I project him to be more of a hole filler and run stopper. If that is correct, I'd rather have Brandon or Sylvester Williams a round lower & use my first elsewhere.
On Short .... He's not going to be asked to anchor in this defense. He's going to be asked to penetrate. You can throw out the typical 3-4 NT stereotype.
I wasnt sold on him earlier .... but I think he would be a great fit and maybe a three down guy.
