2015 Senior Bowl: Danny Shelton Interview

By Charlie Campbell – @draftcampbell

The favorite to be the first player drafted from the 2015 Senior Bowl roster is Washington nose tackle Danny Shelton. The 6-foot-1, 343-pound lineman is a quick and physical defender who causes lots of disruption at the point of attack. We caught up with Shelton to discuss his Senior Bowl experience, his final collegiate season, and which NFL teams are showing interest in him.

Who are some of the teams you’ve met with thus far at the Senior Bowl?

“Today I have a meeting set up with the Texans. I’ve met with the Browns, Bears, Packers, Buccaneers, Dolphins. A lot of teams really.”

Do any of those teams stand out as showing the most interest in you?

“I really don’t know. It is all the same kind of meetings just seeing where you’re coming from and my background.”




Talk about your conditioning. I think it was really impressive for a blocker of your size to play four quarters like you did throughout the season.

“Really, it is necessary. Nine out of 10 teams were playing fast tempo. We really take that into consideration in preparing for the season. I felt like it was just something we had to do if we wanted to be one of the top defenses in the Pac 12.”

At the weigh-in this morning you threw an arm up in the air after your weight was announced. Was that a celebration of making weight or maintaining where you wanted to be from the end of the year?

“It was just seeing improvement. I was excited to see it. I’ve been concentrating on dropping weight and it’s finally coming.”




What were some of the techniques that the Titans coaches were working with you on today?

“Just really getting into using my hands more and using my hands faster. I feel like that and being able to attack more.”

You had six sacks in your first two games of the season and finished with nine on the season. After your fast start it looked like you were getting consistent double teams.

“During the year, we had different levels of competition. I tried to do my best to compete against everybody. I had double teams, but my job description is someone that takes up two or three blockers. If I do my job right good things will happen so that’s what I’m focusing on.”
