Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about DALTON KEENE: Virginia Tech, 6041 253 4.73. Junior entry, three-year starter, Littleton, CO. Honorable mention All ACC in 2018. Caught 59 career passes good for 748 yards and eight scores. Lined up as an inline tight end and H-back. The former running back has good run after catch ability. Athletic after the catch. Determined runner who fights for extra yards. Good open field instincts. Flashes a burst plus stop and go quickness. Could use more upper and lower body strength to hold up on Sundays. A position wall off blocker who doesn’t always secure the edge. Needs to bend his knees and improve his punch. Drops his head in pass pro at times when he stays in to block. Loses his man. A competitor who gives good effort blocking and running routes. Can make the circus catch up high or lay out for the low pass. Can track the ball over either  shoulder. May be a better pro than in college if he gets the ball thrown his way. A developing size and speed prospect. 2019 stats: 21-240, 11.4 ypr, 5 TD. OSR:3/19. Fifth/sixth round. (A-32 1/4, H- 9 3/4, VJ-34, SS-4.19).
