What do you think about this kid?

i was watching videos of top rated DTs and for me this is the most impressive DT of the top five.

I am especialy impressed by his ability to locate the football!

No.

44? Maybe.

Short is probably who I hate the most out of this class of DTs.

2011:6.5 sacks, 17.5 TFL

2012: 7 sacks, 15.5 TFL

2011:2 sacks, 8 TFL

2012:4 sacks, 10.5 TFL

2011:1.5 sacks, 6.5 TFL

2012: 3 sacks, 13 TFL

Guess who these players are. Don't buy into hype machines, Short is easily the best UT in this class

I think so, his ability to spot the RB is impressive.

he is an UT, we have alot more pressing needs than a UT.

Kuelchy was not a need..

LB was a need esp with the health of Davis.

On top of that, you cant even begin to compare Kuek's college numbers and Shorts. Completely diff class of players

With that said, I could live with Short in the 2nd. Would prefer Williams, Jenkins, Hunter, Hopkins, or Taylor though.

He is a solid UT

I have seen some other clips on you tube where I am not impressed. However, I am not a good judge of DTs.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
