Let's use today's 2012 NFL Draft Prospect Profile to look at another offensive lineman who might interest the New York Giants this April.
Draft Tek has Washington offensive guard Senio Kelemete going to the Giants in the third round in itslatest mock draft simulation, the 95 overall selection. Per CBS Sports, that is just about right for the athletic, but inexperienced Kelemete.
"Kelemete is light on his feet and made steady gains in his second season as a starting left tackle, earning second-team all-conference honors in 2011 and a spot on the Senior Bowl. Ultimately, Kelemete's moderate height and arm length, however, is likely to force him back inside in the NFL. Considering his pass blocking potential, his best fit may ultimately be at left guard. Considering his versatility, potential as a pass blocker and aggression as a run blocker, Kelemete could earn consideration within the top 100 picks."
We know general manager Jerry Reese loves athletes. And he loves players with upside. Kelemete seems to fit both criteria.
"Kelemete has been a steady presence for Washington for four years and shown versatility across not only the offensive, but the defensive line, throughout his career. He started at defensive tackle in 2008, then switched to offensive guard for the 2009 season before starting the past two at left tackle. He is an athlete for such a big body, and it has shown at Washington."
"A gifted athlete with a strong base, strong hands and a passion for the game. Needs to clean up his footwork and his body type makes me think he's more of a guard only prospect. But has the skill set to fly up draft boards and if he improves his technique could be one of the first guards selected in 2012."
