I like him, with Witten in the division if he has to cover I'm not sold on him. WE HAVE TO STOP WITTEN. He looks good though as a run stopper.
I agree though, we need a LB for sure in round 4.

I like Highsmith alot. I thought he would have been long gone by now. He could fall right into our lap.

Overview



Overview

Nancy
and Gary Kehl have spent the good part of the last 15 years attending
Cougar contests to see their sons play. Brandon was a defensive back on
the 1997 roster and older brother, Ed, was a defensive end at BYU from
1993-98 in between serving on a church mission. But scouts feel that
their youngest, Brian, will be the son to take his game to the next
level as an NFL Draft pick.




Brian is a
natural playmaker who showed marked improvement during his senior year.
An intense offseason workout program saw him shed more than 15 pounds
of bulk, helping increase his stamina and quickness on the field. With
his instincts and athleticism, scouts feel he could be a nice fit as a
weak-side linebacker. With his field vision and quick reactionary
skills, some teams are also looking at beefing him back up for a
possible move to middle linebacker.




"Kehl is
just a flat-out player. He is one of those guys who is always around
the football and is a ball hog and makes a lot of plays," BYU coach
Bronco Mendenhall said. "I have talked to some people out there and
they tell me one thing about this guy, he is not only an athlete but he
has got a mind that is absolutely unreal and football is important to
him."




Kehl earned Salt Lake Tribune
first-team All-State honors as a senior at Brighton High School. He
added academic recognition with a 4.0 grade-point average that gained
him a spot on the Academic All-State team.




The
three-year letter-winner led his team to an 11-1 record and a Region II
championship as a senior, garnering team MVP accolades. He also earned
second-team All-Region and Region II MVP honors and as a junior.




Recruited
by Utah, Oregon, Utah State, Harvard, Yale, Penn and Idaho State, Kehl
enrolled at Brigham Young in 2002. He posted 14 tackles (6 solos) in 11
games as a reserve right outside linebacker before embarking on a
two-year church mission to Toronto.




When he
returned to the gridiron in 2005, he competed in 11 games as the key
backup to Justin Lvettgrodt at right outside linebacker. He collected
30 tackles (15 solos) with a stop for a loss, as he also recovered and
caused a fumble. He also blocked a punt that he recovered for an
11-yard advancement.




Kehl earned All-Mountain
West Conference honorable mention and Academic All-MWC honors as a
junior. He took over weak-side outside linebacker duties, ranking third
on the squad with 70 tackles (35 solos). He added three sacks with
eight stops for losses and recovered a fumble. He also broke up six
passes.




A trimmer Kehl garnered All-Mountain
West Conference first-team accolades as a senior. The team captain
finished second on the squad with a career-high 91 tackles (52 solos),
adding four sacks and 11.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage, in
addition to causing and recovering a fumble. He deflected four passes
and had an interception in three consecutive games, returning one for a
touchdown.




"Last year (2006) I didn't watch
as much film as I could have, and I would have had a better year of
more success had I done that," Kehl said. "One of the things I did to
add to my game this year is a higher study of film -- of myself, of my
own mistakes and my own successes, and also of my opponents so I can
attack their weaknesses."






Career Notes

In
48 games at Brigham Young, Kehl started 26 contests, recording 205
tackles (108 solos) with seven sacks for minus-45 yards, 20.5 stops for
losses totaling 83 yards and a pair of quarterback pressures...Caused
two fumbles and recovered three others...Deflected 10 passes and had
three interceptions for 75 yards in returns, including one touchdown...
Blocked a punt that he recovered for an 11-yard return.







High School

Brighton (Salt Lake City) High School, playing football for head coach
Tom Cushing...Earned Salt Lake Tribune first-team All-State honors as a
senior...Added academic recognition with a 4.0 grade-point average that
gained him a spot on the Academic All-State team...The three-year

They may have used one of this years sixth round picks, or possibly next years. The draft board still says that the Giants have 3 pics in the 6th round. It may not update until the 6th round though, I'm not sure.
