Mike Reiss has started playing as he plans to list possible Kickers this week in his blog, starting with Josh Huston. Week 8 is not only for traditional Safeties, but also small LBs who may be good in coverage for SS conversion or players to be Special Teams specialists like Izzo and Davis. This is also the place for Long Snappers, Punters, and Kickers. One more week of board building, then two weeks to discuss our final boards before we find out how wrong we are! Kickers Jeff Glas (North Dakota) Senior year - 83.3% on 30/36 FG, 48/49 PAT. Career: 67.2% on 82/122 FG, 174/179 PAT - FG by year: Fr - 63.6%, So - 56.7%, Jr - 61.8%, Sr - 83.3%. KO data: Jr - avg 58.9 yds, 30 touchbacks, 11 out of bounds; Sr - avg 61.5 yds, 36 touchbacks, 1 out of bounds. There is reason to suspect he has cold weather experience. Stephen Gostkowski (Memphis) Senior year - 88% on 22/25 FG, 35/35 PAT. Career: 76.1% on 70/92 FG, 159/165 PAT. No break down on yearly percentage. KO data: Sr only, avg 63.2 yds, 39 touchbacks, 4 out of bounds. Connor Hughes (Virginia) Senior year - 87.5% on 21/24 FG, 36/36 PAT. Career: 83.5% on 66/79 FG, 134/138 PAT. No break down on yearly percentage. No KO data - a recent post hinted at a weakness in his kickoffs, I havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t gotten a reply on my request for clarification. Chris McMurtray (Southern Methodist) Senior year - 81.8% on 18/22 FG, 21/22 PAT. Career: 75% on 36/48 FG, 62/67 PAT. No break down on yearly percentage. KO data: Sr only, avg 60.3 yds, 21 touchbacks, 2 out of bounds. Taylor Begley (Kentucky) Senior year - 80% on 12/15 FG, 27/28 PAT. Career: 67.9% on 36/53 FG, 118/125 PAT.

Career: 64.1% on 41/64 FG, 110/120 PAT - FG by year: Fr - 33.3%, So - 63.6%, Jr - 68.4%, Sr - 78.6%. KO data: So - avg 59.8 yds, 12 touchbacks, 0 out of bounds; Sr - avg 60.3 yds, 22 touchbacks, 0 out of bounds. Josh Huston (Ohio State) Senior year - 78.6% on 22/28 FG, 44/45 PAT. Career: 1 year of kicking data. KO data: Jr - avg 63.0 yds, 1 touchbacks, 0 out of bounds (skewed by limited KOs); Sr - avg 63.1 yds, 54 touchbacks, 0 out of bounds. Jaret Johnson (Idaho State) Senior year - 89.5% on 17/19 FG, 29/31 PAT. Career: 2 years of kicking data: 74.2% on 23/31 FG, 44/49 PAT - FG by year: Jr - 50%, Sr - 89.5%. KO data: Sr - avg 64.0 yds, 0 touchbacks, 0 out of bounds. The first two seem the most interesting in terms of kicking a lot and improving or maintaining their performance. The last two leave me with the most questions after limited campaigns, though you have to like their senior years.
