Carolina Panthers select G Edmund Kugbila

Apr 27 2013 11:38 AM KillerKat Carolina Panthers
Kugbila was picked to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine, but this wasn’t likely the most fortuitous selection in his family’s history. Kugliba’s parents Cletus and Lucy, won a visa lottery that allowed their family to move to the United States from Ghana. Kugbila and his family moved to the U.S. in 2000 when he was 10 years old. His younger brother Romauld, an Archer grad, is a freshman on the West Georgia football team. Edmund began playing football in the seventh grade. His size and talent attracted schools such as Alabama, Georgia, Vanderbilt and Florida, but a low SAT score prevented him from academically qualifying for a Division I school.


However, Kugbila has made the most of his time at Valdosta State. After playing in all 10 games in 2009 as a reserve, Kugbila started 10 games at tackle in the following season, and recorded the second most knockdown blocks on the team. In 2011, Kugbila moved to guard and played in all 10 games with eight starts. He was named all-conference and third team All-American. Kugbila finished his college career by helping Valdosta claim the national championship in 2012.

does anyone have a single video of the the guy? youube searches havnt been too fruitful

19 teams at a pro day for one draftable player is pretty good indication he was on more teams' radars than the media ever picked up on. I'll say it again, this reminds me very much of a Patriots-type pick. They were probably shocked to find him gone before their late round picks came up, as they aren't used to teams valuing linemen like they do.

People tend to forget one of the reasons Brady has been so successful is because he typically operates behind one of the best lines in all of football.


The people that think this guy was going to be a UDFA are oblivious to the facts.

He is a good football player with imposing physical tools to exceed in the NFL
Not sure how to rate the website, but could give more information based on some actual video footage:

I LOVE that nickname.

I keep misreading his name as "Bugkila" due to my extreme insomnia, so now I'm going to have visions of a maniacal African exterminator driving a giant truck, obliterating any insects unfortunate enough to cross his path...

agreed to terms on his contract today, according to aaron wilson on twitter.

To anyone interested in his condensed tape that I did of his youtube footage and his semi-final and championship games (his last 2 as a college player) here you go:

thanks.

the whole process completely sucked, just wanted to get it out since he was a ghost to myself and everyone else

He had no problems with that level of competition and would have looked even better if the rest of that line wasn't a train wreck.  He was quick to the second level on run plays and never let the defender get to his body on pass plays.  Good footwork in the pocket as well.

if he starts this year and makes an impact gettle is a genius

KUGZILLA!!!!!


Kugzilla the African Assassin.

Two quick plays made an impression on me. One, he rode a LB from the right hash all the way out of the left sideline. And two, he took a poor safety all the way out of the picture.

I like that he can stay on those littler guys so long. Man I hope he can push Hangman back to depth.
