BIOGRAPHY: "Two-year starter awarded all-Conference and All-America honors since his junior campaign. Big East Defensive Player of the
Year last season after totals of 137/17.5/4 while also adding two interceptions and breaking up four passes. Junior totals
included a career-best 155 tackles, when he paced the entire country averaging 12.5 tackles per game."
POSITIVES: "Aggressive, run-defending linebacker who plays smart football. Instinctive, diagnoses the action as it unfolds, and plays
disciplined football. Breaks down well and uses his hands to protect himself. Chases hard to get involved in the action, and
consistently puts himself in a position to make plays on the ball. Aggressive, lays it on the line and plays hard for 60 minutes.
Fires up the gaps in run defense, and shows a good burst of straight-line speed."
NEGATIVES: Two-down defender and can be a liability in coverage situations. Possesses just average speed and quickness in his game. Lacks
top sideline-to-sideline range.
ANALYSIS: "McKillop comes off two outstanding seasons as one of the nation's top tacklers. He's a good football player, yet a marginal
athlete and a linebacker who may be limited to certain systems. He would be best on the inside of a 3-4 alignment or could
be used as a middle linebacker taken off the field on passing downs. While he lacks the great upside, McKillop also has limited
downside risk to his game."
