Adrian Killins had spectators drooling at his agility, speed and pass catching ability. He will likely take a place on a NFL roster as a special teams player or a pass catching back. Killins is not an every down back but he creates mismatches for bigger defenders attempting to cover him in space. He is the kind of back that if you don’t have much time to throw from the pocket and need a check down option Killins is your guy he will turn a 2 yard catch into a 20 yard gain.
I had the opportunity to watch and interact with Killins personally and he is as fast as they come. Josh Morgan even gave him a shout out that saying “playing QB is easy when you could throw a 1 yard check down and Killins turns it into a 40 yard gain”. Killins is the kind of running back I can imagine pairing up with Tom Brady because in the past Brady has a tendency to throw a ton of check downs to his small running backs for what I would like to call a “extended handoff”.
