Tyler Shelvin DT LSU Draft Profile

Cincinnati Bengals Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 4 - Pick Number: 122 (CIN)
Strengths
  • Plays with leverage at the point of attack whether inside or outside. Keeps eyes in the backfield when inside; moves linemen to either side with strong hands.
  • Delivers a strong punch and uses his hands to shed blocks to make plays in the hole or outside the box. Uses lower-body strength to anchor inside.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • His ability to clog running lanes, however, is a talent highly coveted in the NFL.
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
Weaknesses
  • Good strength, though his marginal arm length limits his ability to grab hold of ballcarriers as they run by.
  • Isn't able to consistently shed blocks and makes plays in the hole.
  • He struggles with leverage off the snap and plays too tall, limiting his effectiveness as a pass rusher.
  • Lacks closing speed and inconsistent quickness off the snap prevents him from being an elite pass rusher.
  • He remains raw as a pass rusher and doesn't have the foot speed to chase down ballcarriers.
