only a few percentage points better than Akers, then?!
I bet he ends up in training camp against either a couple of UDFAs or a 7th round pick. It aint over.
If there's a decent kicker in the 7th (Brett Maher or Quinn Sharp) I would definitely do that, but likely not before as some of us in the draft forum were projecting (5th/6th round for top kicking prospects like Dustin Hopkins or Caleb Sturgis).
