Senior 6’1″ 219
- 4 Year starter at Southern Utah
- LB/SS hybrid in the NFL
- All Big Sky first team 2015
- Hits like a LB and will often blow up a receiver over the middle.
- Better player near the line of scrimmage than in coverage, but holds up well when asked to drop.
- Does a good job wrapping up when tackling and isn’t just a hitter.
- Has tested fast but it really doesn’t show in his play.
- Was a vital part of the special teams unit and blocked two kicks.
- Defensive leader for Southern Utah.
- Can track TE and RB in coverage but haven’t seen him face an elite TE to test him.
- I wouldn’t trust him one on one against a WR, tight hips and doesn’t show that speed enough.
Killebrew was a star at Southern Utah and has been at least an honourable mention in the All Big Sky teams throughout his career. Teams will fall in love with his hard hitting mentality and he will more than likely end up playing some form of hybrid LB/S at the next level, similar to how a lot of larger S are now being played.
His coverage skills aren’t the best and I think he will struggle in man coverage against the better TE and RB in the league. He is very capable of dropping back in zone and has an eye for the ball intercepting or defending the pass.
Killebrew played a lot of special teams at Southern Utah and caused a few fumbles and blocked two field goals, this will help his draft stock a bunch as he will first be asked to contribute on ST before he gets the chance to start.
Killebrew has been invited to the combine and if he shows well especially in the 40 he could start edging his way up draft boards.
