    Strong Points: Played both inside and outside in the Texas A&M scheme. Good size and length with very good overall athletic ability and speed. Flashes as a playmaker but more in the pass game than vs. the run. Plays with strength and is effective as a pass rusher both inside and outside. Tested well in Indy.

    Weak Points: Inconsistent effort level. Just goes through the motions on some plays. Seldom plays hard vs. the run. Gets tall and is slow off blocks. Very average pursuit player. Lacks top instincts and can lose sight of ball.

    The Way We See It: Keke is talented but an underachieving player. When he wants to play, he can be difficult to block and quite disruptive, but there are too many plays in which he just watches and does nothing. He played both inside and outside at Texas A&M but is best suited to play inside at the NFL level. He can play as a 3-tech in a 4-man front or as a 5-tech in a 3-4 scheme. With his quickness he is best suited for the 3-tech position. He has the talent to become a solid rotational player, but he must learn to play hard every down. NFL coaches won't put up with just occasional effort. My number grade is based more on talent than production.
