Shorts is very athletic and changes directions well. He runs an average forty time of 4.43, and has very good explosiveness. When I saw him on film the first name I thought of was DeSean Jackson in terms of athleticism.
Shorts is without a doubt an exceptional athlete and a very good football player. In 2009 he was awarded the Ed Sherman Award as the OAC's top Wide Receiver as well as D3football.com's National Offensive Player of The Year. Watching him is like watching DeSean Jackson playing against a group of high school kids, he is that dominating. He catches the ball clean with his hands and immediately turns up field without dancing around. He is extremely athletic and capable of leading his team to wins single handedly.
Jax is typically where WR's go to die, but I like his longterm outlook with a big arm QB like Gabbert.
