Each year there are a few prospects that slip through the cracks or appear as diamonds in the rough…
Scouting Report: Keith O'Neil
Name: Keith O'Neil School: Northern Arizona Year: 4Sr Ht: 6-0.5 Wt: 239 40: 4.65 Pos: OLB Bio: Two time All-Conference selection who broke into the starting lineup midway through his sophomore campaign. Posted 75 tackles with 21 tackles for loss and 5 sacks last year, after 83/15/7 the prior season and 46/10/6 as a sophomore. Pos: Hard working linebacker always looking to get involved in the action. Quickly picks up defensive assignments, explosive moving up the field and adequate speed chasing the play laterally. Disciplined and effectively leads the defense. Neg: Not an explosive or sudden player and better making plays forward rather than in reverse. Undersized and not strong at the point of attack, resulting in broken tackles and the inability to get off blocks. Analysis: Plays with a special teams mentality, which is how he'll make it at the next level.
