Biography: Two-year starter who finished with 32 receptions for 285 yards as a senior after junior totals of 56/599/1.
Positives: Athletic receiver who's been plagued with a streaky game. Comes across the middle of the field, settles into the open spot of the defense and works to make himself an available target. Extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame. Lays out for the difficult reception and looks the ball into his hands. Gives effort blocking.
Negatives: Does not show a second gear or consistently play to his 40 time. Does not possess naturally soft hands.
Analysis: After showing a lot of skill as a junior Kirkland struggled to improve last year. He possesses enough physical skill to make a roster as a fifth receiver yet needs to polish off every area of his game.
