Overview

One of the more underrated linemen in the Big Ten, Kemp's strength and leadership on the left side were keys to the Badgers' running attack. He earned honorable mention All-Big Ten honors as a senior in his third year as a starter. Only a broken hand suffered against Ohio State in the middle of 2007 kept him off the field since his sophomore year. NFL teams look at Kemp as a solid reserve, if not a potential starter, available in the late rounds. Had an arm span of 34 1/8 inches and a hand span of 10 1/2 inches at the combine.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Typical Wisconsin lineman with requisite height, size and toughness. Has the length and strength to move the line of scrimmage. Strong anchor, and typically does not get pushed back into the quarterback by bull rushes. Recovers quickly from a strong punch. Finishes, staying with his man throughout the play. Puts his defender on the ground when blocking down or finding his target in space. Uses his hands and feet to angle defenders out of the play. Negatives: Leans too far forward in pass protection and will get off balance with only adequate recovery speed. Lumbers when pulling or acting as a personal protector, although he is able to hit linebackers straight ahead. A bit slow off the snap, and gets beat by a good first step or quick hand play inside. Must work on moving his feet to pick up blitzes and twists.
