Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors the past two seasons. Senior totals included 62/15.5/6.5 after 74/19.5/10.5 as a junior.

Positives: Small yet hard-working defender who makes plays sideline to sideline. Fires off the snap with a quick first step, built low to the ground and naturally gets leverage on opponents. Breaks down well, effectively slides down the line, and plays heads-up football. Fast in every direction of the field, quickly changes direction, and relentless in his pursuit of the action. Effectively diagnoses plays, possesses a burst of straight-line speed and is a solid athlete. Plays with good balance, stays with the action and rarely off his feet. Plays heads-up football, does not bite on play-action passes and stays with assignments.

Negatives: Has size limitations and easily out positioned by opponents or engulfed at the point of attack. Very average speed.

Analysis: Kirlew has been tremendously productive on the college level and is a competitive player who never gives up. He possesses poor size/speed numbers yet his hustle and approach to the game will help him find a home on a roster, potentially as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment. Brings a special teams mentality.

Projection: 6th

The special teams angle gives him extra value. You hope you can at least get ST help from a late rounder.

Maybe the wedgebuster on SP is his future.

Bingo! With Reid coming off the knee injury this guy will be depth and used just like we used Reid. Not a starter, but a situational pass rusher and special teams guy.

I like this pick better than the small safety we took earlier. He's a tough, good character guy that matches our usual profile we go for. Very good seventh round pick.

This guy shows flashes a good first step and great closing speed on the video below. I think he'll translate well at OLB. Pleasantly surprised.

Why would you need a wedgebuster when the wedge was taken out of the game last season?

Its all good and well but I wish there was some way we could watch the whole tape as fans. Highlight reels are great but I want to see how bad he is where he has negatives.

Just want to get the whole picture.

I want to see his negative highlights. They tell more than 2 minutes of cherry picked highlights. I have to admit though he looks pretty well in that video though.

I know Jammie Kirlew pretty well, being an IU guy. IU has more than a few solid NFL role player types and one absolute stud OT in this draft. Kirlew and Middleton are going to be very solid role players at DE/OLB in the NFL.

Kirlew is a try hard, effort DE in college. He has some pass rush skills, and he can anchor and set the edge better than most undersized college DE's. This is another solid football character, Physical, intelligent player with versatility. He is not the most athletic guy, but he plays with leverage and is technically very solid. Great seventh round pick IMHO....

Any chance he could be starter week 1?

Sure, If all the other guys are hurt ;D

Seriously though, Kirlew is a great kid to develop in a rotation at the 3-4 OLB in DEN's system. I could see him being on the 53 and occasionally dressing and playing if their were injuries or for ST's right away.

If he does this to Philip Rivers once in his career he'll have been worth the pick.

NFP likes Jammie: http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/Day-three-draftees-worth-watching.html

"I was high on Kirlew during the season, but he started to lose a lot of his buzz after his combine performance because he lacked ideal size and ran in the high 4.9 range. However, he’s a natural pass rusher who has the body control, balance and suddenness to consistently slip blocks off the edge. He lacks a great first step but does a nice job using his hands and plays with consistent leverage on contact. The Broncos (http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/Denver-Broncos-8093.html) already have some talent on their roster in the form of starting 3-4 outside linebackers, but there isn’t much depth behind them. That’s where I think Kirlew could make his mark as a rotational guy.I was high on Kirlew during the season, but he started to lose a lot of his buzz after his combine performance because he lacked ideal size and ran in the high 4.9 range.

He's a good fundamental player. He form tackles and looks like he knows what the heck is going on on the field...where to be, etc.

Going from a 4-3 DE to a 3-4 ILB you could. Depends on the guy and who is around him.

I'm trying to find a listing of the positions that he played. So far I found confirmation that he played "outside linebacker", "weak side linebacker" and "linebacker" in the same article, which would imply that he played both inside and outside.

I would characterize his player profile as:

versatility, intelligence, high motivation, high effort

...that's good stuff.

Look at the core of the team. Dawkins, Royal, DJ Williams, Champ, Clady, Harris, Moreno. Then you add in the rooks Tebow, Thomas, Beadles, and the Baylor kid...the foundation of this team is evident. I like whats being built here.

We'll see if McD's vision of character over talent brings fruit, but I have to admit its much more fun to watch that kind of team play mediocre football than it is to watch a bunch of whiny, underperforming great athletes play mediocre football. I would expect that the mid-to-late season swoon may finally end.

Well, you have to include intellegence and passion for the game.
