RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

When Short was a potential draft pick out of Purdue, the question wasn't whether he had talent. The blessings were always self-evident, but it was unclear if he'd show the motor and consistency needed for his talent to manifest. At this point there is no question Short is one of the most dominant linemen in the league, and he's the anchor for one of the league's most feared defenses. Even as a big-bodied run stopper, Short demonstrated uncommon disruptiveness in 2015. The sack total (11) will probably drop, but he's still among the few tackles that stand out as useful IDPs.

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.
