Senior Bowl Notes
Kirksey accepted an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl in Mobile.
The former Hawkeye followed up on a stellar season with a strong Senior Bowl performance. On Tuesday, he showed the desire and strength to stone a fullback in the hole on isolation. The sound of his collision in the hole was heard throughout the stadium.
On Wednesday, he flat-backed Toledo RB David Fluellen on pass rush 1-on-1. This man isn't scared to drop the hammer, that's for sure.
Kirksey was the North's squad second leading tackler with six during Saturday's game. He also finished with 1.5 TFL, tied with North Carolina's Kareem Martin for the team lead.
