Draft 2009

Pick Analysis: Moved up NFL draft boards with a surprising first season as the Seminoles' kicker in 2008. Gano won the Lou Groza Award and garnered first-team all-ACC honors after making 24-of-26 field goal attempts -- including 5-of-7 of 50 yards or longer. Gano actually missed the first two games of his senior season after having surgery in August on a torn right meniscus. He ended the season as the team's triple-threat specialist, re-gaining punting and kickoff duties as the season progressed. Honorable mention all-ACC as a punter in 2007 with a 43.4-yard average overall; he averaged 42.7 yards a boot and placed the ball well after returning from injury. Gano finished a dream season by winning the Champs Sports Bowl MVP award after pinning Wisconsin deep multiple times. Had an arm span of 30 3/8 inches and a hand span of 7 7/8 inches at the combine.
