    View Ranking History


    6/27/20: Nordin made 10-of-13 field goals in 2019 (77 percent), but he was perfect on three attempts in the 30-yard range. He was 1-of-3 from over 50 yards, but made a 57-yard field goal. He had an impressive freshman season for the Wolverines. If Nordin kicks well in 2020, he could be the top-rated kicker for the 2021 NFL Draft.

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


    6/27/20: 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.

    6/27/20: Weiss showed off impressive accuracy as a sophomore in 2018, hitting on 15-of-18 field goal attempts. However, his longest field goal was only 38 yards, so he needs to show more leg strength as a junior and senior. In 2019, he was 3-of-5 with a long of 37.
