RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The Browns' first-round selection in the 2015 NFL Draft, Shelton appeared consistently overweight throughout the entirety of the 2015 season and played on just 48 percent of the team's defensive snaps. However, he showed up to training camp in significantly better shape, and is poised to improve on his 36 tackle, zero sack rookie-year performance. Nonetheless, Shelton remains firmly off the IDP radar.
Shelton is expected to serve as the starting nose tackle in defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil's 3-4 scheme. He's known primarily for his run-stopping ability, so if he ends up getting replaced on passing downs, it risks limiting his value as an IDP. He did manage nine sacks in his senior season at Washington, however, but it remains to be seen if that capability will translate to the NFL.
