Bio: 
Two-year starter who tallied 42 tackles (three for loss), three interceptions and 11 pass breakups, which ranked third in the AAC, in 2016. Made seven starts as a junior with 32 tackles (four for loss), one forced fumble and one pass breakup. Combined for 25 tackles and two interceptions in his first two seasons at Central Florida.
Pos: 
Hard-working cornerback coming off a career campaign. Tough, displays a sense of timing and gives effort in all areas. Relatively instinctive, works well with safeties and displays solid cover skills. Mixes it up with receivers throughout the route and battles opponents to get a hand on the ball. Quickly moves up the field defending the run then squares into ball handlers. Plays heads-up football.
Neg: 
Possesses an average burst to the throw. Slow getting his head back around and really doesn’t do a good job positioning himself to break up deep passes. Long speed is a concern.
Analysis: 
Killings has limitations but gets the most from his ability and offers possibilities as a ninth defensive back and special teams player.
