Sheldon Day

Sheldon Day is a prospect whose stock could explode by the time he gets to the offseason in 2016. The 6’2″, 285-pounder strong, athletic and versatile enough slide all over the defensive line and do well. Day has immense talent and potential that he still yet to have fully tap into but can do so this season.

If he does on a consistent basis, the sky is the limit for him and the NFL will be ready for him right away. For the 2014 season, Day finished with 40 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss and just 1.0 sack. That’s not a bad season but a player with the amount of talent he has should have more production.

Throughout his career, when he’s been on, he’s really been on so he’ll be awesome onece he figures it out. A guy like Aaron Donald comes to mind when I think of what Day could potentially be. And from what I saw Saturday night, the senior has figured it out and he’s ready to put it all together this year.
