2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Kheeston Randall, DT, Texas

Kheeston Randall is a highly experienced defensive tackle prospect from the Texas Longhorns. Randall was primarily asked to occupy double-teams to free up one-on-one situations for his defensive line teammates. Randall wasn't highly productive in 2011, but proved stout against the run by holding his ground and maintaining gap integrity.

Randall's size means he should be considered a viable 3-4 DE or 4-3 DT, although his pass-rushing talents are limited. He does not display an array of swim moves, but can at times use explosion to catch a blocker out of position. He relies on his size too often when tackling in space and needs to wrap up with his arms through the tackle. What is very promising though is that Randall is athletic for his size and shows a lot of potential if coached up. Randall is such a natural physically that he doesn't consistently use the right techniques, which has limited him as a player.

He doesn't do well using his hands to set up where his body wants to go, but that said, he has long arms and a great frame. Currently a bit undervalued, Randall is a likely middle round draft pick.
