NFL Prospects: Kickers!

To those of us who forgot what it was like to see our team make a big kick, this is how kickers celebrate. (Photo by Tom Pennington/Getty Images)

Ole’ Preppie Jack asked for it and he’ll get it! A kicker profile! Somewhere in the DMV area Ken just got aroused.

Do we need a kicker? I think so. Graham Gano was an empathic Charles Barkley TURRIBLE this past year going 24 for 35 and missing A LOT of very important field goals. I can’t go over the pros and cons of a particular kicker (they either make or miss it, right?), so let’s just take a snap shot of the Top 3 in this year’s NFL Draft.

Alex Henery, Nebraska: Henery is a bit of a legend in Nebraska, the Omaha legend stayed home to become the all-time leading scorer in Cornhuskers history. He sat an NCAA record for career accuracy hitting 87.8 of his attempts (68-76). Henery also handled the punting duties averaging 43.2 yards per punt and landing 26 within the 20 in 2010.

Projected Round: 5th

Kai Forbath, UCLA:  Finished as the second leading scorer in school history and hit 84% of his field goals over his time at UCLA.  At one point he made 40 consecutive FGs from within 40 yards. Most importantly he’s got a big leg and won the Lou Groza award for the nation’s best kicker in 2009.

Projected Round: 6th

Josh Jasper, LSU:  Jasper led the nation with 28 field goals this year and was a consensus All-American.  Those 28 field goals set a LSU single season record. Was 28-34 this year and also handles the kickoff and pooch kicking duties.

Projected Round: 7th
