OMG, we got the guy who carried off Burrow #DESTINY      

They just brought him in to transport Joe around the facilities until his knee is completely healed.  😎

  • BlackJesus changed the title to *** RD 4 BENGALS DRAFT - TYLER SHELVIN (NT) ***
Tyler Shelvin

TYLER SHELVIN

LSU
Lafayette, LA
 
6' 2"
350 lbs
ARMS - 33 5/8"
HANDS - 10 1/4"
 
Shelvin struggled to find the field in his first two seasons with the Tigers, taking an academic redshirt in 2017 and then playing in just six games in 2018 (nine tackles, 1.5 sacks), when he missed time due to a suspension reportedly for failing to keep his weight down. The former five-star recruit began realizing his potential in the Tigers' national title run, however, starting 14 of 15 games and recording 39 tackles, three for losses, and two pass breakups. He opted out of the 2020 season. Shelvin played for former LSU linebacker Trev Faulk at Northside High School in Lafayette but transferred to Notre Dame High School (Crowley) in 2016 after Faulk resigned during his junior year. -- by Chad Reuter
Overview

Block-eating nose tackle with girth, power and leverage to play the role of tree stump against the run in an odd or even front. Shelvin can engage double teams with some effectiveness to allow linebackers to run free, but he doesn't display much range to make plays. He can be inconsistent in controlling and shedding single blocks in a timely fashion. He would benefit from better conditioning to improve both his stamina and quickness. He's unlikely to ever be much of a playmaker or pass rusher, which could limit his draft value, but his stout presence in the middle should carry value for teams looking to tighten up against the run.

 

 

Strengths
  • Excellent power and hard worker in the weight room.
  • Legitimate space-saving size and toughness.
  • Early to capture space in neutral zone off the snap.
  • Quick recognition of pressure from down blocks.
  • Able to hold off guards with his flipper.
  • Good technique to corkscrew in and grow roots against double teams.
  • Eats up leverage battle and lives under center's pads.
  • Two-gapper with big pop and lift from his hips and hands.
  • Daunting roadblock near the goal line.
  • Ability to bludgeon smaller centers with his power rush.

Not until he does a backflip

 

 

or at least a cartwheel or something

He carried Burrow off the field by himself, that will do. Lol.

You know I love my 350 lb DTS .... so I am excited. Plus the LSU Burrow connection is even better. 

4 of the 5 picks so far have been on the field with or against Burrow.

On one shoulder, like a wee little baby.  'Bout to hand him some damned peanuts so he can feed the giraffes.
