I'm biased since I'm a Purdue fan, but at the same time he's a beast. Love for him to sit behind Justin Smith and learn how to be his heir apparent.

Would kill to draft him. He looks like he will be a beast in the NFL.

I think he'd do well at NT, but he's a good pass rusher and you'd be taking that away from him. I could see him being like Cowboy in the 3-4. Setting the end, and still getting after the QB. Purdue is incorporating a hybrid D this year with some 4-3 & 3-4. They have Kawann lining up outside in the 3-4 most times and I think that's his future. He's not as natural a pass rusher as Justin, but he has good initial burst that will make Tackles have a headache all day. He just needs to improve his motor from last year. But he's in better shape this year and it's showing in the way he's been playing.

Short has faced two big challenges this year--Michigan and Norte Dame.

He has done well.

Against Michigan, he had 8 tackles (six solo and two assists), one tackle for a loss, and one pass broken up.

Against Norte Dame, he had 4 tackles and two sacks.
