ESPN's Mel Kiper admitted to initially overstating Washington senior DT Danny Shelton's "ability to move and get up the field."
Rotoworld's Josh Norris has been persistent that Shelton's six sacks this season are an aberration, and it seems like Kiper agrees once watching the film. Shelton ranks as Kiper's No. 22 overall prospect. Sep 18 - 12:14 PM

Washington senior DT Danny Shelton has recorded 7.5 tackles for loss, including six sacks, during the first two games of the season.

Shelton is a massive 6'1/327 lbs defensive tackle who many pegged as a two-gapping run stuffer up front. However, these numbers suggest Shelton can make an impact in the opponents' backfield. We have yet to watch the games against Hawaii and Eastern Washington, but the Huskies' defense is loaded despite giving up a combined 68 points.

Washington senior DT Danny Shelton is "a classic two-gap run-plugger," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Shelton has been awarded honorable mention all-conference honors two straight years, spiking his production from 11 tackles to 45 to 59 over the past three. "Shelton has the brute strength to bull-rush opponents into the backfield but has just phone-booth quickness, which allows ball-carriers to squirt free, resulting in 'just' 7.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks to this point," Rang wrote. "Shelton's game is based on his size and power but he cannot allow his weight to get out of control." The 6-foot-1, 327-pound defensive lineman doesn't quit and moves well for someone his size, but he'll have to start turning down desert if he values his NFL Draft stock.
