2008 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Stanford Keglar, OLB, Purdue

Stanford Keglar has had a solid, but unspectacular career at Purdue. The 2007 Boilermaker Co-Captain finished the season with 70 tackles (4 tackles for loss) and 3 passes broken up in coverage. One of the issues scouts are going to have with Keglar is his lack of production, given his athleticism. He is a big outside linebacker at 6'2" and 247 lbs. Keglar also possess remarkable speed for his size, but was often burnt in coverage and rarely got to the quarterback on blitzes throughout his career. His numbers during his 4 years at Purdue are solid. He tallied 250 tackles (13 tackles for loss), only 1.5 sacks, 3 interceptions, and 5 passes broken up in coverage. He showed improvement over his career in college, but not at the rate his coaches would have hoped for. Keglar's athletic ability will lead someone to draft him in the late rounds. He should be a good special teams contributor and with time and coaching could develop into a starting linebacker in the NFL. Stanford Keglar attended the 2008 East-West Shrine Game. He played well, but didn't particularly stand out amongst the linebackers. This would have been a good opportunity to showcase his play making skills, but as usual, he put on a lackluster performance. Keglar should hear his name called between rounds 5 and 7. Stanford Keglar raised his stock by leaps and bounds at the NFL Combine. Keglar scored toward the top of every event in Indianapolis. He ran a 4.58 40 yard dash and finished the 20 yard shuttle in just 3.98 seconds. Keglar also hoisted 29 reps on the bench press. Keglar is a bigger 4-3 outside linebacker, but showed he has the speed to play at the NFL level. Keglar was a late fifth or sixth round pick before the Combine, but now could go as early as the end of round four. Stanford Keglar is yet another Purdue University prospect who continues to look better every time he steps on the field. Keglar improved his impressive combine 40 time by running a 4.55 40 yard dash. He also registered a 39 inch vertical leap. Keglar has solidified himself as a late fourth or early fifth rounder.
