Analysis

Strengths

Three-year starter in the SEC. Converted multiple game-winning field goals and has shown he can handle pressure. Efficient squib kicker. Works at his craft and takes the game seriously.

Weaknesses

Average rise and hang-time on kickoffs -- lines the ball with limited lift. Long-range distance is shaky and struggles converting beyond 50. Non-factor in coverage.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Three-by-two, soccer-style kicker with enough leg strength to warrant a chance in a camp, though he must prove he can more consistently handle kicking accurately from greater depths to earn a job.
