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.
