Chris Kemoeatu School: Utah
Ht: 6-3.5 Wt: 344 40: 5.38 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Three-year starter and an All-Conference
selection as a senior. Consistently grades out as
one of Utah's better linemen.
Positives: Nasty blocker
with outstanding size. Displays power and jolt at
the point of attack, turns defenders from the
line or easily removes pass rushers out of their
angle of attack. Good blocking vision, effectively
uses angles and quick if asked to kick out or pull
across the line of scrimmage. Gets movement
from run blocks, mashes opponents or engulfs
them at the point of attack. Plays with a nasty
attitude and works to destroy defenders. Extends
his hands to keep opponents away and anchors
in pass protection.
Negatives: Gets tall and not a knee
bender or leverage blocker. Lacks fluid footwork
in space and not effective blocking in motion.
Analysis: A king-sized blocker with surprising
athleticism and overall skill, Kemoeatu has the
abilities to be an immediate and productive starter
at the next level. Stand to shed a few pounds,
which would only improve his agility and skills on
the move but a prospect that could soar up draft
boards with good interviews prior to April.
