Was not expecting that. 

 

Not a fan of drafting kickers, but he’s a damn good one.

Trading up for a kicker is brutal. Not a fan of this pick.

Forbath needed competition, getting a potential "starter" in the 5th is nice.  Can't complain he has no chance to produce this year.

Hopefully he can start out like Walsh and not get the head problems. What kind of kicker is he?

Let’s be honest, it’s not a competition when you spend a 5th round pick on a kicker.

Overview

Kicker with good size and a strong leg for both field goal and kickoff duties. Carlson put together two very strong efforts in 2015 and 2016, but struggled with his accuracy in 2017. He has the talent and mechanics to be taken on the third day of the draft and become an early contributor as long as his ball striking and confidence are where they need to be.

 


Haven't we seen this before?
