SI Grade

Position:
OLB
Class:
Sr
School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
6-2.5, 242
40 Time:
4.68

BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after tackling numbers of 91/11.5/3.5. Also intercepted three passes and broke up four more. Junior-year numbers included 70/8/3.

POSITIVES: Active linebacker who plays sideline-to-sideline. Immediately diagnoses the action, forceful up the field on the blitz, and has a quick burst to the play. Gets depth on drops, covers a good amount of area on the field, and displays speed in every direction. Aggressive and likes to hit hard. Quarterbacks the defense and gets his teammates in proper position.

NEGATIVES: Not a sure tackler. Struggles getting off blocks once engaged.

ANALYSIS: Kehl is an active linebacker who has watched his game improve the past two seasons. Tough against the run, he also displays skill in coverage and could develop into a starter on the weak side by his second season in the league.

PROJECTION: Middle Third Round
