Bryan Kehl Adds Speed, Smarts, Depth

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 23, 2012 – 12:33 pm

The Redskins made a savvy move with the addition of Bryan Kehl this morning, further stocking the team’s linebacker reserves and bolstering special teams.  Kehl was a 2008 draftee of the Giants, and has spent the last three seasons in St. Louis.

Kehl is an outside linebacker in the 4-3, and will likely shift to the inside slot in the 3-4.  As a senior at BYU, he put up some of the fastest times for linebackers (4.55), and has a history of chasing down faster ball-carriers from behind. He was also named BYU’s defensive MVP and earned the Strength & Conditioning Award as a senior in 2007, showing a willingness to outwork his teammates.

Kehl also brings a good combination of book smarts and football smarts to the team.  At BYU, he majored in mechancial engineering and returned to finish his degree during NFL offseasons.  As far as football smart, this was the description on his Combine bio page:

High character player who is willing to work hard to improve. Instinctive. Reads the action quickly and puts himself in position to make a play on the ball…A tireless worker on and off the field, Kehl is recognized as a team leader who does whatever it takes to win.

With the departure of Rocky McIntosh and Keyaron Fox in free agency, Kehl seems to be a quality addition.  In Washington, he will also be reunited with college quarterback John Beck.

Awesome.

Here is highlight tape from his time at BYU:

    speed isnt everything in football, you need to be able to disect the play and have great instincts. is he fast? i would say so. is he a great footbal player? no yet. mayb ea switch to a 3-4 will be good for him. he seems to be slow in reading the plays. but….hes coachable and if he works out a great pick up. tiime will tell…goos signing though at this time of the year…

    The scouting report on the guy goes as follows………

    High character player who is willing to work hard to improve. Instinctive. Reads the action quickly and puts himself in position to make a play on the ball…A tireless worker on and off the field, Kehl is recognized as a team leader who does whatever it takes to win.

    A professional scouting report has him as instinctive, and the ability to read the play quickly………
