Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Built like a bookcase with a stout, sturdy frame and flashes some lateral quicks to sidestep-and-go when working off blocks. He plays with heavy, aggressive hands.

WEAKNESSES: Still learning how to use his big paws with inconsistent shed and rush moves. Kilgo tends to pop upright and needs to improve his pad level, relying on his ability to overpower rather than leverage or mechanics.

He doesn't have much range and needs to show more instincts on the field, but his anchor and raw strength has garnered mid-round projections from some scouts.

--Dane Brugler (7/24/14)

Player Overview

The linchpin of Maryland's 3-4 base defense, Kilgo has started 23 games over his career, lining up mostly as the starting nose tackle for the Terrapins. He has had moderate production (37 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks last season) from the zero and one technique spots, generating movement with his brute strength to bully blockers backards.
