Prospect Profile: Dan Sheldon
Ht: 5-9 Wt: 179 40: 4.49 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Two-year starter who impacts the game as a return specialist. Led the team in receiving as a senior, posting 40/936/9, also averaging 16.4 yards on 21 punt returns, bringing one back for a score. Missed most of the 2003 campaign after an elbow injury. Posted 40/783/5 receiving as a junior, also leading the NCAA with a 22.7 yard average on 21 punt returns, 3 which were brought back into the end zone.
Positives: Tough, hard-working prospect whose primary duties lay on special teams. Sells his routes, very quick into breaks and extends to catch the ball away from his frame. Possesses soft hands. Gets up in a crowd to make the difficult reception, displaying outstanding focus. Consistently finds the open spot on the field as a receiver or punt returner. Adjusts well to the errant throw, getting down to scoop up the low pass. Resilient running after the reception or returning punts.
Negatives: Times well in the forty yet does not show the ability to run to the deep ball. Small and struggles beating jams or winning out against larger opponents.
Analysis: A productive collegiate ball handler, Sheldon has the ability to affect a team in a variety of ways at the next level. Lacks the size to be anything other than a fifth receiver, yet his consistent hands and return skills may make it tough to keep him off a roster.
