Strengths Weaknesses

He has a tendency to take false steps at times, but when he accurately reads the play, he stays controlled and attacks the ballcarrier, wrapping, driving and finishing with force.

IN OUR VIEW: Regardless if he's able to fill the shoes of Perryman at inside linebacker, Kirby will be a key starter for Miami in 2015 and a prospect with a chance to make money as a senior.

--Dane Brugler (8/25/15)

Player Overview

There is no question that Denzel Perryman and his leadership will be missed in Coral Gables. The bigger question is: does Miami have a player on the roster who can come close to matching his physical and emotional presence at middle linebacker? Kirby is the most lkely possibility after starting all 13 games at outside linebacker in 2014, recording 54 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and two interceptions.
