Round 1 (12): NT Danny Shelton, Washington


Awaiting Image
Danny Shelton
Washington / 6’2 / 339 lbs
  • DT
  • [1] #12

Analysis

Shelton was a beast as the anchor in the Huskie defense. He played in 53 games at Washington, starting 42 [39 at nose guard]. He’s clearly the top nose guard in this class and an ideal centerpiece for a 3–4 front. For a player of his size [340-pounds] he’s surprisingly nimbl, light on his feet and displays excellent lateral quickness. Shelton is so strong and shows some explosiveness. He commands a double team and often times can’t be moved off his spot. Shelton has the sheer strength to occupy multiple blockers. Last season he accounted for 94 tackles.

Round 1 (19): OL Cameron Erving, Florida State
Awaiting Image
Cameron Erving
Florida State / 6'5 / 313 lbs
  • C
  • [1] #19

Analysis

Erving, like T.J. Clemmings, is a converted defensive lineman. The south Georgia standout was terrific in Tallahassee when he transitioned to tackle. In 2014 he made a virtually seamless transition to center. He’s the consummate team player who made the move because the Seminoles needed him there. Erving excelled and became the first ACC offensive linemen to ever win the Jacobs Blocking Trophy (most outstanding linemen) award twice at two different positions. Erving will give one NFL franchise unbelievable value because of his ability to play multiple positions on the offensive front.

Round 2 (43): OLB/DE Nate Orchard, Utah
Awaiting Image
Nate Orchard
Utah / 6'3 / 250 lbs
  • OLB
  • [2] #19

Analysis

Orchard played in 50 games, starting three dozen times. He posted impressive numbers, finishing with 186 tackles, 25 sacks, and 39.5 tackles for a loss. He also caused eight fumbles. This past season he led the nation in sacks with 18.5 This is the same three-star prospect that showed up on Utah’s campus as a 190-pound recruit. Orchard plays fast and hard on every single down, always giving great effort. Now 6-foot-3, 250-pounds, he’s being looked at as a defensive end in a 4-3 or outside linebacker in a 3-4. He can rush with speed, power or an array of moves or techniques.

  • DT
  • [3] #32

Analysis

Cooper is a three-year starter for the Cougars. He posted 87 tackles over the past two seasons and 23.5 tackles for a loss. He can play the five-technique in a 3-4 defense or defensive tackle in a 4-3. Cooper is strong and uses his hands well. At 293-pounds is has deceptive short area quickness. He ran an impressive 4.37 20-yard shuttle at the Combine.
