But Turner I looked at the SC one again, and one against Clemson I didn't see before.


Clemson didn't make me feel better and they said he's not fit for a zone scheme. We're a zone.

And here's Allen


He tackled well but maybe someone who sees this can explain why he goes off sequence.

Re: 2016 Saints UDFAs

I don't think any of the receivers start imo. Maybe Lewis who looked the fastest. But that name just seems toi odd to be on a 53 man roster.

Re: 2016 Saints UDFAs

Camp invite for Samford Kicker

Chuck Zodda’s top three draft-eligible kickers this year are Roberto Aguayo, Ross Martin, and Brad Craddock. In fact, they are the only three kickers he assigned draftable grades. A kicker being skipped over in the draft but finding a way into the NFL is incredibly common – only 11 out of the 32 current starters were drafted. The laws of supply and demand are heavily tilted toward NFL teams, with only 32 jobs and relatively low turnover, meaning many qualified kickers find themselves not employed by an NFL franchise. While there are a number of large-school prospects, who typically fill these ranks, Anthony Pistelli out of Samford University could see himself missing out on draft day in 2016, but finding his way onto an NFL roster as training camp begins.

Samford University is not to be confused with Stanford University. Located in Birmingham, Alabama, the program operates at the FCS level, with a 6,700 seat stadium that first opened in 1958. Make no mistake, Pistelli is an NFL-caliber talent, though there are enough questions that he does not warrant a team using draft capital on him at this point. The biggest questions are not related to technique or mechanics, but rather the adjustment he faces coming from a small-school environment to kicking in front of 60,000 or more people on Sundays – as well as his long-distance accuracy in games, as this aspect of his talent has not been consistently tested to this point.

Pistelli began his career in 2013 at NCAA Division II Valdosta State, where he went 4 for 8 on field goals after transitioning from soccer. He saw tremendous improvement in his 2014 campaign, going 23 for 27, good for 85.1% accuracy, as well as making a 52-yard attempt. He transferred to Samford to pursue a Master’s degree, and his final year at the Alabama school saw him make 20 of 23 kicks, an 86.9% hit rate. Over the past two seasons, six of Pistelli’s seven misses came on kicks of 40 yards or greater, with only one miss from short distance. With the NFL moving to 33-yard extra points last season, this short-distance accuracy is a positive for Pistelli.

However, his 1 for 3 performance on kicks longer than 50 yards does raise some questions, though it is such a small sample size that not much can be gleaned from this information. Working without pads, Pistelli has shown the ability to hit on kicks up to 65 yards, though there is traditionally a 2-4 yard decrease because of pads. This still shows a strong leg that should be able to hit any kick demanded by any NFL team, but the lack of data is the main reason why this question will likely prevent Pistelli from being drafted.

Re: 2016 Saints UDFAs

I am more pumped about this group than the draft class. as if that was hard

Given the kicker situation I would have thought we would have chased a few other than this camp kicker from samford.
