Great write up! I think our Rookie DT's will struggle some in the first year, which is very common. I think we have a definite future stud in Star though. Still not sold on Short. Pass rush specialist DT's tend to bust at an extremely high rate IMO. I think they get down on themselves when they dont have immediate production and arent able to get sexy numbers against NFL O lineman.


I think Short will be fine. Similar to Star, Kawann played a large number of snaps and didn't have a great supporting cast. He has the fastest first step of all DTs in this draft and possesses an array of pass rushing moves that Richardson and Floyd lack. 7 sacks and 17 TFLs are impressive stats. We got an anchor in Star, a good passing duo in Hardy and Johnson, a solid rotational player in Dwan, an up-and-comer in Alexander and depth with Kearse, Cole and possibly Chandler. KK will thrive here.

Out of curiosity I went to see how many Pac 12 O-Linemen made it in the draft. I got 2 - a 4th and a 6th. So he hasn't really had to face elite linemen.

 

On the other hand the Pac -12 isn't the gulf south either.

 

Can't wait to see him play
