2021 NFL Draft Prospect: Kenny Yeboah, TE, Ole Miss

Kenny Yeboah Ole miss draft break down
Ole Miss tight end Kenny Yeboah is a big kid with great hands. He has really blown up since getting to Ole Miss and has become a main target for the Rebels offense.

Kenny Yeboah is a big and lanky tight end, that you have to respect because he can tear up your defense. Ask Alabama if you do not believe me. He finished with 7 receptions for 181 yards and 2 touchdowns. Yeboah joined Ole Miss this spring, after a solid career at Temple.

Yeboah stands at 6’4 and weighs 240 pounds. When you watch him on film, he has some speed, he is a little stiff, but he has proven to be a playmaker for the Rebels. At Temple before transferring to Ole Miss, Yeboah appeared in 38 games, and started 11 at tight end.

He would finish his career at Temple with 47 receptions for 538 yards and 6 touchdowns in four years. Yeboah at Ole Miss is making strides to smash his career stats at Temple.

So far in 7 games, Kenny Yeboah has 25 receptions for 509 yards and 6 touchdowns. He is matching his career totals in one year. He is averaging 20.4 yards per catch and also averages 72.7 yards per game.

Yeboah has to get strong in his legs, but he is such a big body that he is hard to defend in the red zone. NFL teams are going to like his abilities.

NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes

Every NFL team is looking for a big body in the redzone, and Kenny Yeboah is a guy that can make plays. He reminds me a lot of Donald Parham for the Chargers. Both are taller players, athletic, they can go up and get a ball, but lack strength in their legs. Both look like they skip leg day in the gym. Yeboah will play at the next level, and his transition from Temple to Ole Miss has been a huge blessing. He is getting it done for the Rebels. – Damond Talbot, Owner, NFL Draft Diamonds
