    Strong Points: Makes plays all over the field -- 176 total tackles in 2018. Very instinctive. Lacks size but tough at the point of attack. Strong hand use to shed and the quickness to easily elude blocks. Very intelligent player who has superb intangibles. Strong in coverage -- quick drop, gets proper depth and has very good receiver awareness. Very good ball reactions and ball skills. Sure tackler.

    Weak Points: Short with short arms. Unlikely to get much bigger than 230 pounds. Adequate speed (not a burner).

    The Way We See It: Burr-Kirven is a fun player to watch on film, where his aggression, instincts and competitiveness jump out. He gets the job done inside and outside. Although BBK is short with limited reach, his sound technique allows him to disengage. He is excellent in pursuit, taking good angles consistently hustling to the ball. He is equally proficient in coverage, where he gets correct depth and plays with headiness. Though Burr-Kirven might lack ideal physical traits, coaches are going to love him. He must get a little bigger, and will have to be in the right scheme, but BBK will play in the NFL, where his floor should be as an excellent performer on special teams.
