2013 NFL Draft Player Prospect Profile: Kawann Short
The fact that Kawann Short started all 12 games for Purdue as a redshirt freshman shows just how much potential this defensive star has and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he ends up becoming a starter as a rookie during the 2013 season. This year’s draft class is filled with plenty of great defensive players, but when it comes to selecting later in the first round or even early in the second round, Short will most likely be one of those players teams keep an eye on if he’s available.
His frame may need some work, but Short seems to have the perfect body strength and size to be successful at the NFL level–which gives him plenty of potential. At 6-3, there’s a reason why Short was considered one of the most dangerous players in the Big Ten last season and he seems like the type of player that will only get better with more experience.
Just look at his numbers from his time with Purdue and it’s clear Short has what it takes to make it at the NFL level. He may not be ready to be a starter just yet, but there’s no question the potential is certainly there for Short to develop into a defensive star over the next couple of years.
Short’s stock seems like it’s been all over the place these last couple of weeks, but it’s safe to say he’s worth the risk for teams in need of a key defensive player for the 2013 season.
