Thomas Keiser scouting report

Thomas Keiser OLB Stanford
Ht: 6’5″

Wt: 244

Good overall size and strength. Experience at both linebacker and defensive end. Decent athleticism. Plays faster than his timed speed; good initial quickness off the snap. Showed a steady improvement and his best football is likely still ahead.
Limited experience dropping into coverage. Only saw significant playing time for two years; made questionable decision to turn pro following junior year. Suffered a pulled hamstring during his pro day.
Keiser may lack the elite athleticism to be a starter at the next level but he has shown enough as a pass rusher to draw interest from teams looking to add depth at 3-4 linebacker. As a situational pass rusher he could be an immediate contributor. In order to see more playing time down the road, however, he’ll need to improve his ability to drop into coverage.
