Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about KINDLE VILDOR: Georgia Southern, 5097 191 4.50. Two-year starter, College Park, GA. First-team All-Sun Belt in 2019. Plays off and press man along with Cover 2 and 3. Smooth controlled pedal in off coverage with quick feet to mirror receiver up the field. Will press and bail to a lateral run with ability to change speeds to maintain spacing. As a zone defender normally reads routes and the quarterback. Usually doesn’t get attracted to shallow routes and sticks the deep outside in Cover 3. Finds work in between zones. Has speed to stay on top in deep coverage. Solid reactions on throw working hands to the catch point. As a hard corner can work under the intermediate route and break quickly on the flat throw. Physical in press with two and off hand jam at the turn. Smooth turn and run. Can make a play on a screen but inconsistent in run support at times lunging and missing a tackle in space. Will whiff at the line in press and play from behind. A step late with recovery speed at times. Some inconsistency processing route combinations in zone as there have been some blown coverage. He can get attracted to one route at times. Has tools and timed speed is better than expected. With some development he may find a home with a zone team. Special teams play will need to be solid. Senior Bowl notes: Displayed quick reactions mirroring cuts and reacting to the ball. Showed ball skills with timed hands to the catch point which netted an interception. Aggressive with receivers with some borderline holding. Quick break on the throw and solid tackling in space. 2019 stats: 27 T, 3 TFL, 6 PBU, 2 INT. OSR:16/29. Fifth/sixth round. (A-32 1/4, H-9 5/8, VJ-39.5, SS-4.28).
