Overview

Kilgore is a developmental guard prospect who still needs a lot of work with his technique but has upside. Possesses the fierce mentality that coaches covet and flashes some impressive hand and lower-body power. However, has a tendency to play too high, leans and lunges, and stops moving feet after contact. Also lacks the athleticism to stick with polished interior pass rushers who bring some speed, power and counter moves to the table. Recognition skills and overall awareness need to be coached up. Kilgore's flaws appear to be correctable, and he could hear his named called on Day 3.


Strengths

Kilgore can hold up against the bull rush. Uses violent hands to jar pass rushers. Wall-off run blocker who gets out of his stance quickly and gains initial position. Gets movement off the ball at times. Flashes explosive power at the second level. Excellent competitor and plays with a fiery disposition.

Weaknesses

Lacks some size for the next level. Vulnerable against pass rushers with a wide array of moves or elite quickness. Really needs to watch his pad level and doesn't keep his legs driving after making initial contact. Limited getting out and blocking in space. Blitz awareness is below average.

Grade

2.0
