In 2012, Graham was ranked #26 in fg%, and #37 in kickoffs. Now, I will concede that alot of Graham 's lower fg% is due to misses from 50+.
But the fact remains, Rackers and Graham are no longer on ANY team. And you know who is tearing it up? Blair Walsh, a 23 yr old kicker who was DRAFTED in the 6th round by the Vikings. Again, its not inconceivable to think we were drafting an upgrade and long term solution for the future when we drafted Bullock. I honestly dont know what else to tell you.
Conceivable or Inconceivable the bottom line is that drafting Bullock was dictated by the salary cap. Justin Tucker is doing better than Walsh and Bullock. So what you're saying is the Texans wasted a 5th RD draft pick on PK.
