Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Rodrigo Blankenship, Georgia
  • '19 - Cole Tracy, LSU
1. Syracuse image Andre Szmyt, K, Syracuse
Height: 6-0. Weight: 195.
Projected 40 Time: .
Projected Round (2022): 4-6.
View Ranking History

7/15/21: Szmyt was the highest-graded kicker on NFL teams' preseason watch list. Over the past three seasons he has been very consistent. He hit on 82 percent in 2020, 85 percent in 2019 and 88 percent in 2018. Over that span, he is 4-of-5 from 50 yards or more with a long of 54. He has six misses in the 40-yard range over those three seasons, so improving in that tricky territory is a point of emphasis as a senior.





Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Tyler Bass, Georgia Southern
  • '19 - John Baron II, San Diego State
2. Arizona image Lucas Havrisik, K, Arizona
Height: 6-2. Weight: 187.
Projected 40 Time: .
Projected Round (2022): 5-7.
View Ranking History

7/15/21: Havrisik struggled in 2018 and 2019, connecting on only 55 and 59 percent of his field goal attempts, respectively, but in 2020, he was very good, hitting 86 percent with a long of 51. He made a 57-yard field goal as a freshman with other longs of 55, 53 and 51. Havrisik has a strong leg, but he has to stay accurate as a senior.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Jet Toner, Stanford
  • '19 - Matt Gay, Utah
3. South Carolina image Parker White, K, South Carolina
Height: 6-4. Weight: 205.
Projected 40 Time: .
Projected Round (2022): 6-FA.
View Ranking History

7/15/21: White was a good kicker for the Gamecocks in 2018 and 2019, hitting on 81 and 82 percent of his field goals, respectively. In 2017 and 2020 however, he was sub 60 percent. In 2020, he was 0-for-4 in the 50-yard range and was 8-of-10 in the 40s. White needs to be more consistent as a senior.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Ricky Aguayo, Florida State
  • '19 - Austin Seibert, Oklahoma
4. Northern Arizona image Luis Aguilar, K, Northern Arizona
Height: 6-1. Weight: 200.

Projected Round (2022): 7-FA.
View Ranking History

7/15/21: Aguilar hit on 88 percent of his field goals in 2019 (22-for-25) and showed good accuracy. He will need to do that again in 2021.





Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Jace Christmann, Mississippi State
  • '19 - Justin Yoon, Notre Dame
5. Notre Dame image Jonathan Doerer, K, Notre Dame
Height: 6-2. Weight: 200.

Projected Round (2022): 7-FA.
View Ranking History

7/15/21: Doerer kicked well in 2019, hitting on 85 percent of his field goals with a long of 52. However in 2020, he fell down to 65 percent with a long of 51. He needs to be more accurate as a senior.
