Kawann Short | Defensive Tackle | Purdue | 6-3, 310 pounds

Games Watched: Ohio State and Michigan (2011)

I am currently in the process of constructing my first 2013 NFL Draft Big Board. While I am compiling the list, I will release some of my notes on the players I am breaking down.Rather than a full scouting report, I will be releasing notes on these players. Full scouting reports will be based on games watched this upcoming season.

First Word: Kawann Short is a scheme-versatile interior lineman with tons of athletic ability. He makes plays against the run with ease and seems to be improving a bit as a pass rusher. Short's motor and football savvy will make him an outstanding leader at the next level. If he continues his impressive play, Short should be a first round draft pick next April.

Strengths:

  • Short is a rock on the inside.
  • Excellent hand-use. Sheds blocks with ease.
  • Combination of burst and instincts makes him quick off the snap.
  • Solid change of direction skills for a man his size.
  • Utilizes an effective spin move. Rarely ends up on the ground

Weaknesses:

  • Not an elite pass rusher.
  • Seemed to luck into a few sacks in the games I watched. Definitely more of a run stuffer.
