  1. Blake Lynch, K, Kansas State
    Height: 5-5. Weight: 148.
    Projected Round (2021): 7-FA.

    3/20/20: 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.




  2. Brandon Ruiz, K, Arizona State
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 174.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.

    3/20/20: In 2019, Ruiz made 82 percent of his field goals (18-of-22) with a long of 49. He missed both attempts in the 50-plus range. Ruiz hit a 52-yard field goal as a freshman, but his percentage of 70.4 percent (19-of-27) was less than one would like to see. However, he showed big improvement as a sophomore, connecting on 18-of-22 (82 percent) with a long of 49 yards. He improved from 5-of-10 to 4-of-5 in the 40-yard range to lead his improved accuracy.


  3. Matt Coghlin, K, Michigan State
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 187.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.

    3/20/20: Coghlin took over as the Spartans’ kicker in 2017 as a freshman and had a respectable debut, hitting 15-of-19 field goals with a long of 46 yards. As a sophomore, he improved to 18-of-22 (82 percent) with a long of 49 yards. In 2019, he made 22-of-32 (69 percent) of his kicks with a long of 47 yards.




  4. Cody Weiss, K, South Florida
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 180.
    Projected Round (2021): FA.

    3/20/20: 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.


  5. Jacob Moody*, K, Michigan
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 191.
    Projected Round (2021): FA.

    3/20/20: In 2019, Moody was only 6-of-9 with a long of 43 yards. Moody took over kickoff duties and then eventually field goal duties for the Wolverines in 2018. He was 10-of-11 with a long of 48 yards.
