Kaindoh appeared in three games with one start in his junior campaign (nine tackles, 2.5 for loss, with one sack) but was lost for the rest of the year with a lower leg injury. He started eight games in 2020, making 13 tackles, three for loss, and returned an interception for a touchdown. -- by Chad Reuter

Overview
Former five-star defensive end who looks the part but doesn't have the production to go with the traits. Kaindoh has good length but is inconsistent in activating it properly, as his upper-body strength falls a little short. He doesn't have the natural gait and fluid movements of fellow FSU defensive end prospect Janarius Robinson and tends to stay blocked once his opponent gets into his frame. There are occasional flashes as a rusher, but if he doesn't take an early lead, he's unlikely to get home. He might be worth a look later in the draft based purely upon the traits.
Strengths
  • Long, NFL-caliber frame with even more room for muscle.
  • Adequate upfield spring off the snap and into neutral zone.
  • Initial quickness and body lean help him knife into B-gap on slants.
  • Uses length to separate and set the edge.
  • Capable of getting from one edge to the other with his rush counter.
  • Speed-to-power conversion potential as a pro.
  • Length could become more effective rush weapon with work.
Weaknesses
  • Has dealt with injuries and made just 10 career starts.
  • Looked as though he were favoring left ankle at times.
  • Play tends to be segmented and lacks athletic fluidity.
  • Doesn't use size traits to command the rep.
  • Below-average rush with only one sack in his last 11 games.
  • Inaccurate hand slaps fail to open outside rush lanes.
  • Not enough bend to dip below punch at top of the rush.
  • Runs out of gas during chase.

Classic Spags end.

But I don't know if he's that athletic - didn't see a lot of burst.

He has more burst than KPass ever had.

He had a 1.58 10 yard split.

He also had a great RAS.

There’s a reason he was a 5 star recruit. He absolutely is “that athletic”.

Speaks wasn’t remotely close to Kaindoh in terms of athleticism.

His 10 yard split is 1.58. That's a lot of burst.

Breeland Speaks 10 yard split is 1.64.

The only burst Speaks will ever have is maybe a blocked artery

Too raw to have been a draft pick in my opinion. Seemed like a UDFA guy. After watching KPass not develop much as a similar type of athletic prospect with little skill, I'm not expecting a whole hell of a lot. Would have taken Ogundeji, at least he flashed some significant potential.

That said, it's a day 3 pick and, hopefully, something good comes of it. Who knows, maybe everything will suddenly click and he'll beast out.

His testing was to much off the chart to not get picked.

He looks slow, but covers a lot of ground because of his stride. Doesn’t take him many steps to get to the QB. We should be talking about him more. He’s going to be the hidden gem, not Powell, Gray or Trey. Mark it down.

Another 5 star recruit, who showed some flashes. I like this pick.

Maybe so. I'm a big production guy. I want to see a player do something on the field. Although, it seems like that entire FSU defense did jack and shit this year.

The Chiefs drafted the #1 and #5 recruits from 2017.
