With the long awaited draft starting tomorrow, one question should be asked: Will the Chiefs draft a kicker? With all the holes that our 2-14 team has, and with only 7 current picks, is it worth it?
Connor Barth did well last year after replacing Nick Novak. He hit 83.3% of his field goals. He was 24/24 on extra points; 6/6 between 20-29 yards; 3/4 between 30 to 39 yards; 1/1 between 40 to 49 yards, and 0/1 over 50 yards. His worst performance came in one game with the Chargers in week 15 where he missed the two aforementioned field goals. Unfortunately we lost that game by one point. With the exception of that one game, he did very well. But was it well enough to keep the Chiefs from selecting a kicker in tomorrow’s draft?
What do you think? Is Connor Barth our future? Do we draft a kicker? Do we sign a street free agent?
