|Senio Kelemete Scouting Report
|Senio Kelemete - Washington (HT: 6-3⅝ - WT: 307)
Positives -- Average size for an interior lineman with average strength, has shown the power to control the defender in pass protection while off balance... Flashes above average athleticism for a lineman, is very quick off the line and does a great job getting to quicker defenders downfield... Was asked to pull
and block downfield for the runners often at Washington and did a great job... Does an excellent job finishing plays and displays a mean streak from time to time... Does a good job keeping his legs churning when run blocking... Was a versatile team player at Washington, played three different positions; he moved from defensive tackle to offensive guard to left tackle... A fierce competitor, played against the three of the draft's most talented players all game at the Senior Bowl... Overall, Kelemete is a nice project player; coaches can't teach athleticism and he has plenty of it... Needs to be coached up on technique but if he can improve on his leverage and quickness off the line in pass protection, can eventually develop into an above average starter at offensive guard down the line.
Negatives -- Too small to play the tackle position in the NFL, is better suited inside at guard... Has to be more aggressive, shows a mean streak from time to time but it must be drawn out of him... Needs to improve on a broad range of techniques... The most vital technique for him is his leverage, he plays too high in pass protection and gets beaten on a bull rush almost every time... He needs to use his hands more efficiently, often lets the pass rusher come to him and won't interrupt their technique... Also has to work on keeping is hands inside on the numbers as he has a tendency to grab... Has trouble with faster ends... Is too slow off the line in pass protection causing him to overcompensate with his feet leaving him off balance and susceptible to spin moves... 21 reps of 225 lbs. were a bit disappointing at the combine but shows good strength and power on tape... Still considered a raw offensive line prospect but has a higher ceiling than some other prospects in his range.
