    Crosby is the best, he did it over an entire career at Colorado and because of a sub par day, you all now think he suks? Way to knee jerk.

    Read my post above about him getting outshined at the Senior Bowl.

    One day huh? Re-check the math.

    I do. I don't want us to draft any of them. I just happen to think Nick Folk of Arizona is the best of the bunch. If we sign him as a UDFA it will be a good move. He's a weapon on kickoffs, FGs, and even Punting. If we can't re-sign McBriar he can fulfill all 3 duties. Name me one other Kicker who could do that?

    Note...I am sure we will re-sign McBriar and I won't be surprised if he turns out to be our kickoff guy as well as Punter in 2007.

    i thought he couldn't kick off because in OZ they don't use Tee's or is that the reason he can't do FG is because they use tees...everything is backwards in OZ

    Senior Bowl > Entire Career at CU?

    Sounds like fuzzy math hostile.

    Or knee-jerk math.

    You said one TV competition was all the evidence. It isn't. He was also out kicked at the Senior Bowl.

    One thing to remember about his "entire career at CU." He kicked at elevation in Colorado. The thinner air makes the ball travel farther.

    I take nothing away from him. Kid's a good kicker. I just don't think he's the best kicker available.

    He's supposedly going to work out to learn how to do that this off season.

    While the thought of actually drafting a kicker seems so wrong, I have to admit that picking a good one with a 6th or 7th round pick wouldn't exactly be stupid. We've got several late round picks and really, how often to 6th or 7th round picks at other positions pan out? It is certainly worth considering when you think about the problems we've had with kickers. A good, young, dependable kicker certainly would be a nice change.
