Top 10 Kickers


Recommended Posts

1. Josh Brown, St. Louis Rams

He is arguably the league's top long-distance field goal kicker and is big time in the clutch. Brown is very accurate, handles pressure well and he is still young with a tremendous upside.

2. Robbie Gould, Chicago Bears

He continues to be one of the more accurate place kickers in the league. Gould has a strong leg and should continue to be effective in Chicago for years to come.

3. Rian Lindell, Buffalo Bills

He is an eight-year veteran who has great size for a kicker and has a live leg to drive the ball in poor weather conditions. Lindell shows poise under pressure and has confidence when the game is on the line.

4. Rob Bironas, Tennessee Titans

He was excellent last season, hitting 35-of-39 field goals, which earned him a trip to the Pro Bowl. He displays a strong leg on field goals and consistently gets great distance on his kickoffs.

5. Kris Brown, Houston Texans

He has developed into one of the more consistent kickers in the league with a strong leg that can be counted on for field goals of over 50 yards. Brown has a nice, easy kicking motion that gets a smooth, fluid follow through and good extension. In 10 attempts this season, he hasn't missed a field goal.

6. Nick Folk, Dallas Cowboys

He has good leg strength with the ability to get good rise on the ball. Folk has 50-plus yard range on field goals and enough leg strength to drive the ball deep on kickoffs.

7. Jason Elam, Atlanta Falcons

He is the most experienced player of the group and continues to kick at a high level. He still has a strong leg and will come through when the game is on the line. We have him ranked lower due to age and the fact he kicks indoors.

8. Nate Kaeding, San Diego Chargers

He is entering the prime of his career and is starting to establish himself as a very effective kicker in this league. Kaeding would be an upgrade for most teams.

9. Mason Crosby, Green Bay Packers

He became the seventh rookie to lead NFL in points last season. Crosby has a very strong leg and can drive the ball with good distance on kickoffs.

10. Matt Bryant, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

He has a solid leg and is consistent when kicking from inside the 50-yard line. He has good mechanics and does a good job of getting a quick rise on the ball to avoid blocked kicks.

Yeah everyone is forgetting that he not only made the game winning kick, but also MOST of the points last Sunday. This was a great pickup for us.

It's funny too because I watched him once at Brookwood High School practicing kicks with his Dad in his senior season when my sons were signing up for soccer one day. Life can take some strange twists sometimes. Who would have thought then that he would be kicking for us now so many years later. Sheesh life goes too fast: I can't believe I am this old already. -_-

It has been ages since a priority has been placed on getting a reliable kicker. IMO having a clutch kicker means 2-3 wins a year. Elam was one of the key acquisitions of the off season. Let us not forget the failed Koenen experience, Prater, Peterson, Feely, and the lovable, but limited Morten Anderson. I wouldn't venture to guess how many victories were left on the table during those seasons because of failed field goal kicking.

Kicks indoors? Did they forget that for 15 years he kicked in 1 of the most hardest places to kick in in Denver? Talking about wild, rain, snow and tricky air. Also how in the **** do they have Mason Crosby on the list but not Josh Scobee.
