So you say the Jets are trying him out? Is he going to be their starting QB next year?

Pretty cool, but can he do it with somebody running straight at him or when the game is on the line?

Yeah you never know. It is a highlight reel. I'm no kicker aficionado but I did some kicking back in the day. He does get good lift on his longer kicks which is the biggest thing. A good amount of kickers can kick from long range if they line drive it, but the key is not to get the ball batted down at the line of scrimmage or take to long in the approach. He seems to have a reasonably short approach (40 yards and less), his longer kicks he seems to take a longer approach but he does get good lift. Bonus: it looks like he can punt it 60 yards over the uprights.

This.

As far as if he can do this in game situation, I think it is more likely that he could than could not. Kicking in games is a huge mental stress that affects your kick more than your physical abilities.

The guy, in one continuous shot, hits 60, 50, 40 yard field goals that are almost identical to each other in placement and lift. You have this guy doing formal practices for 2-3 weeks and he's hitting 50 yarders in games pretty consistently, I bet.

Just got to get him focusing on kicking and doing what he knows he can do, rather than worrying about 300 pound beasts running at him and you have a ballin kicker.

They have to, at the very least, try a couple freaky on side attempts this pre season right?

Yea, but can he make an extra point with 70,000 people watching and 11 dudes trying to block it, when he only has one take? I kind of doubt it.

Yeah, but you aren't allowed to kick the ball to your receivers.

looks cool and all but could he come through say, in the swirly pittsburgh winds...or on the road with 60,000 screaming 'miss it!'...or in the 4th qtr with game on the line and eleven monsters rushing at him...but it is a cool highlight reel...

I kinda wish the Hawks had signed this guy to compete in camp.

Oh well, hope he makes it on the Lions, I'm interested in seeing if he turns out to be a good NFL kicker.

Looks like wind factor is a non issue for him. I'd like to see how he does on turf and in a dome.

Good for him if he got an audition with this high light reel. Be interesting to see how it turns out for him.
