Keim and the Cardinals have been commended for their successful draft classes, especially in recent years. Pro Bowlers Patrick Peterson, Larry Fitzgerald, Darnell Dockett, Adrian Wilson and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie were acquired through the draft and of the 42 players drafted since 2007, 29 remain with the team going into training camp with 18 of those starting at least one game with the Cardinals.

A two-time all-Atlantic Coast Conference selection as a guard at N.C. State, Keim started 36 consecutive games at left guard for the Wolfpack. He was named the offensive freshman of the year in 1991 and was the ACC Player of the Week following the team’s victory over Maryland in November, 1994. During a standout senior season where he was also a captain, Keim was named the N.C. State offensive line MVP and won the Jim Ritcher Award for the highest graded offensive lineman in addition to being named third team All-American from Gameplan magazine.

Keim had a brief stint in pro football as a free agent with the Miami Dolphins (1996) and Edmonton Eskimos (1997) of the Canadian Football League before returning to coach at N.C. State.

He served as assistant strength and conditioning coach at his alma mater for two years, assisted the recruiting coordinator with evaluations, and served as a liaison to NFL personnel wishing to scout Wolfpack football players. In the fall of 2004, Keim was inducted into the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame.

Keim resides in Chandler, AZ with his wife, Kimberly, sons Carson and Brady, and daughter Sloane.
