Cornerback Sojourn Shelton
Over his 4 years during a University of Wisconsin, cornerback Sojourn Shelton compiled 129 total tackles, 9 interceptions and 30 passes defensed. He warranted second-team All-Big Ten honors as a senior.
And yet, breeze day(s) came and went but a 5’9″, 177-pounder conference his name called—probably since of a tiny fact that he’s, well, small.
Shelton told Adam Green of Arizona Sports that as distant as he’s concerned, it isn’t a distance of a dog in a fight.
It’s a distance of a quarrel in a dog.
“(I’m) only an assertive corner, a scrappy corner,” he said. “I am smaller, so that’s my whole thing, only being like an irritating gnat outside, only can’t get divided from them. That’s a kind of dude we honour myself on being.”
Head manager Bruce Arians pronounced a Redbirds unequivocally scarcely drafted Shelton on Day 3.
“We had him adult there flattering high, and that’s because we went after him, really, right after a draft,” he said. “We unequivocally favourite him. It unequivocally came down — we had Rudy (Ford) approach adult there and we traded adult — or we’d substantially have drafted him in a seventh round.”
Shelton, who got a $25,000 signing bonus from a Cardinals, stood out during rookie minicamp, where his technique and round skills were on display.
Shelton’s already shown a ability to hang with a large boys during college football’s top level.
It unequivocally wouldn’t be that large of an dissapoint if he total out a approach to secure a mark during a behind finish of a Cardinals roster.
