Kicker question?


Hello, guys! I'm new of course and follow y'all and the topics are good reading. My question is the Garrett Hartley guy is a questionable kicker, not impressed at all even though he made the kick that led to a Super Bowl. Tulane's kicker is really impressive and looks to be the real thing. I know the Saints have had to taken notice. Do they draft him late and hope no other team hadn't noticed which I think will be doubtful or they they just try and sign him as a free agent??

No. Kickers aren't crazy enough to come out early unless they're Brad Wing

Don't draft a kicker, pick him up as a UDFA

or we can go Al Davis on everyone and draft him with our first round pick

we need to worry about our defense first, then our kicker

He's won every award there is this past season. I thought he would come out to get paid. Free agency or draft. The Saints drafted Morestead so I thought they may roll the dice on him as well because Hartley is a gamble.

re: Kicker question?


yea i mean you never know we might find some colston type defensive guy in that later round. kickers arent the position that have people that just suddenly explode onto the scene in the nfl out of college where they were a relatively unknown.

hartley does make me nervous though

I wouldn't mind the Tulane kid or the Fla State kid. Both were great

re: Kicker question?


as long as the kicker can hit 90%+ under 40 yards that's all I ask for. I don't expect someone to consistently have a blair walsh year with 10/10 for 50yards+

I just want consistency for short kicks, is that so much to ask for?!

Not sure of where Sea Bass would have gone, but at least he's been "worth" it for the Raiders. I would never want to see the Saints draft a kicker higher than a late pick, but ole Al did his thang.

Ya, I wouldn't mind seeing every pick go for D unless they can get a nice OL pick.
