2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Keith Ismael, C, San Diego State Aztecs

Career Snapshot
Three-year starter who earned First Team All-Mountain West honors in each of his final two seasons at San Diego State. Earned Second Team All-Mountain West honors as a redshirt freshman in 2017. Made 14 starts at center and 11 at right guard during his first two seasons with the Aztecs before he moved to center full-time. Missed one game in 2018 with a concussion.

Positives
Explosive center who was very durable at the college level. Explosive at the point, fires off the snap and plays tough, nasty football. Bends his knees, gets leverage on opponents and keeps his feet moving. Stays square, fights with his hands and shows the ability to slide in space. Fluid and effective in motion. Effective with the shotgun snap. Displays vision, works well with teammates and plays through the whistle.

Negatives
Possesses average power and really doesn’t get much movement as a run blocker. Struggles to adjust. Tested poorly at the combine and really does not come across as an athletic blocker.

Analysis
Ismael was reliable and dependent for San Diego State, but he needs time to further develop his game. With proper coaching, Ismael could eventually find himself in a starting role on Sundays.
