BIO: Posted just 82/351/1 on the ground during an injury-riddled senior campaign. Started nine games as a junior and totaled 154/560/6.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized ball carrier best between tackles. Displays vision, waits for blocks to develop and runs with a powerful style. Easily breaks tackles yet makes defenders miss or can sidestep piles in a small area. Gives effort blocking in pass protection. Adequate receiver out of the backfield.
NEGATIVES: Not a quick-footed runner who creates when nothing is available. Does not block with the same strength he shows running the ball.
ANALYSIS: Possessing the size/speed numbers to be a fourth back in the NFL, Kirkley must quickly regain prior from in summer camp to have any shot at making a practice squad.
