Positive: Slightly undersized but elusive receiver who shows flashes ability. Extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame, exposes himself to the big hit, and comes away with the tough catch. Goes up in a crowd, displays solid focus, and consistently gives effort. Runs sharp routes, quickly getting into breaks and staying low on exit to come back to the ball.
Negative: Drops a lot of catchable passes. One-speed receiver who cannot stretch the field.
Analysis: Kirkendoll had a solid college career but drops some very catchable throws in the big moment. Somewhat effective running after the reception, he could make it as a fifth receiver if he improves his consistency."
2009 -- Played in 14 games and started 12.
Strengths: Tough, versatile WR who will line up both outside and in the slot. Natural receiver who plucks the ball with his hands before it can get into his body. Good leaper with fine body control. Can adjust to poorly thrown balls and make the great catch. Will go over the middle and take a shot. Nice run-after-catch skills.
Weaknesses: Lacks speed and burst. Won't run away from anyone deep, and may struggle to get off the jam at the line of scrimmage. Not big or tall.
Projection: Low round pick who has a chance to be a better pro than collegian. Not flashy, but effective. Reminds me of Steve Breaston."
