Here is one guy I'd like to pick:

Looks like he can also punt. What do yall think?

Mods, please move if in wrong section.
One of the reasons so many folks are so convinced that Kris Brown should have been replaced mid-season is because kickers are mostly viewed as commodities. I'm not sure if this is as true as those folks think it is, but because there is no shortage of "experienced" kickers on the street, from what I've read, there is no standout kicker in this years draft class, and because for whatever reason, there has been a significant failure rate for college kickers translating to NFL kickers, I'd be somewhat disappointed if we used even a 7th round pick on one of these guys.
