Jordan White Patriots Draft

All Western Michigan WR Jordan White does is lead the nation in receiving.

NEPD Staff Writer: Mike Loyko

Here we are yet again with the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl featuring Purdue and Western Michigan-I can hardly contain my excitement. Here are the top 2012 NFL Draft prospects to watch on each team.

Purdue’s Top Prospect

#93 DT Kawann Short*

– Short measures up at 6’3″ 305 pounds
– A disruptive interior force- Makes a ton of plays behind the line of scrimmage as evidence by his 17 tackles for a loss
– Good short area quickness
– Utilized on a lot of slants and stunts which free him up
– Has good use of hands and can shed blockers- A very good interior pass rusher, 6.5 sacks on the year, including 3 in the Ohio St. game
– Gets way to over-aggresive at times which leaves big holes in the middle of the defense
– Gets block far too often for a player of his talent
– Consistant effort level is a question mark
– Short is only a junior so it’s likely he could return for his senior year

Western Michigan’s Top Prospect

#83 WR Jordan White

– White is an ultra-productive possesion WR, who leads the nation in receiving
– White has very solid hands
– Doesn’t allow the ball to get into his body
– Works the middle of the field as good as any WR in the country
– Isn’t afraid to take a hit- Decent size for a WR at 6ft.
– Most likely a slot WR at the next level
– Makes a ton of plays after the catch- Isn’t going to wow anybody with his speed or combine numbers
– Just  makes plays and is reliable as any WR
– Has torn both of his ACLs which is a major red flag to NFL teams.

Others to watch:
#14 QB Alex Carder(Jr.), #1 FS Doug Wiggins
