Default Kawaan Short DT Purdue eval

Most of you know that I am a fan of big nose tackles for Texans. I have had opportunity to watch most of the noted higher ranked tackles. I have not watched Brandon WIlliams or Purdue's Kawaan Short. Today, Jan 1, 2012 Oklahoma St is playing Purdue and it is half time. First thing that stands out is why Short gets so much attention; no one else is worth a crap. At least during this half & I do realize it's not enough to evaluate on. Still, as noted in the Texans forum playoffs are where you expect layers to step up.

Nothing here folks is what I kept mumbling & wishing there was a movie or Jerry Springer to watch. In first half, I saw Short make a sack which was impressive, another good play and then a decent play where he actually took on more than one blocker. The sack was not from the NT position either so did not help me want to select him for that spot. As OK St is high powered O with a lot of passing, I expeted to see Short do some god thing and win me over. Did not happen.

Okay, second half starting..Purdue turns the ball over.

Game almost over, Purdue has 5 turnovers 55-7. With Purdue's defense on field a lot I expected Short to have a better showing...whoa he almost got to QB so that makes 4 plays. He did not seem to give up or tire significantly so that is a positive. I have moved him off my list of interests.

Lot of people want a DT especially you and BL .... but its obvious to anyone watching the Texans that the OL is flat out broken while the defense has been at least "ok"despite not getting much help from the offense.

I wouldnt mind a top tier DT .... but dont think they have the luxury of spending a #1 on the position because of all the needs elsewhere.

Even if Cody is not resigned , I see them going another direction and addiong to DT via mid round pick or FA.

If you have read my mocks you should know I have not used a first for DT since Jesse Williams quickly climbed from our reach. I do think DT is priority one as our weakness there impacts so much else. LBs and DBs are impacted by NT as Oline are able to focus on Smith and Watt.
If you are going to come with Oline be specific as many say RT but imo that is a knee jerk reaction. Also, we must keep in mind if anyone we draft in first starts or is a back up. Again, I think there will be no offensive guard or tackle where we will pick that will start over Newton, Smith or Brown. Ain't happening. Jones looked very good at first then trailed off. I wonder if Newton's knee impacted Jones? I think Brooks will start most games RG 2013 and Jones will back up RG/ center. I am mocking Alvin Brooks who can play either guard as he will be on of the starters in '14 as Wade Smith gone.

I think ILB and WR2 are both next on priority. There will be no ILB avail round one so I go with a WR2 Patterson who should be available top of second round and I hope we trade down and get him picking up at least another third.
What is good for me is that my three needs can be taken care of in first three rounds although I'm predicting Brandon Williams in fourth and OLB in second.
What is "obvious" to me is that Schaub is more broken than the Oline but that is an opinion just like yours.

There are a couple of us, badboy is not one of them, who is intrigued by Short. He seems pretty active & dominant when in the game but he sits out alot, more than I care to see. Not sure if this is a conditioning problem or if just scheme & coaching decision, whatever the reason Purdue is a bad team & should be much better than it is with a quality player like Short.
