Heavy lever action 45-70 for kid toshoot ?

Could a larger bodied kid ( 13 ) handle the recoil of a 11 lb Marlin Lever action ? I've herd of 405 grainer going 1300 fps have pretty mild recoil, but is still going sharp at 8 or 9lbs, but will it 2-3 lbs heavier, I was guessing it would be greatly managed. I might also put on a Remington super cell recoil pad and a shoulder pad ( but the shoulder pad seems pretty extensive... ) to reduce recoil even more. Any idea of other reduced recoil loads ?
