If there was a field goal kicker that could consistently make 70 yard field goals would he be picked 1st pick?
by consistently I mean he has a 95% rate of making kicks at 70 yards. Would he be picked 1st pick in the 1st round of the NFL draft? or would he be picked somewhere in the mid of the 1st round?

nope maybe a 2nd round pick at best

6th round maybe late 5th.
He's still a kicker.
You didn't say if that was 70 yards in a game situation or just 70 yards in practice.
There's plenty of guys that can hit 70 regularly in practice. Martin Gramatica and Brad Daluiso are two that come to mind (although there are others). So, if that's what you meant then he wouldn't be unusual.
If you meant in game situations then that has less to do with the kicker and more to do with the team. A long FG like that requires a lower trajectory which makes it easier to block. That means the other 10 guys have to do a better job of blocking and getting the snap and hold. So, if that's what you meant then it really doesn't have as much to do with the kicker.
Either way, the K himself wouldn't be that valuable.

no, probably not,
The teams that have a first overall or mid first round pick are more than likely looking to restructure their team, no teams structure their team around a kicker, while a guy like that would come in handy, it would only be once in a while. most teams are going to pick a guy that can be a differnce maker right then and now. if not in the near future

Hell no. He would be a sure fire first rounder though. That would allow his team to only have to get to midfield for them to be in FG range and that adds value. But remember if you miss a kick at midfield, the opponents gets the ball on YOUR 43 yard line which is only 23 yards from the red zone.

In football, the goal is to score touchdowns, there's not much value in having a Kicker that can hit from 70 yards

I have to disagree with people - that would invaluable. How many games have been won this year by a field goal? Over the course of a year, that could turn 20 punts into 63 points

Truely, a kicker's chances of taking part in within the NFL depend upon his/her performance in football during his/her tuition football career. If a kicker performs very well in soccer during his/her tuition years, he/she will largely improve his/her chances of getting drafted to play for an NFL workforce.

Actually, a kicker's chances of playing in the NFL depend on his/her performance in football during his/her college football career. If a kicker performs very well in football during his/her college years, he/she will greatly improve his/her chances of getting drafted to play for an NFL team.

No one cares about kickers. Complete after thought - 3rd round at best

Potentially, yes. It is almost a guaranteed 3 points if you get past the 50, that is extremely useful.
