Areas for Improvement
Kelleher is a big offensive lineman who has played more inside at guard than he has on the island at tackle. He has the frame to be a tackle and his feet combined with length could make him very attractive as a right tackle on the next level. He is best though when pulling, when firing off the ball, and when he is able to get to the second level to take care of the opponent. He plays with good pad level and he is very good coming out of his stance. He is still improving on his technique in pass-pro and that will take some time. He has to continue to develop in that area and his footwork is getting better. He has solid strength, but that is something he can still improve also.
What stands out about Kelleher as much as anything is his nasty attitude on the football field. He is like a gentle giant – Very nice off the field with a near perfect 4.0 GPA, but on the field, he looks to finish the guy in front of him. He carries that smarts in the classroom on the field, so that makes him that much more valuable. He picks up on things quickly, he likes to finish his blocks, and he could play guard or tackle on the next level. Kelleher is a top 30 tackle in the country and he could ascend up the rankings with a strong senior season. He is set to graduate in December.
