  3. Blake Lynch, K, Kansas State
    Height: 5-5. Weight: 148.
    Projected 40 Time: .
    Projected Round (2021): 7-FA.
    View Ranking History

    11/28/20: Lynch is 10-of-14 on field goals with a long of 53 this year, but he is 0-for-3 in the 40-49 range. Lynch was very accurate in his debut for Kansas State in 2018, drilling 14-of-16 field goals, including all three tries in the 40-plus-yard range. His two misses as a freshman came from over 50 yards, so it will help him to show the ability to hit those field goals over his junior year. Lynch did not record a field attempt in the 50-yard range as a sophomore, but he was good on a fabulous 91 percent of his attempts (19-of-21) in 2019.
