Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: He is a controlled athlete with smooth lateral movements and a flexible lower body to alter his momentum on the move, breaking down and finishing in tight spaces. Day is almost always the first lineman to move off the ball with terrific snap anticipation and a motor that is always revving.

WEAKNESSES: Lengthy injury history, leaving durability in question. He lacks ideal point of attack strength and the term "stout anchor" won't be found in his scouting report.

IN OUR VIEW: As an interior disruptor, Day is one of the best in college football and arguably one of the top 10 senior prospects in the 2016 class (if he can stay healthy).

--Dane Brugler (8/24/15)

Player Overview

Entering his third season as a starter for the Irish, Day has battled various injuries over his career. But when healthy and on the field, he is an impact defender in the trenches.

01/10/2015 - Sheldon Day to return to Notre Dame for senior season...Here's some good news for Notre Dame, and a nice change of pace with the recent flood of underclassmen declaring for the NFL Draft. The Irish will have a key member of their defense back on the unit in 2015. The school announced on Saturday that defensive lineman Sheldon Day will return to school for his senior season. "I just felt it was in my best interest to play another year for Notre Dame," said Day. A run-stuffer up the middle, Day finished the 2014 season with 40 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, a sack and nine QB hurries. It's very good news for an Irish defense that had underclassmen make up nine of their 11 leading tacklers in 2014. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com
