Jake Kirkpatrick, 2011 Undrafted Free Agent, Center

Kirkpatrick, Jake TCU 6017 301 5.32>Two-year starter. Plays in a spread offense where he shotgun
snaps and does conventional center play. An intense wall off
blocker who gets high and up on his toes at times. Rarely on the
ground. Good angles to the second level cutoffs. Shorter arms
than ideal. Good lateral quickness to pull. Cut on a defensive
lineman. Gave Phil Taylor (Baylor) all he could handle early in
the season. A zone blocking type center who takes the proper
steps and runs a defender on contact. Can push the down lineman
and create a seam. Offense is a series of quick passes so he
doesn’t hold a block very long. Works to finish his blocks on
the second level linebackers. Plays low and with leverage in the
run game.For complete report see Ourlads Guide To The NFL Draft
