Texas A&M’s Christian Kirk at the NFL Combine on Saturday did 20 reps on the bench press, one of the best showings by the wide receivers. West Virginia’s Ka’Raun White did 24, Memphis’ Anthony Miller 22 and Missouri’s J’Mon Moore 21.

Kirk’s 40-yard time was 4.47 seconds. The top time by a receiver was LSU’s D.J. Chark at 4.34. Some of the other times were South Florida’s Marquez  Valdes-Scantling 4.37, Florida’s Antonio Callaway 4.41, Alabama’s Robert Foster 4.41, Clemson’s Deon Cain 4.43, Pitt’s Jester Weah, Texas Tech’s Keke Coutee 4.43 and Kansas State’s Byron Pringle 4.46.

The NFL.com’s Mike Mayock said Kirk’s times (4.46 and 4.48) were real solid. The draft analyst compared Kirk to former Packers’ Greg Jennings, saying they're both "tough" wideouts with "outstanding hands" who run good routes.

Kirk was measured at 5-foot-10, 201 pounds. Kirk’s hands were measured at 9 7/8.  Other receivers with big hands were Utah’s Darren Carrington 10 3/8, SMU’s Trey Quinn 10 1/8, Miller 10, New Mexico State’s Jaleel Scott 10, Valdez-Scantling 10.

Kirk’s vertical jump was 35-5, his broad jump 9-7, and his 3-cone time 7.09, none good enough to rank him in the Top 10 marks among receivers, but it appears Kirk had a solid showing in Indianapolis.
