4. Kingsley Keke – Mid to Late Rounds
As mostly a defensive tackle who then played defensive end out of necessity and the emergence of Mack and Madubuike, Keke didn’t put up monster numbers, but his value to the Aggie defense was undeniable.
In three years as a rotational player / starter, Keke totaled 12.5 sacks, 21 tackles for loss and 150 tackles. His final season was by far his best, finishing with 11 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks. NFL teams will salivate over his versatility. He can play anywhere on a defensive line and be disruptive.
He most likely projects as a defensive tackle at the next level. Teams typically employ defensive ends who blend elite speed with power, and Keke does not have the elite speed. He will need to join a team who has a defensive tackle that already eats up double teams as he can get engulfed by these.
Keke has remarkable ability to pass rush from the interior, which is a terrific trait to carry to the next level. If he proves himself capable as a run defender he would start for any NFL team.
