BIO: Moved into the starting lineup as a senior and was awarded All-Conference honors. Totaled 19/220/1 catching the ball.
POSITIVES: Hard-working lead blocker with solid hands. Has terrific blocking vision, gets a pad on defenders and disrupts their angle of attack. Solid position blocker who walls defenders from the action. Aggressive, stays with assignments and works to finish. Reliable receiver who adjusts to the errant throw and makes the difficult reception.
NEGATIVES: Not explosive off the snap, lacks speed around the corner and does not finish blocks.
ANALYSIS: After moving into the starting spot, Kirtman did a solid job for one of the nation's most explosive offenses. May never be a dominant lead blocker yet does enough things well enough to be a No. 2 player at his position.
