Draft Zone Spotlight: Kawann Short, DT, Purdue University
Kawann Short was just a three-star prospect ranked as No. 24 defensive tackle nationally and No. 6 player in Indiana by Scout.com coming out of high school, but a lot has changed since his high school days. After a tremendous junior and senior year for the Boilermakers, Kawann is being labeled by some media outlets as the prize possession in the draft. I have to agree with them, because of his motor and range. This kid is a very solid run stuffer and has the wheels to penetrate the middle of the field. I am a huge fan of Kawann and believe whatever team takes him, will be getting a major steal in the draft.
How many teams were recruiting you coming out of high school and how did you make your decision?
Purdue was my first offer. I committed and then they all started coming after that… I always wanted to stay in state and Purdue was the best fit for me.
