    That really didn't dispute what he said. Most of the top college kickers in any given year don't get drafted. And even fewer go on to be some teams number 1 kicker for more than a season or 2.

    You do make a good point about not having the money to sign a top kicker in FA. Though it's worth putting pointing out that these kickers aren't anymore likely to be as good as Gostowka-face was more us last year. But I suppose they would be much cheaper.

    What round is Jose Borregales projected to go in? 4 or 5th?

    Well, if you’re talking about 7th rounders, why the heck not draft a kicker every year? 7th rounders rarely impact the team, so stick em on the practice squad and try to season em up a bit. I always am amused when people get excited that a 7th round pick is “wasted” on a prospect.

    Can't imagine any kicker getting drafted before round 6.

    A few have, not saying they should but it happens.
    Janikowski Round 1
    Nugent Round 2
    Aguayo in Round 2
    Hanson Round 2
    I think we should draft a kicker this year, seems to be a position we have had issues with since Bironas
    I don't think we will, Sloman will probably get a chance

    I meant in the current football environment I don't see any kicker getting drafted before the 6th round. I know they have in the past. But it seems like those teams are generally run by idiots.

    Succop was a great kicker for us until he got injured. Then we cut him lose, he gets signed by Tompa Bray and he goes back to being a great kicker.

    kickers start to go in the 5th. The Raiders took Daniel Carlson 167th overall.

    Our 5th rd history has been abysmal outside of Jayon Brown so if we went kicker in the 5th, cool.
