The Arizona Cardinals selected offensive guard/defensive tackle Senio
Kelemete from the University of Washington
with the 151st pick overall Saturday.
Kelemete will likely be lined up as a guard with the Arizona Cardinals,
despite playing multiple positions through his career in Washington.
Kelemete is a great athlete for his size, who gets off the ball quickly.
He received All-Pac 12 Conference second-team honors in 2011.
The UW captain was also the recipient of the
Fred Jacoby Sportsmanship Award at the Valero Alamo Bowl and was named
the John P. Angel Offensive Lineman of the
Year Award at the team’s postseason banquet.
Having previously received action in eight games as a defensive tackle
during his freshman season, Kelemete shifted to the offensive line with new
staff arrival in 2009.
He started 41-of-45 games at Washington – 26 at left offensive tackle,
eleven at right offensive guard and four at
left defensive tackle.
Kelemete started all thirteen games at left offensive tackle in 2011, where
he led the Huskies with a career-high 106 knockdowns while delivering
thirteen touchdown-resulting blocks.
