Scouting Report (via NFL.com)

STRENGTHS

Flashes strength in upper body when he gets arm extension. Rarely gets moved off of his spot in one-on- one matchups. Recovered three fumbles in 2014 and blocked a kick. When his pad level is right, he can leverage blocker and win the gap. Three-year starter.

WEAKNESSES

Is a complete non-factor as a pass rusher. Must improve hand work at the point of attack. If he doesn't win quickly, he rarely works his way into a winning position against his blocker. Lacks quickness out of his stance. Below-average strength from lower half and plays with poor balance. Gets corkscrewed and flattened by double teams. Very limited play radius. Too often fails to find ball carrier in time.

Analysis

The Broncos finally address the DT position with a true NT prospect out of Maryland. Kilgo is the right size and will need to be coached up to harness his natural ability. The biggest positive about this player is that he was a three-year starter at the nose position.
