BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his sophomore season as well as being named to a number of All-America teams.

POSITIVES: Kirby has been a productive and durable college lineman, but he is a limited athlete with minimal upside for the next level. The versatility to be used at several positions could help him find a place on an NFL roster.

NEGATIVES: Played left tackle in college but struggles sliding out to protect the edge, and lacks lateral blocking range. Stiff and has difficulty adjusting to defenders.

ANALYSIS: Quick, position blocker who works hard. Immediately gets into blocks, makes good use of angles, and seals defenders from the play. Stays square, effectively fights with his hands, and quickly picks up blocking assignments.

PROJECTION: FA
