The undrafted rookie won’t likely push for a starting spot but he could surprise in camp to the point of making the final 53-man roster. How he ended up undrafted is a little bit of a surprise after his career at Wisconsin.
The cornerback position will be one of the most watched position battles in camp. The second starting position opposite Patrick Peterson is still unresolved.
With four interceptions and 12 passes defensed in 14 games last season at Wisconsin, he finished with nine interceptions and 30 passes defensed over four seasons. That’s enough to want to see what he can do at the professional level.
There are 11 corners in camp but the Cardinals are likely to keep four to five of them, especially if the team isn’t sold on whoever they tab as the second starter in week one. Shelton should have a great opportunity to present his case.
