2023 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about JUSTIN SHORTER:
Florida | H: 6036 W: 229 40: 4.50 A: 3334 H: 1000 W: 8238
Three-year starter, South Brunswick, NJ. Spent two seasons at Penn State and three at Florida. Bounced between multiple teams, offensive systems, and quarterbacks over the course of his career. While he never quite became a consistent producer, his tools flashed in every situation. The size and play-strength are positive factors that can be used from different alignments. His short area quickness will make things difficult to get open but if he can get time and space to get moving, there is enough speed to separate vertically. Massive frame with huge paws. Will give the passer a sizable target to throw to. Capable of outmuscling smaller defenders in contested situations with proper blend of size, strength, and competitiveness. Shows advanced route running tactics and tempo. Understands leverage and manipulation. Will contribute as a gunner on special teams. Sluggish out of breaks. Constantly playing in a crowd, will not create much space on his own. Nearly a non-factor after the catch. Tight hips and lack of creativity and vision will dampen his ability to create. Brings a level of size and strength that very few possess, and he will do more for a team than just play receiver, but there is a limit to his upside because of movement shortcomings.
2022 Stats: 29-577, 19.9 ypr, 2 TD. OSR:17/46. 6th/7th round.
