Kansas City Chiefs: Pro Football Focus Rankings For Every Position After Week 7
By Brett Gering
Depending on how you assess kickers, Cairo Santos’ ranking can be somewhat skewed.
Returners bring out 58.1 percent of his kickoffs, which is tied for fifth-most in the NFL. That, and that alone, drags his name toward the tail end of the group.
Strictly in terms of field goal kicking (and extra points), PFF slots Santos at No. 28. Since the beginning of Week 3, the undrafted up-and-comer has sliced the uprights in all six opportunities, including three attempts from 40-plus yards.
Dustin Colquitt still acts as the defense’s partner in crime.
Of his 24 punts, only six have been returned (second fewest in the league). Furthermore, he has sniped 13 attempts inside of the opponent’s 20-yard line, while being burned by just two touchbacks.
Santos’ K Ranking: No. 40 of 46
Colquitt’s P Ranking: No. 7 of 33
