Kawann Short, DT, Purdue Boilermakers (6-3, 299)
After grabbing Star Lotulelei in the first round, Carolina follows that acquisition up with defensive tackle Kawaan Short in the second round. These two picks turn the Panthers' interior defensive line, which was a major weakness in 2012, into a strength and gives their defense a chance to take a huge step forward in 2013. I love new GM Dave Gettlemen's first two draft picks.
