RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Through his first two seasons, Short has emerged as a dynamic interior defensive lineman. In an expanded role last season, the 2014 second-rounder accumulated 40 tackles, 3.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble. Now slated for a full-time starter's role at defensive tackle, Short's stock could continue to climb in Year 3.

2014

Short, Carolina's second-round selection last season, developed nicely over the course of his rookie campaign, finishing with 30 tackles (18 solo) and 1.5 sacks. In Year Two, Short could unseat veteran Dwan Edwards as the Panthers' starting defensive tackle next to Star Lotulelei. With that in mind, a slight boost in production could be in store for the athletically gifted Short.

2013

An impressive athlete for someone his size, Short will play behind Dwan Edwards at defensive tackle this season, but figures to see his share of playing time nonetheless.
