Pos: 
Undersized cornerback best facing the action. Plays aggressive football, works hard and does not back down to a challenge. Flips his hips smoothly, keeps the play in front of him and shows a burst to the ball out of his plant. Tracks the pass in the air, moves fluidly in every direction and displays good hands for the interception. Quick up the field and gives effort against the run. Effectively covers receivers on crossing patterns.
Neg: 
Struggles in deep coverage and does not play to his 40 time. Not a strong open-field tackler. Lack of height results in mismatches.
Analysis: 
Shelley was a consistent cornerback at the college level but lacks the desired height and size for the next level. He has enough skill to line up in dime packages and can play over the slot receiver or in a zone system.
