    Thomas Keiser - any use as a 3-4 OLB?

    Just been doing my "due diligence" on a number of mid-round prospects that could be of interest to the Jets.

    One guy whose name came up in one of the preview mags that I don't know a lot about is Thomas Keiser, DE-OLB from Stanford.

    Coming out as a junior when a lot of people thought he might stay in school. Has very good size and apparently has decent pass rush skills and experience as both a pass-rushing DE and as a 3-4 OLB. Not great speed (around 4.8 in the 40) but some feeling that he might be able to make it as a 3-4 OLB in the NFL with some work.

    Anyone seen a lot of him or have an opinion on him? Might he be a decent developmental pick in say the 5th round if the Jets don't address the OLB spot early in the draft?

    strictly a 4-3 DE, even by the admission of those around him....very limited athlete who i think struggles getting out of camp...

    should've stayed in college another year but word was he had enough of school...

    OK, thanks CBNY. I guess I can scratch him off my mock draft lists!

    if you hadn't you should now....

    Keiser was not invited to the combine, ran the forty at Stanford's pro-day but pulled up...he was unable to complete the shuttles/3cone/position drills...he set up a second workout yesterday to coincide with the workout of Taiwan Jones as Jones' workout venue was 40 minutes from Standford....no one showed up for Keiser's workout..ouch...
