Draft 2019

Pick No.142

Selected By: Seattle Seahawks

Round: 5

Pick (Overall): 4 (142)

Pick Analysis: Burr-Kirven was the All-Northern California Defensive Player of the Year and Mr. Football finalist for Menlo Park (Calif.) Sacred Heart Prep High School as a senior despite missing time early in the season to an Achilles injury suffered in track (where he was the anchor on a school record-setting 4x100 relay). He was a strong contributor on Washington's deep linebacker corps in 2015 (34 tackles, one for loss in 12 games) and 2016 (44 stops, one for loss, one INT in 14 games), though he never started a game either year. Burr-Kirven played with the ones in 2017, garnering second-team All-Pac-12 honors with a team-high 84 tackles in 13 games (eight starts). He also had four tackles for loss, an interception, five pass breakups and two forced fumbles on the season. He earned first-team Associated Press All-American and the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year Award after leading the country with 176 total tackles (ranking third with 94 solos) and also posting 5.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, two interceptions, six pass breakups, three fumble recoveries and four forced fumbles.
