Duke Shelley: 3 things to know about the new Bears CB draft pick

Shelley is coming off of a toe injury

Last Updated:

1) Defensive mainstay: Shelley started 37 games in four years at Kansas State and tied for fourth in school history with two pick-sixes. That 37 starts would have been higher if not for a toe injury cut his Kansas St. career short seven games into his senior season.

2) Highly recruited: Coming out of high school in Tucker, Georgia, Shelley was the 22nd-best cornerback by Rivals.com and 33rd by ESPN.

3) His best game: Arguably Shelley’s best game came just one game before his season-ending injury. Against Oklahoma St. in Oct. 13, he had two interceptions, a pass breakup and six solo tackles in a 31-12 victory.
