Ed “Pi Double i” Henderson
The Los Angeles Rams have signed a pair of additional UDFA players, linebacker Tegray Scales of Indiana University, and defensive tackle Dalton Keene Dalton Keene of Illinois State. Scales was the player that was projected on a few mock draft boards of being the Rams #87 overall pick.
Tegray Scales Highlights
Tegray Scales, the Ohio Associated Press Co-Defensive Player of the Year, has agreed with the Rams to UDFA contract. Scales outstanding year led him to record 102 tackles, 13 sacks, and two interceptions. He was not recruited heavily out of high school because he was a undersized linebacker.
Scales named All-Big Ten as a senior, as led the Hoosiers with 89 total tackles (12.5 tackles for loss), six sacks, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries.
Dalton Keene Highlights
Dalton Keene, the 6’4”275-pound defensive tackle of Illinois State, finished third in the MVFC Defensive Player of the Year voting, receiving first-team accolades after compiling 45 tackles (13 tackles for loss), eight sacks, six pass break-ups, and two fumble recoveries.
Keene needs to gain about 20 pounds in order to solidify a natural position, as he has the frame of a defensive end and strength of a defensive tackle.
