I've liked Cole Tracy for a while... good story, kid is accurate and has hit big picks.

Question is his leg strength but, really, I don't anticipate too many 50+ yard field goals IF it's 4th and short.

Gun to my head I think we use our lower 7th round pick on Gay or Tracy if we love one of them/are concerned someone else may draft them.

First words out of Pace's mouth when he talked about kickers the other day was leg strength kicking in chicago.

The other was about UDFA and how they get more specialized training and coaching after college before ending up with a team.

I think they probably grab another UDFA through tryouts.

You forgot some. I would sign as many as possible as FA's then let them kick it out.

John Baron II, K, San Diego State

Height: 5-11. Weight: 190.
Projected Round (2019): 5-7.
2/25/19: In 2018, Baron was 17-of-22 with five field goals over 50 yards and a long of 54. He was a perfect 5-of-5 in the 50-yard range. Baron then kicked the ball well at the East-West Shrine practices and impressed some evaluators.

8/30/18: In 2017, Baron was 12-of-15 with a long of 43 yards. He had a strong debut in 2016, hitting on 91 percent of his field goals. Baron was 1-of-2 in the 50-yard-plus range and a perfect 5-for-5 in the 40-yard range that season.

Justin Yoon, K, Notre Dame

Height: 5-9. Weight: 190.
Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.
2/25/19: In 2018, Yoon was 17-of-21 with a long of 48 yards.

8/30/18: In 2017, Yoon was 14-of-18 with a long of 46 yards. He was 13-of-17 in 2016 with a long of 40 yards. Yoon was an impressive kicker as a freshman for the Fighting Irish in 2015, making 15-of-17 kicks. He was 3-for-4 that season when considering his total attempts from over 40 and 50 yards. Yoon was 50-of-52 on extra points in 2015.

Emmit Carpenter, K, Minnesota

Height: 6-0. Weight: 199.
Projected Round (2019): 7-FA.
2/25/19: Carpenter was 17-of-23 in 2018 with a long of 53 yards.

8/30/18: In 2017, Carpenter was 14-of-20 with a long of 49 yards. He was excellent in 2016 for the Gophers, making 22-of-24 attempts (92 percent). He also showed leg strength and deep accuracy. Carpenter was a perfect 2-for-2 above 50 yards, notching a long of 53. He also was very impressive in the 40-yard range, hitting a perfect 8-of-8.

This is only guy I would draft and he isn't a kicker but a punter.

Mitch Wishnowsky (born March 3, 1992) is an Australian amateur American football punter for the Utah Utes. He won the Ray Guy Award and was a unanimous All-American as a sophomore in 2016.[1][2] He was unanimously named to the College Football All-America Team as a result of his successful sophomore season.

Wishnowsky had grown up playing Australian rules football, but was forced to give up the sport at age 18 due to repeated shoulder injuries. By that time, he had dropped out of secondary school at age 16 to become a glazier. While the work paid well enough for him to purchase a house in his hometown near Perth along with his best friend, he grew to hate the job and sought another career path. Although no longer playing full-contact Australian rules, he continued to play a flag version of the sport alongside several friends, one of whom had a connection to Prokick Australia, a training center in Melbourne that converts Australian rules players into gridiron football punters. He left his job and moved across the country in 2013 to enroll in Prokick, spending a year there. By that time, Utah had brought in earlier Prokick graduate Tom Hackett, and were pleased enough with him that they reached an agreement with Prokick director Nathan Chapman to leave a scholarship open for Wishnowsky once Hackett's Utah career ended after the 2015 season. Since Wishnowsky needed time to secure NCAA eligibility, he enrolled in and punted for Santa Barbara City College in 2014, and redshirted in 2015, remaining in Santa Barbara to complete his associate's degree and conserve NCAA eligibility.[3]

During his Ray Guy Award-winning season in 2016, he was second in Division I FBS in punting average (47.7 yards) and first in punts downed inside the opponent's 10-yard line (17). His 2017 season was only slightly less successful, with a 43.9-yard punting average and 10 punts downed inside the 10.[3]
