He enjoyed his best statistical season as a junior with 54 tackles, 17.0 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks. Short was the focus of every team's offensive gameplan in 2012, but still managed 14.5 tackles for loss and 6.0 sacks despite battling an ankle injury for several games.STRENGTHS: Large human being with a huge wingspan, using his long arms to bat down passes and make plays on special teams. Showed determination and team-first attitude in playing through ankle injury in 2012. Can be an immovable object in the middle of the field when he plays disciplined and generates power from his lower body.
WEAKNESSES: Too often gives streaky effort and doesn't consistently play with leverage. Saw a lot of double-teams, but scouts want to see more of a mean streak and less passiveness. While Short will be an attractive pro prospect because of his natural size and tools, he needs to prove he can be consistently more than just a plugging space-eater.Put him beside Star with no double teams and let that ankle heal,let's see what he can do.

Open a notepad file an mark a "l" for every time he beats a block (not makes a play but just beats a block) without question. He's a Panther now and I wish him the best but I basically hate the pick. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wWOpR_t0TM

My philosophy on corners and defensive backs is that they don't mean jack unless you have a defensive line that can help them out. I think we now have that for sure, and we've taken care of the age issue on the line by leaps and bounds.I think my biggest concern moving forward is the offensive line, and the offensive side of the ball, which we've done little to address. Right now Cam is still going to take a lot of hits. I feel like our 3 key pass catchers are able, in Smith, LaFell, and Olsen, but I really want someone to plug in at the slot, and Smith isn't getting any younger. I have faith that Gettis or Adams could make a difference, but I've sold the Pilares down the river. Is Ginn really the answer?how confident are we in our safeties?

Falcons fan: What worries me? That one day Cam will grow up and become a leader of men, focus on others instead of himself, and show courage.

QCHeel wrote: I couldn't tell you the first thing about this guy, But a few points about our picks:1) Gettleman was with the Giants last year....when they played us. He saw the Gians OL and Andre Brown and others completely destroy our D-line. Just manhandle it for the entire game. After seeing that, his first goal could've very easily been that he's gotta stuff this line. Very understandable and I agree it was necessary.2) Star is clearly a stud, but what the investment in the first two rounds to the DL allows us to do is something special. It allows our BEST players on defense to be better. Way better. In the NFL, teams always have a successful player that they expect to be successful the following year. But then other teams watch tape and prepare for them. That was my fear for Kuechly and to a smaller extent Greg Hardy. Now, with Beason coming back, Kuechly, Johnson, and Hardy can take that next step without having that fear.

Guys his size aren't supposed to be able to dunk....He is quick (when he actually plays) on the football field but I'm not impressed by side show type tricks. Remember Jarron Gilbert jumping out of a pool a few years back. Remember Kyle Boller throwing the ball 50 yards through the uprights from his knees. Not trying to steal his thunder because he's got some athletic ability but I'm just very careful about guys who's stock improve because they can juggle oranges while singing the national anthem.
