Any kickers worth drafting?

20-29 Range: 7-8
30-39 Range:5-5
40-49 Range:6-8
50+ Range:2-2

Not the strongest leg but he has been pretty accurate.

I'm not saying these guys are worthless, just that they don't have higher draft value than 6th or 7th round. As far as overall accuracy goes, Quinn Sharp has been the best out of the major prospects available this year.

He is accuracy is low because he attempted a league high 13 50+ FGs

Caleb Sturgis, Florida
Zach Brown, Portland State (though he did miss a FG in the East West Shrine game)
Brett Maher, Nebraska

Those are the 4 I can think of.

zach brown band
so who the one you guys want
I'd be very surprised if the team did not use a pick by the 5th round on a kicker.

I dont think they would take one before the 5th round. However, I could easily see the Niners packaging a 6th and 7th to move up to the 5th to draft Hopkins or Sturgis.
