Zach Kerr is one of those players who started the post-season well, and just kept building momentum.
It started at the Shrine game where according to Tony Pauline, Kerr, “was explosive and showed a variety of skill.”
He tested well at the combine, running a 5.08 at 6-1 and 326lbs. Pauline again singled him out for praise, listing him among his top defensive risers in Indianapolis: “He moved well in position drills showing not just straight line speed, but lateral quickness and the ability to easily change direction.”
At his pro-day on March 18th, the Seahawks sent their defensive line coaches to get a closer look.
In the video above you see flashes of quality. He can collapse the pocket, work into the backfield and make splash plays. He’s got a relentless attitude, the motor keep running until the whistle. There’s enough burst there to think he can have an impact at the next level.
He also has fairly long arms for his height (nearly 33 inches).
I’m away with work until Sunday night so unfortunately I’ve had to keep this brief. The Seahawks are likely to be searching for depth on the defensive line and Kerr’s one to keep an eye on in the mid-to-late rounds.
