Eric Shelton School: Louisville
Ht: 6-1.5 Wt: 246 40: 4.57 Year: 4Jr
Bio: Led the team in rushing as a junior posting
146/938/20 while adding six receptions. Second
team all-conference choice last year. Sophomore
totals included 166/790/10. Began his college
career at Florida State.
Positives: Punishing interior
ball carrier who can handle a heavy work load.
Possesses great power, can be his own blocker
and breaks several tackles during a single run.
Also displays good running vision. Fluid ball
handler who looks like he's gliding on the field.
Looks like a runaway locomotive on the open
Negatives: Lacks overall quickness and does not
possess a burst through the hole. Marginal skills
as a pass catcher. Occasionally lined up at fullback
yet does not attack blocking assignments.
Analysis: A big, brutish ball carrier, Shelton has
the natural skills to be a feature running back at
the next level. Could pick up the intensity in several
different areas, yet possesses good running
