[quote]They do like Chris Polk though [/quote]
Neither Bryce Brown nor Chris Polk had significant yardage last year. They combined for maybe a handful of TDs, but let's face it, there were plenty of TDs scored by Philly last year, so those numbers may be a little skewed.

The answer is no. They are appropriately rated. Predraft, you need to know who the kicker is for each team. If a kicker gets a staph infection in preseason and gets replaced, you need to know that. As long as you know that you have by the last round draf...
