defensive line, he's a straight ahead nose guard type that fires off the ball trying to drive
his blocker backwards. He does a good job of holding his blocker in place and
maintaining his ground, but doesn't do a very good job of disengaging from his
blocker to get involved in the play.
Shelton's skill set seems to be better suited long term for the offensive side of the ball
at offensive guard.
