Kevin Huber
6-1/221 Cincinnati
4.87 Senior

Pros: Has a strong leg and shows good potential and ability as a directional kicker. Able to pin opponents deep. At times, will get good hang time.

Cons: At times will out kick his coverage and too many punts are line drives. Needs to be more consistent with his hang time.

Overview: He's got the leg and flashes the directional kicking ability to stick. Averaged nearly 46 yards per punt the past two years. Had 40% of his punts as a senior placed inside the 20-yard line. Works as a holder and only attempted one kickoff in his career.

NFL Forecast: Huber has a chance at sticking right away in the league. He has enough skills that makes him a nice developmental prospect for the future. He needs to be more consistent in terms of his directional kicking. But as is, he's probably good enough to be on par with the bottom half of the league as far as punters go. In time, he can develop and has the potential to be one of the top punters around.

ATL Forecast: Huber could push Koenen for his job, but probably wouldn't beat him out because of his lack of experience working on kickoffs. And if he was placed on the practice squad, he'd likely be signed by another team during the season, so he has little value in Atlanta.

Value: Huber is one of the few punters in this class that could compete right away for a job. He's worth a seventh round pick, but anything more than that is a reach.
