BIO: Full-time starter the past two seasons and second-team all-conference selection last season after totaling 59/17/10.5. Also intercepted two passes and broke up seven more. Junior totals included 34/9/4.
POSITIVES: Explosive, interior defender limited by size. Quick off the snap with a good first step, plays low with leverage and rarely off his feet. Uses solid hand technique to stay off blocks, agile and makes plays off the line of scrimmage. Hard worker that chases to get involved in the action.
NEGATIVES: Lacks bulk and strength on the inside. Easily pushed off the line of scrimmage. Lacks a sustained burst of speed.
ANALYSIS: Though undersized and lacking growth potential, Kennard's ability to play with quickness and leverage makes him an ideal prospect to be a three-technique lineman.
