Purdue Prospect not "Short" on Talent, Conducts Private Workout



Now that I am no longer behind the 8 ball in terms of updating college basketball schedules and other loose odds and ends at my real job, I thought I would delve into a report on Purdue defensive tackle Kawann Short.

While I do not know much about him from personal experience, from the lips of my MHR brethren, I have heard wondrous tales of him so per NFL.com's Gil Brandt, this is what I discovered.

Monday, at the West Lafayette, Ind.-based Purdue campus, New Orleans Saints director of college scouting, Rick Reiprish, was among the luminaries attending Short's private workout, while 20 teams were present.

The 6'3" 303-pound Short (it amuses me that his size belies his unfortunate surname), ran the 40-yard dash twice, posting 5.08 and 5.09-second times respectively while he also posted a 27-inch vertical jump and a broad jump of 8 feet and 4 inches.

In the three-cone drill, not often the easiest task for a lineman on either side of the ball, he posted a time of 7.55 seconds and performed the short shuttle in a time of 4.56 seconds.

Additionally, he completed 29 reps of the requisite 225-pound bench press and did all positional drills he was asked to by scouts in attendance.

Brandt, whom I have long admired lists Short as his #41 overall player among his Hot 100 prospect rankings.

I have tried to reach out to friends on Twitter concerning the pro days of Duke, Iowa, Middle Tennessee State and Stephen F. Austin, but presently, I was able to find nothing of substance. Nevertheless, as those of you who follow me on Twitter know, I'm relentless in obtaining my goals. Thanks again for reading and GO BRONCOS!!!

We also appreciate friends from other blogs who visit us, just so long as we remain peaceable and propitious, farewell.
