Miles Killebrew: Ss, Southern Utah


Recommended Posts


For those interested,,, view the link. This was all I could find on him or the team in video; nothing in the video is current 2015 season.

I'm betting he is much better known after the Senior Bowl week is over.

A recent scout comment I found:

The scoop: "He's a better football player than Shaq Thompson and Deone Bucannon were when they came out." -- Area scout on Southern Utah safety Miles Killebrew

The skinny: That is high praise -- Thompson and Bucannon both were first-round picks. However, we're not surprised to hear such talk about Killebrew, who has accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl. He jumps off the tape and has a chance to be a name you'll hear a lot leading up to the draft. Killebrew has good size at a little under 6-2 and 230 pounds. He's been clocked at 4.45 in the 40. Everything we hear is that his character is impeccable.

I was thinking about him as a replacement for Moore, but then again you don't want a rookie and a 2nd year FS (Allen) back there together. I still would rather have a vet with Allen. My preference is still Rafael Bush. He can play strong and free. Put him at SS and keep Allen at FS. I know I said he may not be the answer at FS, but looks like he's getting better with the playing time back there.

We have a simple scheme. Play fast and physical. Bush is a vet just like Wheeler is. If he has come in in the short time and balled out,I don't see why Bush can't with a whole offseason.

What I mean is under Nolan the safeties were pretty much interchangeable, but under Quinn the SS plays more of a 'rover' role and spends over 50% of the time in the box. The free safety is responsible for covering the deep middle so needs incredible range.

He may be able to play both FS and SS in the Saints system but I doubt it in ours.
