Overview

Thrust into the starting lineup after a knee injury ended teammate Jeff Owens' 2008 season, Irvin posted 34 tackles, including 8.5 tackles for loss, in a breakout senior season. The junior college transfer from Georgia Military College parlayed his first season as a starter into an invitation to the Senior Bowl, where he showed enough improvement over the course of the week to register as a second-day developmental prospect.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Long arms with a square build and room for additional growth. ... At least adequate initial quickness off the snap. ... At least adequate lateral quickness to generate some pass rush from the interior. ... Learning to utilize his long arms to keep blockers off his body. ... Locates the ball and plays with good hustle in pursuit. ... Good lower leg drive to anchor against the run. ... Gets his arms up to provide obstacles in the passing lanes. ... Improved throughout the week of practice at the Senior Bowl. Negatives: Raw and lacks the eye-popping athleticism to indicate high upside. ... Not quick enough off the snap or when moving laterally to generate much of a pass rush. ... Only short-area quickness. ... Needs an open lane to close. ... Adequate size and strength to hold up against the run, but struggles to disengage.
