          Miami Dolphins 2020 Player Profile: WR Kirk Merritt.......
Miami Dolphins 2020 Player Profile: WR Kirk Merritt.......
Date: July 24, 2020 01:40PM

Not many have heard of this kid. Similar to Preston Williams, Merritt’s past issues kept him from being selected in the 2020 Draft. The Dolphins took a chance on the 23-year-old reciever, as he was one of 10 undrafted free agents picked up by the team.From two high-major programs to NJCAA to low-major to undrafted, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kirk Merritt has endured many hardships en route to the NFL.

Next to RB Matt Bredia , If he makes this team , he will be the 2nd fastest player on the team if not the Top.

Off-field issues kept him from suiting up with the Aggies, leading to his move to East Mississippi, an NJCAA Division I school.

Despite what seemed to be an impressive showing at Arkansas State, Merritt was not invited to the NFL Draft Combine. However, he caught the eyes of scouts at his pro day.

4.02 in the 20-yard shuttle (1st among combine WRs)
45.5-inch vertical jump (1st among combine WRs)
23 bench press reps (1st among combine WRs)
4.33 in the 40-yard dash (2nd among combine WRs)
11’3” broad jump (3rd among combine WRs)


Apparently.....Kirk exposed himself during a tutoring session. He claims it was a bad case of "jock itch". eye rolling smiley

Yes he's a Miami Dolphin now. eye rolling smiley Apparently hes well worth the risk.....if not for this Jock itch they said he would have went low first / high second round in the draft. Hopefully this was a dumb isolated incident. I'm not one for making excuses but this kid lost several million in signing bonuses. Hes been given a second chance to make up ground and I'm (no pun intended) Pulling for him..........grinning smiley

GO MIAMI!!!

I just watched some video of him (not X rated!) lol.

He definitely looks like he has NFL talent. Very impressive. I'm pretty sure he'll behave himself, especially having a head coach who looks like he could beat the crap out of anyone on the team.

This is how you build a great team.

YES. But to make things harder for him(and all rookies).......This season No Preseason games to tune up and get used to the speed of an NFL game.In Preseason Rookies go against other rookies..... So He has to make a hell of a an impression in camp.

Last night 8/14/20 would have been our first preseason game. sad smiley

GO MIAMI!!!
