No joke. If they make the playoffs, he even deserves consideration for league MVP. People severely underestimate the importance of kickers. If I was a GM, I'd pay top dollar to have the best kicker on my team every season.
Raiders used their 17th overall pick for Janikowski in 2000
And when was it ever established that Janikowski was the best kicker in the NFL? I'd never draft a kicker nearly that high, because you can't predict how a kicker will perform psychologically in the NFL, as demonstrated by Janikowski's volatility. Tucker went undrafted and so far he has the all-time best fg percentage.
