Ourlads' Profile:

2013 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about KAWANN SHORT: Purdue, 6032 299 5.10. Four-year starter who is built like a Sherman tank with long arms. A power player with good upper and lower body strength. Has the ability to control a blocker or flashes quickness to burst through a gap. Delivers explosive jolt to the blocker with his hands. Tough and aggressive. Plays with control and violence. His endurance has improved but must keep working to stay in shape so he can play in longer stretches. A big bodied inside player who can hold his ground and stack a double team. Gives effort to hustle to the perimeter but is usually a step late. Most productive from end to end. Has had 49 tackles for loss and 13.5 sacks in his career for an interior defensive lineman. He does a good job of getting in the throwing lane with his big hands and long arms up. He has broken up 14 passes and blocked 4 kicks in his career. A two-gap player who is productive versus the run. Clogs up the inside running lanes or squeezes and collapses the pocket in the pass game. Disruptive in his play. Has a knack to make a big play with a sack or strip. One of the few interior linemen who can rush the passer from the inside. A three down defensive lineman. A probable starter with minimal developmental time. 2012 stats: 43 T, 15.5 TFL, 7 sacks, 4 BB, 1 FF, 2 FR. Medical exclusion at Combine - right hamstring. First/second round. (A-34 3/4, H-9 3/4, BP-29, 10-1.75).
