Kelvin Sheppard   #51 LB

Height: 6-2   Weight: 249   Age: 31

Born: 1/2/1988 Atlanta , GA

College: LSU

Experience: 8th season

High School: Stephenson HS [Stone Mountain, GA]









Draft 2011

Pick No.68

Selected By: Buffalo Bills

Round: 3

Pick (Overall): 4 (68)

Pick Analysis: Sheppard has the skill-set necessary to become a solid starting 4-3 outside linebacker in the NFL. Does a good job pursuing and tackling in open space and on the perimeter and can play in zone coverage but doesn't possess elite speed to consistently apply pressure off the edge or matchup in man against dangerous backs or tight ends. Struggles when cornered in a phone booth. Can be neutralized if blockers get good position and their hands on him. Takes some false steps and loses discipline with pursuit angles at times, but does possess solid instincts and awareness. Sheppard could sneak into Day 2.
