Name:Nathan Shepherd

Position:DT

Ht.-Wt.:6-5, 315

School:Fort Hays State

Key stat:Roughly one-third of his tackles last season were for losses – 12 ½ out of 38, including four sacks.

Notable:Has taken a very unusual route to the NFL, starting at Simon Frasier University in Canada, taking two years off due to financial hardship, and landing at Division II Fort Hays State, at first on his own dime and then earning a scholarship. Was getting noticed during the opening practices at the Senior Bowl before breaking his hand, but still might have impressed enough to move up from a third-day to a second-day draft pick.
