If there was a kicker than could hit a 108 yard field goal (1 yard line) where would he go in the draft?

3 points EVERY time you get the ball????

I say number 1.

    He would actually kick it a lot farther than 108 yards.

    Think about it.

    You can't kick a field goal that long in a line drive. It has to go incredibly high in a huge arc just to be able to make it that far. That's a lot farther than 108 yards.

    If someone could actually kick it that far in a line drive boot ... it would be powerful enough to knock his own teammates out as well as the opposing lineman.

    That would have to be illegal. (smiling)

    If some guy could kick even a 70- 75 yard FG with consistency I would draft him in the first round. I mean your talking almost 3 point every time you step on the field. If a guy could kick a 100+ yard FG I would pull a Mike Ditka and trade all my picks for him

    You are assuming he has a 100% accuracy rate, which is not very likely. If he missed a kick from his own one, it would be a safety for the other team(2 points plus receiving a kickoff from the 20)since they get the ball at the point of the kick, which would be 6 yards deep in the endzone, not 8 yards as you state in our question. (The ball is placed down about 7 yards from the line of scrimmage, not 9.)

    I think the kicker would be worth having, I think the coach would get fired on Monday for letting his kicker attempt a fieldgoal from his own endzone.

    If you could get 3 points guaranteed whenever you dont score a Touchdown Id definately draft the guy #1.

    You never have to punt and you're guaranteed 3 or 7 points every possession. Id take him with the 1st pick in the draft ASAP

    wherever the Raiders pick. They took Janikowski early 1st round so I wouldnt doubt they do it again. Plus if te guy turns out to be a bust, no one would be surprised because they have done it so many times.
