Colt David
Pros: Is an accurate kicker that works well on onside kicks. Has decent leg strength with an maximum leg strength up to the 45-48 yard range.

Cons: Lacks the ideal leg strength to drive the ball beyond 50 yards. Doesn't have much value as a kickoff guy.

Overview: David is a nice field goal kicker. He was accurate on about 75% of his kicks, and famous for the famous fake field goal attempt at LSU in 2007 where the holder flipped him the ball and he ran 15 yards for a score.

NFL Forecast: David could be a nice field goal kicker if he proves he can be consistent and accurate up to 45 yards. But he's not the guy that will be able to make that many kicks beyond 45 yards. And because leg strength for kickers is a lot like arm strength for quarterbacks, it won't endear him with many coaches and teams because they'll always be on the outlook for a stronger leg.

ATL Forecast: David has a chance of sticking in Atlanta as a kicker because he won't have to worry about kickoffs with Koenen and the elements won't affect his range in the Dome. But he's a lot like Todd Peterson, and may have trouble sticking long term. He won't unseat Elam, but could land a practice squad and be developed somewhat.
