  1. Randy Bullock, K, Texas A&M
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 212.
    Projected Round (2011): 6-FA.

    4/26/12: Bullock was the AP's All-American First-Team selection at kicker after being one of the most accurate kickers in college football in 2011. He made 29-of-33 field goal attempts. On extra points, Bullock was 55-of-57. He was 16-of-21 in 2010 and was good on all 50 extra point attempts. Bullock made all 51 of his extra point attempts in 2009 and was 12-of-19 on field goal attempts. His career long field goal was from 50 yards entering the 2011 season.

    Bullock has a pre-draft visit with the Texans.

  2. Danny Hrapmann, K, Southern Miss
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 160.
    Projected Round (2011): 6-FA.

    4/26/12: Hrapman did not kicked as well in 2011. He was 23-of-34 on field goal attempts. His strong leg caused him to take on some attempts that other teams wouldn't try.

    8/22/11: Danny Hrapmann is a strong-legged kicker who had a quality 2010 season. He was 26-of-31 overall. Hrapmann connected on 6-of-8 from 40-49 yards and 2-of-3 from 50+ yards. He had six touchbacks last season with a streak of 17 field goals made in a row.

  3. Blair Walsh, K, Georgia
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 185.
    Projected Round (2011): 7-FA.

    4/26/12: Walsh had a disastrous season in 2011 which could push him from a draftable grade to an undrafted free agency. He was 21-of-35 on field goal attempts. Walsh had an especially rough game versus Ole Miss with three missed field goals. He also missed two field goals each against both Vanderbilt and Florida. Walsh easily passed his career high for misses in a season this year.

    8/22/11: Blair Walsh had an excellent season in 2010, his third quality year for Georgia. He made 20-of-23 field goals last season. He made 4-of-6 from 40-49 yards and was 2-for-2 at 50+ yards. If Walsh has another strong 2011 season, he could have a draftable grade.

  4. David Teggart, K, Connecticut
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 201.
    Projected Round (2011): FA.

    4/26/12: Teggart made 22-of-28 field goals in 2011. In his career, he made 74-of-97 field goal attempts.

  5. Carson Wiggs, K, Purdue
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 206.
    Projected Round (2011): FA.

    4/26/12: Wiggs was 19-of-25 in 2011. He missed a field goal in four straight games before hitting 12-of-14 to end the season.

    8/22/11: Carson Wiggs has quality leg strength with accuracy on deep kicks. He needs to get more accurate on his shorter kicks. Last year, Wiggs was 15-of-19 overall. On kicks from 40-49 yards, he was 4-of-4 and 1-of-2 from 50-plus. Wiggs needs to improve on his field goal accuracy next season. He is strong on kickoffs with 11 touchbacks last year.

  6. Derek Dimke, K, Illinois
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 180.
    Projected Round (2011): FA.

    4/26/12: Dimke scored on 10-of-12 field goals in 2011. He made some clutch kicks in Illinois' 6-0 start. Dimke missed a makable field goal against Penn State that would have forced overtime.

    8/22/11: Derek Dimke was 24-of-29 on his field goal attempts in 2010. He was 6-of-8 from 40-49 yards and 2-of-3 from 50+ yards. Dimke had six touchbacks last season. His long field goal last season was 52 yards. Dimke needs to have an even better 2011 season to get drafted.

  7. David Ruffer, K, Notre Dame
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 176.
    Projected Round (2011): FA.

    4/26/12: Ruffer struggled in 2011. He was 10-of-16 on field goal attempts, yet he made all of his extra point attempts, 47-of-47. Ruffer had a poorly-timed miss against Stanford.

    8/22/11: Last season, David Ruffer made 18-of-19 attempts. He was 5-of-5 from 40-49 and was a perfect 2-of-2 from 50-plus. Ruffer has a strong, accurate leg. Kicking in the North could have a real appeal to teams that play in the region.
