Draft 2011

Pick No.114

Selected By: Jacksonville Jaguars

Round: 4

Pick (Overall): 17 (114)

Pick Analysis: Shorts is a smooth, reliable, intelligent receiver prospect who was highly productive against lower competition but lacks a "wow" factor in terms of size, top-end speed and big-play ability. Is a smart, fluid route-runner who can beat zone but may lack the quick-twitched burst needed to separate from man coverage in the NFL. Susceptible to press coverage and doesn't win many 50/50 battles due to lack of strength but is still a highly competitive guy willing to take punishment over the middle and has very good hands. Shorts is a natural leader and a hard-worker who should be a mid-round selection.
