2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Malcolm Sheppard, DT, Arkansas

Sheppard was an instant contributor for the Arkansas Razorbacks right from the start. He played in 14 games as a freshman in 2006, started 12 games as both a sophomore and junior, and started 13 games last year in a solid senior campaign. In 2008 he led the team with six sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss. Sheppard drew more attention from opposing offensive lines in 2009, but he still led the way for Arkansas with 11 tackles for loss and he was tied for third with 2.5 sacks. He finished the year with 33 total tackles and was second on the team with four quarterback hurries. Sheppard is not a massive defensive tackle -- standing at 6'2' and 280 pounds (although he is sometimes generously listed around 290) -- he does, however, consistently run faster than 5.0 in the 40-yard dash (and he has been clocked as fast as 4.84 from that distance). Sheppard does not take up a ton of space on the front line like some of the mammoth run-stuffers, but he is a nimble lineman who can wreak havoc in the backfield and disrupt both running and passing plays. The Bainbridge, GA product was not a major recruit out of high school and he is not a top NFL prospect, but he seems to be an overachiever and he comes with no red flags whatsoever. As a result, Sheppard could warrant a Day 2 draft pick.
