PROS: Sean McKeon is a sturdy, well put together athlete who has some 3-down ability as a tight end. McKeon is fairly effective as a blocker, he possesses a solid foundation and brings active feet behind his hips to be a persistent thorn in the side of defenders. I like his work as a blocker most when he's assigned inside-out leverage. Soft hands, has little issue with catching the football away from his body. Having a well developed frame will help in staying planted on contested situations and not being knocked loose of potential catches. Pairs that frame and soft hands to good concentration and hand-eye coordination, even when being contacted at the catch.
CONS: Is not quite the kind of athlete that you can plan on being a mismatch in the receiving game. McKeon isn't as appealing in flex situations as he is from an in-line position and doesn't appear as though he's going to stress nickel defenders on reps working up the field. As a route runner, McKeon needs to become more effective in dealing with defenders at the top of route stems. Currently becomes befuddled and struggles to produce a false step from defenders to aid in a clean release and avoid collisions in the secondary. As a blocker, there are instances in which he really struggles to engage his outside hand to gain leverage and hook defenders to cross face and gain outside contain vs. leveraged defenders to the boundary.
