Jordan White Patriots Draft

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

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
