Cecil Shorts Scouting Report
Cecil Shorts
Cecil Shorts - Mount Union (HT: 5-11¾ - WT: 205)
Combine 40: 4.59 - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 25 of 60

Positives: Strong upper body, put up 21 bench reps of 225 pounds at the combine... Great acceleration off the line of scrimmage, ran the three-cone drill in 6.50 seconds at the combine, fourth best amongst all receivers... Solid build, has a good amount of bulk on his frame... Incredibly productive, completely dominated division three competition... Good route runner, gets in and out of his routes quickly... Smart player, a converted quarterback who understands where the soft spots are in zone coverage... Good at plucking the ball on the run... Can line up outside or in the slot.

Negatives: Has trouble against physical corners, gets bumped off his routes too easily... Did not play against elite talent, most of the corners he faced at Mount Union will never smell an NFL roster... Just a marginal athlete, doesn't have great top-end speed and doesn't have the size to stand out in the NFL... Below-average leaping ability... More of a straight-line runner, has just average change-of-direction ability and is not a great runner in space... Poor blocker, doesn't give consistent effort to wall off defenders... Does not cut well when running at full speed.
