Conor Lee
5-11/200 Pittsburgh
4.93 Senior

Pros: Is an accurate kicker with potential to make the clutch kicks.

Cons: Lacks big leg and doesn't appear to have much range beyond 45 yards. Not a factor on kickoffs.

Overview: Very accurate and consistent kicker at Pitt, considering he was kicking at Heinz Field, known for its tough conditions. Made 83% of his kicks. Is the brother of Penn State linebacker Sean Lee, who is expected to be a top pick in next year's draft. He'll turn 25 in October. NFL Forecast: It might be the similarities in names, but I think Lee has the potential to be another Connor Barth. He doesn't have a big leg, but seems to show the consistency and ability to be adapt fairly easily to kicking in the pros. He doesn't have a big leg, but if he plays for an indoor team that will be less of an issue.

ATL Forecast: Lee could be a nice developmental kicker for the Falcons, able to take over for Elam in a few years. He could land on the practice squad. His lack of leg strength wouldn't be as big an issue inside the Dome.

Value: Lee doesn't have the ideal combo of accuracy and leg strength to merit a draft pick. But a team that has an unsettled kicking position would be smart to sign him as a free agent.
