Chris Keagle
6-0/240 Louisiana Tech
4.98 Senior

Pros: Has a good leg with nice accuracy and potential as a directional punter. Generally gets good hang time.

Cons: Doesn't have a booming leg.

Overview: Keagle is a guy that is not going to wow you with his leg strength, but shows good ability as a directional punter. Placed 36% of his punts inside the 20 this past year.

NFL Forecast: Keagle is one of those players that will be a good directional punter but won't put up huge numbers as far as punt average goes. He'll probably never get the credit he is due because of it, but he'll be a steady and consistent punter. He has the ability to stick right away in the league, although he could obviously use a bit more polish.

ATL Forecast: Keagle would fit well in Atlanta because he can be a punter like Chris Mohr. He won't have huge numbers, but will be effective in the game of field position. But he's not really a threat to take Koenen's job, but could push him and be a nice practice squad player working as an insurance policy. But more than likely, another team would pick him up.

Value: He can impact right away and a team wouldn't be mistaken by taken a flyer on him in the late seventh round, but they are better off waiting if they can until undrafted free agency.
