2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Kawann Short, DT, Purdue
Short is at his best playing for penetration into the backfield. When he can explode through the line and split blockers, he's a very aggressive presence in the trenches. He has good size and strength and seems to use his hands well to initiate contact. Short is pretty athletic for a tackle, but he isn't a nose tackle. If consistent double teams come, he can disappear.
In order to progress as a player, he needs to stay lower in his pads and use better leverage when really taking on guys one on one. Possibly due to his above average athleticism, he plays small by trying to shoot gaps rather than occupy running lanes. He also needs to get his hands up when in the face of the quarterback.
Short has great potential, but he's still a bit raw and lacks that brute force to attack guys right between their numbers. Short projects as a late first to early second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
