6-2, 200 pounds

2012 season: 275-407, 67.6%, 3,373 yds., 27 TD, 9 INT; 129 carries, 619 yds., 4.8 avg., 8 TDs

Keeton is an exicting dual-threat quarterback currently in his junior season. In the first two games of 2013, he's thrown for 674 yards with almost an 80% completion percentage, with 7 TDs and only one pick. He's also rushed for 7.0 yards per carry and has scored a touchdown.

Keeton won't "wow" you with his arm strength, but he gets the ball where it needs to be accurately with touch. He extends plays with his legs and is a great runner in space. His versatility is valuable to an NFL offense, and his footwork and accuracy are NFL caliber. With more good decisions in the pocket and big plays with his feet, Keeton looks like a good fifth-round option for an NFL team looking for a mobile QB.
