Kirkpatrick is much to long legged and stiff hipped to play man cover and be left on island vs NFL WRs. Just IMO about Kirkpatrick and have seen himplay ever game the last three years.
Here are some others insight
Anyways Kirkpatrick is a big physical corver who will be best at play man zone in a cover 2 type system where he can play up and press but then release and not worry about him. IF he has to flip and run vs speed NFL WRs then he will get burnt.
Yes I have seen him play quite a bit and he is not a zone guy. You want to claim that fine but I have seen ample Bama games to know he is a man cover guy and did so last night as well, yes they will play zone but they will lock him in to man coverage as well.
