Carolina Panthers to Take Closer Look at Miles Killebrew

The Carolina Panthers continue to take a close look at the safeties in this year NFL Draft and are expected to take a closer look at Southern Utah safety Miles Killebrew.

The safety position is one that the Panthers have shown a great deal of interest in as they have met or are expected to meet with two other safeties, Su'a Cravens and Jayron Kearse, prior to the NFL Draft.

Killebrew was highly productive during his time at the college level with over 100 tackles each of the past two seasons and was named to the second-team All-Big Sky in 2014 and first-team All-Big Sky last year. The hard-hitting safety had a strong performance at the NFL Combine and finished as a Top Performer in the Bench Press, Vertical Jump and Broad Jump.

The one thing that is clear is that the Panthers are looking for a big safety and Killebrew, 6'2" and 216 pounds, is similar to the other safeties the team has taken a closer look at. USC Trojans' Cravens is 6'2" and 224 pounds and Clemson's Kearse is 6'4" and 216 pounds.

Scout ranks Killebrew as the sixth best safety in the upcoming NFL Draft and is a player the Panthers may target in the middle rounds.
