Washington defensive tackle Danny Shelton is expected to be a top-10 pick in the draft. At the Combine he did not do anything to give anyone reason to think differently. The 6'2" 339 pounder was not lightning fast in the 40-yard dash, but for someone his size he did pretty good (5.66). He is more than strong enough (34 repetitions of 225 pounds) to play the position in the NFL.However...
