2012 NFL Draft: More On Cardinals Draft Pick Senio Kelemete

Senio Kelemete, the Arizona Cardinals' fifth round draft pick addressed one of the team's most pressing needs, their offensive line.

The former Washington Huskies offensive tackle started all 13 games in 2011 and was a team captain for the second straight season. Kelemete took home of the award for the team's best offensive lineman at the end of the year banquet.

Though Kelemete played tackle in college, he will be more suited to play guard in the NFL. Kelemete is a tough, athletic and is starter material in the NFL.

Here are his measurements and NFL combine results:

  • 6-4, 307lbs, 33.5",
  • 40 time: 5.52 seconds
  • Bench: 21 reps
  • Vertical: 25'
  • Broad: 08'05"
  • Shuttle: 4.58 seconds
  • Cone: 7.77 seconds

According to his NFL Combine scouting report, Kelemete is an athlete who can come off the ball fast and get in good position for blocks. His weaknesses include some technique deficiencies.
Blocks through the whistle and doesn't give up on the play when the protection starts to break downs. Aggressive at times and flashes a mean streak but not a mauler. Doesn't show enough of a killer instinct. (Via: ESPN)
Kelemete was interviewed by NEPatriotsDraft writer Doug Kyed at the Senior Bowl in January:
