Overview

Teggart is a soccer-style kicker who has decent leg strength but struggles with his consistency. The NFL's rule change, moving kickoffs up, will hurt Teggart's pro prospects -- kickers are relied upon to kick touchbacks more than 50 percent of the time, and it's unlikely Teggart will ever be in that range. He is a decent-sized athlete, but he does nothing well enough to warrant being drafted; he's a free-agent prospect who could get selected late by a team desperate for someone to compete for the position.

Analysis

Strengths

Teggart rarely misses from 20 to 40 yards out. He has handled pressure fairly well and made some game-winners. His kicks start on a low line before rising, which could provide a problem in the NFL, but Teggart has a consistent approach that likely will afford him the opportunity to refine his technique. He is a decent athlete who can run down returners.

Weaknesses

Teggart has an unusual problem of missing from 40-49 yards but actually being fairly consistent from beyond 50. Unfortunately for him, his problem range is crucial in the NFL. He is good under pressure and has the same approach each time, but that technique leads to a ball that rises slowly and could be blocked.

Grade Title Draft (Round) Description
96-100 Future Hall of Famer Top Pick A once-in-a-generation type prospect who could change how his position is played
85-95 Immediate Starter 1st An impact player with the ability/intangibles to become a Pro Bowl player. Expect to start immediately except in a unique situation (i.e. behind a veteran starter).
70-84 Eventual Starter 2nd-3rd A quality player who will contribute to the team early on and is expected to develop into a starter. A reliable player who brings value to the position.
50-69 Draftable Player 4th-7th A prospect with the ability to make team as a backup/role player. Needs to be a special teams contributor at applicable positions. Players in the high range of this category might have long-term potential.
20-49 Free Agent UDFA A player with solid measurables, intangibles, college achievements, or a developing skill that warrants an opportunity in an NFL camp. In the right situation, he could earn a place on a 53-man roster, but most likely will be a practice squad player or a camp body.
