Hey, I was just wondering if Miami was thinking about drafting a kicker. Since Mare was expensive and Nick almost didn't want to play him...any ideas on this?

We do have a backup kicker named Ola Kimrin signed to a 1-year deal. Possibly a project of Saban's. You'll possibly see what he can do in training camp.

Isn't Kimrin like 32 years old? if he is i don't see him as a project.

the only reason I ask...is because mare is getting alot older so I am not actually sure if this is a strong kicker draft or not lol

That kid from mississippi who won the kicking award at the college competition in Miami early this spring seems worth drafting.

I think your talking about Stephen Gostkowski. Plays for Memphis .

I saw that competition and that Guy is special.

Why the hell should we draft a kicker?

He was a 2nd round pic...And we also got Justin Miller a few picks later..

We need to wait 1 year and pick up Murcus Crosby, from Colorado. You only have to see him once to realize he's the best kicker in the country.

He can kick 50 yarders into a stiff wind and still have 10 or 15 yards to spare.

He's a freak... I'm tellin' ya.

Why draft a kicker? 1) Opposing offenses will never start past the 20 yard line with this guy. 2) Once you get inside the opponents 40-yard line, it's an automatic 3 points.

Just my 2 cents.

Exactly, Mason Crosby should be our draft pick next year to replace Mare (first name Mason not Murcus)....Crosby has a stronger leg than anyone I have seen....college or pro. Hope we take a shot at him next year.
