Texas A&M Aggies’ WR Christian Kirk Headed To NFL Draft

Last Updated: 2018-01-03

There are a whole lot of changes going on with the Texas A&M Aggies football program. Former head coach Kevin Sumlin is out after five seasons. Future head coach Jimbo Fisher is getting started in building the program. He has two quarterbacks that should compete for the starting job, but he won’t have wide receiver Christian Kirk in his senior season.

Kirk announced his decision for forego one final season in the SEC. He is ready to take advantage of his rising 2018 NFL Draft stock in the spring. When Kirk first burst onto the season with the Aggies, he displayed his show stopping ability immediately by scoring two touchdowns against the Arizona State Sun Devils. The first touchdown was a 79 yard punt return. He later scored a 66 yard touchdown reception to get off to a rousing debut.

From there, Kirk was dazzling defenses each week. He finished his freshman season with 80 receptions for 1,009 yards and 9 total touchdowns. Unfortunately, that was Kirk’s only 1,000 yard season with the Aggies. Over the last two seasons, Kirk continued to display his deep threat ability with 928 and 919 yards respectively. Kirk also raised his touchdown receptions in each season with nine in 2016 and 10 in 2017. In all, Kirk finished his three year career with 234 receptions for 2,856 yards and 26 touchdowns. He added six special teams touchdowns.

Kirk can play in all phases of the game at the next level. He has the potential to be a 100-reception guy in the NFL. Kirk also has the ability to play some running back in the mold of Christian McCaffrey and Tyreek Hill. However, unlike those two recent draft selections, Kirk will come to the NFL as a fulltime wide receiver. He only earned 23 rushing attempts in three seasons with the Aggies.

Right now, Kirk is considered to the No. 2 wide receiver prospect in the draft. There are plenty of teams that can use an offensive weapon like Kirk next season. If he drops down to the No. 9 or 10 selection, Kirk could be selected by the San Francisco 49ers. Conveniently, that would be a perfect landing spot for the dynamic wide receiver
