Washington OT Senio Kelemete selected by the Arizona Cardinals

With the 151st overall pick, in the 5th round in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals have selected Senio Kelmete, a guard/tackle out of Washington. Kelemete was a fixture on the Huskies' offensive line after beginning his career on the defensive side of the ball.

Sports Illustrated's prospect scouting database provides a succinct analysis on Kelemte, as a prospect:

Positives: Athletic offensive line prospect who's developing a complete game. Bends his knees, blocks with a wide base and stays square. Quickly gets his hands into defenders, jolts opponents at the point of attack and moves well on his feet. Patient in pass protection and keeps his feet and hands active, sealing defenders from the action. Makes great use of body positioning and blocking angles.

Negatives: Played tackle in college yet may be better off inside at guard in the NFL. Lacks top footwork in pass protection. Really does not finish blocks.

Arizona had a need for tackles, and offensive linemen in general. Kelemete is a great value here, as he once projected as a possible first-round pick.
