2011 NFL Pro Days Schedule: Kickers That Aren't On Today's Schedule

Today's 2011 NFL Pro Days are fairly quiet. Arizona State, Ball State, and Wofford players will be putting on a display hoping to impress scouts as we move towards the 2011 NFL Draft. None of the players appears to be rated in Top 100 lists so there's not a whole lot to work with here.

I thought instead that we could look at the kicker position. There aren't any significant kickers on today's Pro Day schedule, but the 49ers do apparently have plans to work out a kicker. According to National Football Post, the 49ers will conduct a workout today with UCLA kicker Kai ForbathScouts Inc rates him as the number two kicker behind Nebraska's Alex Henery.

Forbath put up some solid numbers at UCLA his first three season before struggling his senior season. Do any of our UCLA fans have any thoughts on why Forbath struggled as a senior. He can hit deep field goals fairly well, but those senior season numbers don't exactly inspire a lot of confidence.

The real question at this point is whether or not you'd actually invest a draft choice in a kicker. Joe Nedney is solid when healthy but his age is catching up with him. Jeff Reed is an option, as is practice squad man Fabrizio Scaccia. Do you draft a kicker to bring some competition to camp, or do you hope for an undrafted free agent to mix in?
