Round 5 #150 - Kingsley Keke DL
« on: April 27, 2019, 12:44:02 PM »

Kingsley Keke
Defensive tackle
SCHOOL: TEXAS A&M | CONFERENCE: SEC
HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 6-2.5 / 288 | 40: 4.95 | DRAFT YR:2019
PROJECTED ROUND
4th


Pos:
Athletic defensive-line prospect with nice size. Quick off the snap, plays with knee bend and fluidly moves laterally. Shows the ability to get down the line of scrimmage and outside the box to make plays. Holds his ground against blocks and effectively fights with his hands.


Neg:
Did not show much skill as an edge rusher when used at defensive end compared to the inside. Handled by blocks and wears down over the course of a game.


Analysis:
Keke showed consistent development and comes with upside as well as growth potential. He's a solid athlete who should see time on a rotational basis as a rookie and eventually develop into a starter if he continues to progress on the field.

The more I look and read, the more I like this pick. This kid is a versatile athlete with intriguing upside.
The Green Bay Packers never lost a football game.
They just ran out of time.

Well, PFF thinks the Packers got one of the SOD's (Steals Of the Draft) in Keke.

https://packerswire.usatoday.com/2019/05/01/pff-packers-got-a-draft-steal-in-dl-kingsley-keke/

[Michael Renner of PFF views Keke as a potentially valuable interior pass rusher, especially after he “dominated” one-on-one matchups during practices at the Senior Bowl.

“Keke played a tad out of position at Texas A&M, where he took 62.2% of his snaps lined up over or outside the tackle. At 288 pounds, he realistically translates best to three-technique or interior rusher at the next level,”

Not only does Keke have length (34.5″ arms) and quickness (4.95 40-yard dash), but he also produced as a disruptor after dropping weight and playing more on the edge last season.
Moving him back inside could give him a chance to blossom as a subpackage rusher.]

Keke was a player I thought was too much a tweener. Got to admit that putting a few good pounds on him could make him a beast in the middle. He will be pushing Adams to get better or sit on the bench and then out the door.

In cases of those adverse to clicking on links Danno, I copied the PPF comments on Keke.

   Pick 150 – DI Kingsley Keke, Green Bay Packers
Keke played a tad out of position at Texas A&M, where he took 62.2% of his snaps lined up over or outside the tackle. At 288 pounds, he realistically translates best to three-technique or interior rusher at the next level. And in that role, he dominated at the Senior Bowl practices in Mobile. He had the highest win rate and highest grade among all defensive linemen in attendance in the one-on-ones.
