Bryan Kehl, OLB, BYU

Both of Bryan's two older brothers (Brandon and Edward) played for the Cougars. Kehl saw extensive action during his true freshman campaign in 2002, making 14 tackles with six being unassisted. He went on to serve the customary two year mission and returned in 2005 starting eleven of twelve games. He made 30 tackles, with 15 unassisted. He also blocked one punt attempt. He was named to the First Academic All Mountain West Conference team. In 2006, Kehl made 70 tackles with eight for losses; he also had three sacks. During his senior season, Kehl had a career season, recording 91 tackles (with 11.5 for loss). He also recorded four sacks and three interceptions. Kehl is a very fast (4.60-40) and athletic player. He has a good football frame and possesses the necessary instincts to drop in coverage -- being better in zone than on man-to-man coverage. He is a ball hawk-type of player, who has good balance and moves smoothly laterally. He is a good (not great) tackler who can hit with force, but tends not to do so. He is not the best open field tackler and needs more coaching and experience. He sometimes plays with overconfidence, causing him to miss coverage assignments. Kehl is not a typical BYU linebacker. He is truly athletic and agile, but needs more coaching and playing time with better competition (but the instincts are there). If he can run under 4.60, he should move up on draft boards. He is currently slated to be a mid-to-late fifth rounder. Kehl really has a chance to be something special at the next level.
