Christian Kirk, who as a wide receiver, is one of the most talented players in college football right now. Well, it’s looking as though he is ready to move onto the next level.
A junior at Texas A&M, Kirk made the announcement on Tuesday that he will be applying for the 2018 NFL draft early.
Christian Kirk get’s down to the nitty gritty while on the field.
He has a tremendous run-after-catch ability and will be a great asset to any team that picks him up. However, there was a dip in his numbers this season. Texas A&M has been struggling to keep up with the rest of the SEC when it comes to accurate passes. More so, with their freshman players. Even so, Kirk was able to rack 919 receiving years and was able to bring in a total of 10 touchdowns.
For the Aggies, Kirk was able to “do work” while on special teams. He was given the title All-SEC First Team All-Purpose. He is also the first-team specialist. As the wide receiver, he was able to take home the All-SEC Second Team honors.
Coming into 2017, there were already scouts and pundits checking for the young football all-star. During the first two seasons with the Aggies, he was able to tally 16 touchdowns and 1,937 yards. Bucky Brooks, an analyst for NFL.com could only describe Kirk as a route runner who is capable of winning with his speed.
On Dec. 29, it was Christian Kirks last game with Texas A&M. They lost to Wake Forest while playing the Belk Bowl. With 13 receptions, 189 yards, and touchdowns, Kirk was the lead receiver.
The next time we see him play will hopefully be while in the NFL. Hopefully, there is a team looking for a hardworking wide receiver who is a threat to anyone who comes his way.
