BIOGRAPHY: "Junior-college transfer who moved into the starting lineup as a senior and totaled 34/3/8.5. Posted 12 tackles as a junior,
when he played in twelve games."
POSITIVES: "Fairly athletic defensive lineman with possibilities in a number of systems. Moves well on his feet, fluid if asked to twist
or stunt, and works his hands throughout the action. Plays with good lean, keeps his pads low to the ground, and fights to
make plays. Displays good first step quickness and beats opponents off the snap."
NEGATIVES: "Handled at the point by a single blocker, and struggles to get penetration when he does not beat opponents with his initial
move. Displays marginal lateral speed and ability in pursuit."
ANALYSIS: "Irvin's game really took off last season, and he showed a lot of progress as a senior. He possesses solid size, athleticism,
and can be used as a conventional defensive tackle or perhaps a two-gap end. Irvin needs time to develop his game, yet the
arrow is pointing north for him."
