Luther Kirk

Safety – Illinois State

Kirk was a relative unknown at safety for most people entering this season. After taking 2017 off for personal reasons, and having an okay 2018 season he was not really on the radar for many teams in 2019. However, his leadership was known and his play in 2019 turned some heads.

Kirk is a reactive safety on the back-end of the defense. He breaks well on the ball and reads the quarterbacks eyes well. He stood out at the Shrine Bowl and won the MVP for the West (he is number 34 in the picture above). He doesn’t have elite speed or agility, but is very smart and has good range despite not being the most athletic. He plays the position well and with a high IQ.

Kirk is a developmental safety as he needs to work on his man coverage skills and coming downhill avoiding blocks at times. He blitzes well and finishes tackles so the tools are there, he just needs some refinement. He should be able to find a spot at the end of the roster or practice squad and could be a sleeper long term.

Terence Steele

Offensive Tackle – Texas Tech

Terence Steele played tackle and guard at Texas Tech and is probably best suited for right tackle in the NFL. He was a consistent starter for the Red Raiders and a team captain. He has really long arms that he uses to hit with a solid initial punch.

Steele has really powerful arms and displays good IQ in understanding twists and stunts. His initial punch is strong and he does a good job directing rushers with the punch and strong arms. He doesn’t take overly large steps so he keeps his base underneath him as he hit the pass rusher. He does a good job squaring up to his blocks when he recognizes them.

Steele needs to add functional strength to the lower half of his body and build his flexibility to his game. Sometimes he is rigid and has to turn his entire body after he pushes a player to the outside. He doesn’t bend well and will need to work on his slide step to get more use out of his arms. Could develop into a swing tackle with the possibility of being a right tackle one day.
