    They've shown him do it on ESPN. I've seen him kick a 70 yard field goal with my own eyes. The problem is that he can't do it in a real game because he kicks a line drive that would get blocked 9 times out of 10. Regardless, having a sure thing at the kicker position is worth a late 2nd round pick to me.

    I would take that Rutgers kicker in a later round, that guy is money.

    He kicks in Colorado. Can you say elevation helps the distance?

    Not saying he isn't a good kicker. He is. So was Mike Nugent. Has he been worth a 2nd round pick?

    Janikowski was good. Has he been worth a 2nd? Much less a 1st.

    Kicking well in college doesn't mean you will in the pros.

    He's missed 9 FGs this year folks.

    See for yourselves.

    He's only missed 2 under 50 yards, though. I have no idea how long the 50+ kicks were but I'm sure some of them were coaches just thinking, "Heck, let's see if he can kick this 65 yard FG." Obviously, he never be asked to do that in the NFL.

    yes he plays at colorado but is from Texas and has kicked 70 yarders during the summer while at home so its not just the air.

    Also, 1 of his 2 missed FGs within 50 yards was blocked.

    Only missing 2 under 50 is pretty good.

    And of course he won't be kicking 70 yarders in the NFL, the point is if he CAN do it then 55s to end the half/game aren't absurd to imagine.

    Here are his plus 50+ kicks that he missed, just for the curious.

    54, 65, 51, 55, 57, 61, 63

    Obviously he won't be asked to make those in the NFL.

    Let me first address the fact that his team lost 10 games. So, was he clutch? I'd say that's debatable.

    Okay, to answer your query.

    Missed a 63 yarder vs. Montana State in the 4th quarter.

    Missed a 61 yarder at Colorado State in the 3rd quarter.

    Missed a 57 yarder vs. Arizona State in the 4th quarter.

    Missed a 55 yarder at Oklahoma in the 2nd quarter.

    Missed a 51 yarder vs. Kansas State in the 1st quarter.

    Missed a 65 yarder vs. Iowa State in the 4th quarter.

    Missed a 54 yarder at Nebraska in the 2nd quarter.



    On the season he hit only 2 of over 50 yards.

    Hit a 56 yarder vs. Texas Tech in the 2nd quarter.

    Hit a 53 yarder vs. Texas Tech in the 3rd quarter.
