Prospect Profile: Zak Keasay

Zak Keasay School: Princeton
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 233 40: 4.85 Year: 5Sr

Bio:All-Conference selection as a senior after leading the team in all tackling categories with 127/16/8. Also accounted for 2 interceptions and 4 pass defenses. Started as both a sophomore and junior when he originally led the team in tackles.

Positives: Explosive rundefending linebacker who plays an aggressive brand of football. Breaks down well, chases to get involved in the action and displays terrific quickness. Immediately diagnoses the action, yet disciplined and seemingly has a sixth sense as to what's happening on the field. Collapses well from the outside to defend the run, wraps up tackling and plays with a non-stop motor. Displays a good change of direction and the ability to pursue laterally.

Negatives: Undersized and gets caught up in the wash across the field. Must gather into tackles and slow shedding blocks.

Analysis: A high-revving defender with a good motor and head for the game, Keasay lacks the size to be a starter at the next level, yet should be a competent backup for a 34 defense and a player who potentially stands out on special teams.
