NFL Backup or Special Teams Potential
How We Grade
Seibert (SIGH-bert) was rated as the top high school kicker in the country by some recruiting services and as the top-rated high school punter by others. He's succeeded at both at Oklahoma, garnering first-team All-Big 12 accolades as a kicker (17-19 on field goals, long 42; 87-88 extra points) and honorable mention nod at punter (40.9 avg., 11 fair catches, nine inside the 20 yard-line on 31 punts). Seibert was a second-team All-Big 12 pick as a kicker in 2017 (17-21-81.0 FG, long 51, 81-81 XP), as well as a honorable mention punter (42.3 avg., 15 fair catches, 11 inside the 20). He handled kickoff duties in 2017 (84 touchbacks on 111 kicks) and 2018 (91 of 109), which he started as a sophomore (49-99) while also acting as the placement kicker (11-16-68.8, long 39, 72-74 XP) and punter (41.1 avg., 29 fair catches, 22 inside the 20). He was better known for his punting in his true freshman season, being named second-team All-Big 12 and a Ray Guy semifinalist (42.0 avg., 30 fair catches, 23 inside the 20 vs. two touchbacks). He also converted 18 of 23 field goal attempts (long 56) and 70 of 72 extra points in his initial campaign with the Sooners.

OverviewSeibert's ability to offer value in three kicking departments will certainly factor into how teams view him, but he's not a fulltime punter and he lacks the consistency and 50-plus totals that teams expect from draftable kickers.
- Handled field goals, kickoffs, and punts at Oklahoma
- Produced touchback rate of 83 percent
- Kicked in meaningful stress-filled, postseason contests
- Some misses can be attributed to bad snaps
- Hasty in his operation time as kicker
- Adequate hang time as emergency punter
- Made just 4 of 9 field goal tries from between 40-49 over the last three years
- Rarely attempted kicks of 50-plus yards, making just 1 of 3 for his career
- Fails to stand out as either kicker or punter.
