A way too early New Orleans Saints 7-Round mock draft
Round 4, Pick 14
You’re fooling yourself if you are second guessing the need for drafting a kicker. I’ve long documented the woes of the New Orleans Saints special teams, and firmly believe Special Teams Coach Greg McMahon should be shown the door in 2016. Enter one of the best natural prospects that is well worth selecting.
Despite a down season, Seminoles kicker Roberto Aguayo is the most accurate kicker in NCAA history. His nearly 97 percent accuracy is incredibly impressive, but it’s his accuracy inside of 40 yards that is most intriguing. He was perfect in 2015 (16-for-16) from 40 yards or less, and that bodes well for the league’s new extra point rule. Aguayo does have long range, and drew high marks in the respect group for his leadership on and off the field.
The biggest question is whether or not Aguayo will last until the 4th Round. Yes, he’s that good.
