Player Overview

With Central Michigan's Eric Fisher earning the No. 1 overall selection in 2013, scouts are more frequently recognizing the MAC as a legitimate source for NFL talent. In Kerin, a three-time all-conference selection, their efforts could be rewarded. Kerin starred at Toledo but found the competition tougher at the East-West Shrine Game, where his odd build (for an interior lineman) and average lateral agility allowed defenders to slip past. Given a chance to develop, he could surprise in the NFL. If he does, it may come at guard rather than center.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Quicker off the ball than he looks, showing the ability to get out to the second level. Reliable shotgun snapper. Keeps his head on a swivel, reacting well to blitzes. Gets a strong initial pop on the initial defender but switches off quickly to slow oncoming rushers. Understands blocking angles and is a willing and typically effective cut-blocker. Tenacious. Doesn't give up on his assignment if beaten initially. Possesses the length to project outside to guard for some. Improved at East-West Shrine Game practices after struggling with quickness initially. WEAKNESSES: Could be viewed as a 'tweener. Possesses a lanky frame (and only average strength) for the interior but may not possess the lateral agility or balance to handle the adjustment to the outside. Plays too high and shows only average upper body strength to control defenders at the point of attack. Bends at the waist, leaving himself vulnerable to the bull-rush. Gets to the second level quickly but does not adjust to defenders well, showing limited flexibility and change of direction overall. COMPARES TO: Harvey Dahl, St. Louis Rams - It took Dahl three seasons in the NFL before establishing himself as a starter, and a similarly challenging road to success can be expected for Kerin. He possesses the build and surprising quickness to intrigue as a developmental prospect on the interior and has the tenacity to make up for his lack of overall athleticism. --Rob Rang (2/2/14)
