Pauls corner-part 2
Kennedy signed with Ohio State out of high school, but was ruled academically ineligible and chose to sign with Akron. He is listed at 5’11 and weighing around 200 pounds. Being at Akron does not give him as much national exposure then if he was at OSU, but he is still someone to keep an eye on. He hits the holes hard and can be tough to bring down. The knock on him is that he’s not as fast as other running backs in college football, and showed inconsistency during the 2006 season. Half of his games he got at least 100 yards, while in the others he had very poor performances, sometimes not even getting 50 rushing yards. To give him credit, it was his first year as the starter and he finished with just less than 1000 rushing yards. He is someone who will hopefully improve with experience although he will probably never receive the attention other college running backs do. My best guess is he will be a UFA when he chooses to enter for the draft but could catch on with an NFL team as a third string running back depending on how hard he works. Most likely he will never get a starting spot on a NFL team but I see him as someone with potential to make a 53 man roster.
