BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who totaled 73/6/1, intercepted one pass, and broke up six more as a senior. Junior-year totals included 69/8/1 when he struggled with an ankle injury.
POSITIVES: Instinctive, disciplined linebacker with marginal size and speed. Immediately diagnoses the action, efficient, and takes good angles to the play. Moves well in the box, shows a good head for the ball, and works hard to make the tackle.
NEGATIVES: Lacks top range to the sidelines, struggles in coverage, and slow changing direction. Ducks his head and misses tackles.
ANALYSIS: McKeon has been a consistent run defender the past three years at Nebraska, yet he offers limited upside for the next level. A special teams prospect who could find a home as a backup inside linebacker.
