From quarterbacks to corners to collectors to running backs, we’ve been positioning everybody, and as we do consistently, we’ve held back something special for later: kickers and punters. In any event, I feel that is the reason we saved them for last. Nobody was truly clear about it, so I’m about to expect this is a work of art “hold back something special for later” situation. We have our positioning of kickers coming at you first, and afterward this week, we’ll reveal our rundown of the main 10 punters.
Positioning NFL kickers is quite simple – – basically at the top – – on the grounds that everything you need to do is put Justin Exhaust at No. 1 and afterward go from that point. Exhaust is really one of three kickers from the AFC North that broke the main 10 this year, which essentially intends that on the off chance that you want a dream kicker this year, you ought to presumably focus on the AFC North. They understand what they’re doing there.
10. Graham Gano
Subsequent to missing the 2019 season because of injury, Graham Gano has laid down a good foundation for himself as one of the NFL’s best kickers with the Monsters over the last two seasons.
He missed only one field objective in 2020 and just four of every 2021 while just missing two Taps over the last two seasons. Remember that he had a ton of good seasons in Carolina prior to passing on the 2019 mission.
While he just has one Genius Bowl determination on his resume, the way that Gano had the option to defeat a physical issue and a full season out of the association addresses his gifts as a kicker.
9. Nick Folk
In the wake of being the NFL’s driving scorer in 2021, Scratch Society should be referenced among the best kickers in the NFL at the present time. He’s burned through 14 seasons in the association and has just made the Expert Bowl once, which has made him one of the more disregarded kickers in the association.
However, with only 32 placekicker occupations accessible, it says a ton that People has had the option to save a task for more than 10 years and continued to kick field objectives into his late 30s.
Obviously, there have been several harsh years en route, yet People’s last two seasons have apparently been awesome of his profession, so maybe he’s simply getting better with age.
8. Jake Elliott
Falling off an Expert Bowl choice in 2021 (but as an other), obviously Jake Elliott is among the top kickers in the NFL at this moment. Remember that Elliott assisted the Hawks with winning a Super Bowl as a new kid on the block and furthermore has a 61-yard field objective on his resume, establishing a freshman standard all the while.
With 84.3% exactness on field objectives and 95.1% on Taps over the initial five times of his vocation, obviously Elliott is the genuine article and ought to be a quality kicker in the NFL for a long time to come.
7. Evan McPherson
While he has only one season added to his repertoire, there is solid proof that Evan McPherson will be one of the top kickers in 2022. The Florida item made near 85% of his field objectives during the ordinary season, including a 58-yarder.
He was then an ideal 14 for 14 on field objectives during the end of the season games. Most would agree the Bengals could never have arrived at the Super Bowl without him, and we might see stunningly better out of McPherson his year.
6. Matt Gay
Matt Gay has unquestionably made considerable progress since the Pirates delivered him after his freshman season. Being the kicker for a Super Bowl champ will in general do that. In any case, even before the Rams won the Super Bowl, Gay had been chosen to the Expert Bowl last season subsequent to driving the association with a 94.1% exactness rate on field objectives and missing only one of 49 Taps for the productive Los Angeles offense.
Clearly, it was only one season and Gay needs to keep on showing what him can do. However, now that he’s found an agreeable home with the Rams, there’s a brilliant opportunity he’ll be one of the top kickers in 2022.
5. Daniel Carlson
Daniel Carlson has basically tied for the NFL’s scoring chief in every one of the last two seasons, causing it almost certain that he’ll to be among the top kickers in 2022. The Vikings didn’t give him much leeway during his new kid on the block season, however since joining the Plunderers, Carlson has been perhaps of the most solid kicker in the game.
For his vocation, Carlson has changed over 87.2% of his field objectives and is falling off a year in which he was named Second-Group All-Expert, definitely placing him among the best kickers in the association.
4. Chris Boswell
While he went undrafted and at first made some extreme memories finding some work, the numbers say Chris Boswell is one of the most reliable kickers in the NFL. The 2018 season was harsh for him, however Boswell has returned rapidly and assembled three magnificent seasons straight, missing only seven of his 91 field objective endeavors in that range.
Boswell got another four-year contract before the 2022 season, showing exactly the amount of confidence the Steelers possess in him as their kicker.
3. Younghoe Koo
Younghoe Koo has to some degree unobtrusively become one of the most amazing kickers in the NFL subsequent to spending the 2018 season out of the association and playing in the Coalition of American Football in 2019. He had a breakout season in 2020 when he drove the association in focuses and went to the Star Bowl.
The main admonition is that Koo has less than 50 vocation games added to his repertoire. However, in that restricted activity, he’s changed over 90% of his field objectives, including 13 of 14 field objectives from 50 yards or longer. He’s likewise won over be truly outstanding in the association at executing onside kicks, which is an expertise that ought not be effectively excused.
2. Harrison Butker
We should not imagine that the kicking game hasn’t been a significant piece of Kansas City’s progress as of late. Harrison Butker joined the Bosses in 2017 and was the NFL’s driving scorer the season that Kansas City won the Super Bowl.
He doesn’t get close to as much credit as he ought to regardless of his 90.1% profession field objective rate being the second-best all-time, behind just Justin Exhaust.
Butker has shown a lot of reach, making a field objective up to 58 yards while likewise having only one field objective hindered in five seasons. Those variables help to isolate him from the pack and make Butker one of the first class kickers in the NFL.
1. Justin Tucker
The four-year, $24 million expansion that Justin Exhaust endorsed before the 2022 season says everything. His new agreement makes Exhaust the most generously compensated kicker in the NFL, a title that is totally justified. Regardless, Exhaust may be the best kicker ever, and there ought to be no question that he’s the best kicker in the association at the present time.
He at present holds the untouched record for field objective exactness at more than 91%. He likewise set the NFL standard with a 66-yard field objective keep going season, doing as such on the last play of the game with his group somewhere near a point. The Ravens star doesn’t kick the ball farther than anybody for the sake of entertainment, he can likewise do it with the game on the line.
Exhaust was additionally wonderful on additional focuses last season, missing just four Taps in the four seasons since the NFL moved them back. There simply is no other kicker in his association the present moment, which is the reason Exhaust has been a Master Bowler multiple times and an All-Star multiple times during his initial 10 seasons in the association. During that range, he’s been truly amazing.
