Kendell Beckwith NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’2 243lbs
- Versatile-can fit multiple schemes
- Quick hands
- Angles of pursuit are solid
- Football IQ
- Reads QB’s eyes well
Analysis: Kendall Beckwith has experience in the middle with both 3-4 and 4-3 schemes. Takes well-reasoned paths to the ball. Won’t get caught rushing downhill without a plan. Will down into guards as pre-emptive strike before they combo up to him. Maintains his run fits and leverages his gap with an aggressive forearm shiver to short-pulling guards and isolation blockers. Hands are quick with some shock. Eyes are disciplined. Good read and respond but plays the game with patience. Body control a plus. Won’t always be pretty but he gets guys tackled. Awareness in space and overall football IQ is above average. Able to find receivers working through his coverage area. Reads quarterback’s eyes helping him drift toward targets.
- Inconsistent taking on blocks
- Average athleticism
- Not the fastest LB sideline-to-sideline
- Too upright
- Tore ACL in bowl practice
Analysis: Kendall Beckwith is very inconsistent taking on second-level blocks. Athleticism and agility are very average. Could struggle playing sideline to sideline. Has some straight-line burst but takes awhile to unlock hips and chase to the sideline. Plays way too tall. High center of gravity slows his ability to redirect. Missed tackle total too high over last three years. Pad level hinders ability to break down in space and change direction to wrangle shifty running backs. Stiffness in space could spell doom if asked to cover backs out of the backfield. Torn ACL in bowl preparation has damaged his stock.
