Explanation of Player Grading System


The Breakdown

Keenum was on pace to set several NCAA all-time passing records before he tore his ACL only 3 games into the 2010 football season. Keenum was a redshirt senior in 2010, so it’s doubtful that he will apply for a medical redshirt to return to Houston in 2011. It is more likely for him to concentrate on getting healthy in time for the 2011 NFL Combine.
