Those constant double teams can wear on a big man. The other guy's on that line have to be accountable for some of that by not attracting some of those double teams themselves. If you only have to double one guy .... yeah , he's going to wear down.
Hell , almost every player has some warts and the deeper you get the more pronounced those warts are. No way I could have made everyone happy with any pick I made. Im satisfied with the choice and the impact he can make next season.
Charley is that you
Purdue defensive tackle Kawann Short was unable to work out at the NFL Scouting Combine or the school’s pro day on March 1 due to a hamstring injury, so an individual workout was held on Monday.
There were 20 teams present in West Lafayette, Ind., including five defensive line coaches and New Orleans Saints director of college scouting Rick Reiprish, for a workout held indoors on FieldTurf.
Short (6-foot-3 3/8, 303 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 5.08 and 5.09 seconds. He had a 27-inch vertical jump and an 8-foot-4 broad jump. He ran the three-cone drill in 7.55 seconds had the short shuttle in 4.65 seconds. He also performed 29 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. Short — a two-time first-team All-Big Ten honoree — also did positional drills.
Short is the No. 41-rated player in my Hot 100 prospect rankings. The latest mock draft of Charley Casserly — published Monday — projected Short going to the Minnesota Vikings with the No. 23 overall pick.
2012 Draft was Mercilus
