Pos: 
Explosive skill player who can score whenever the ball is in his hands. Displays tremendous quickness, runs scissor-sharp routes and constantly finds ways to separate from defenders. Extends his hands to offer the quarterback a target, adjusts to errant throws and snatches the ball away from his frame. Tracks the deep ball in the air, makes receptions in stride and displays elusiveness and strength after the catch. Shows terrific burst and the ability to run away from defenders.
Neg: 
Average height. Lacks a true second gear and deep speed. More quick than fast. Struggles in battles.
Analysis: 
Kirk is an explosive athlete with tremendous quickness and the ability to impact games as a receiver or a return specialist. He plays faster than his 40 time but does not have the computer numbers to be a No. 1 at the next level. Kirk should be productive as a slot receiver and return specialist and has the ability to make an impact as a rookie.
