BIO: Two-time Sun Belt Player of the Year and brother to former Arkansas safety Kenoy Kennedy, now with the Denver Broncos. Totaled 66/17/6 as a senior after junior totals of 76/24/10. Posted 38/6/1 as a sophomore.

POSITIVES: High-revving, productive collegian who lacks the pure height for the next level. Explodes off the snap with a great first step, plays with excellent pad level and pushes opponents up the field. Bears down on the ball carrier with a great burst of closing speed and redirects to the action well. Goes hard sideline-to-sideline and displays speed to the flanks. Explosion off the ball and overall quickness gives him the upper hand and causes problems for blockers trying to stop him. Terrific technique with his hands, tenacious and keeps coming. Also, displays the skill to drop off the line and play in space.

NEGATIVES: Short and engulfed at the line and though physically strong, still gets wired in blocks at the point.

ANALYSIS: On film Kennedy really stands out and would seem to be a terrific prospect for the next level. But factoring in he barely touches the tape measure at 5-10, one must severely downgrade him. The type of prospect very similar to Joe Klecko; will be downgraded because poor measurables yet a competitor that will find a way to make it at the next level.

PROJECTION: Mid Fifth Round
