In fact, with Short turning 24 in about a week, it almost assuredly pushes both into the 2nd round.
This pretty much takes Short (and Williams) off my list at #28.
I know you didn't watch any of the practice at all so what you think really doesn't matter much. Short had 33 and 3/4 arms FYI and Williams had 32 and 5/8 arms.
