 Keon Newson Grade: 3.1
 Position: S
 Class: Sr
 School: Bowling Grn
 Conference: MAC
 Ht., Wt.: 6-0.5, 186
 40 Time: 4.63
 

BIO: First-team All-Conference selection as a senior totaling 66/5/7. Posted career numbers of 124 tackles and 15 pass defenses as a junior. Originally moved into the starting lineup as a freshman.

POSITIVES: Instinctive defensive back best in the box. Works hard to get involved in the action, stays with assignments and does a nice job reading the quarterback. Adequate speed laterally, displays ball skills between the numbers and quick defending the run.

NEGATIVES: Marginal skills in man-to-man coverage as well as overall range in pass defense. Lacks great closing and recovery speed. Does not display great suddenness to his game.

ANALYSIS: A competitive and instinctive prospect, Newson possesses just marginal size/speed numbers for any position in the defensive backfield. Best facing the quarterback, he may flourish in a zone system.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
