Scouting Report

OVERVIEW

A five-star recruit, Kirk chose the Aggies over UCLA so he could play in the SEC, and he delivered as a true freshman with 80 catches for 1,009 yards and seven scores.

Primarily a slot receiver, he remained productive through his final two seasons despite inconsistent quarterback play in 2017, finishing with 234 career catches for 2,856 yards and 26 TDs in 39 games (36 starts).

He also thrived as a returner, scoring on six of 38 career punt returns and adding another score via kick return. He earned first-team All-SEC honors as a wideout and returner in 2016 and 2017.

ANALYSIS

Though short (5-10 3/8), Kirk is well built (201 pounds) and muscular, and he moves with excellent stop-and-start suddenness. He bursts in and out of breaks with great control and is dangerous before and after the catch. His elusiveness pops on punt returns, where he is a demon in the open field. Coaches laud his maturity and professional approach, suggesting a smooth NFL transition.

Kirk is not an elite prospect because he might be limited to the slot. He's certainly not slow, but he's quicker than fast with a limited catch radius, so he rarely threatens defenses vertically. While he shows strong, natural hands, he was inconsistent in traffic and also must improve his ball security (eight career fumbles).

Kirk should contribute from Day 1 as a slot receiver and returner and should be a steady, if not game-breaking, pro.
