Special teams spotlight
North P Alex Henery (Nebraska)
Early on, he was not getting much hang time and his punts were not turning over. He then started taking an extra stutter step and started booming the ball 50-plus yards with good hang time. Problem with that extra step is he's more susceptible to blocks. From where the punter kicks the ball, there should be at least 11 yards from that spot to the line of scrimmage to have the best chance of getting it off, but Henery was closer to 8 yards. Ideally, the catch-and-kick should be 1.2 seconds, but he was over that mark. Henery punted and kicked at Nebraska, and he's a better kicker than he is a punter.
North K Kai Forbath (UCLA)
He doesn't have a huge leg, but he's been good inside of 40 yards this week. You can tell, however, that kickoffs are not his strength, as he just doesn't have enough leg. He tries to overcompensate, and it affects his hang time and accuracy. Even Thursday, he did three kickoffs with team drills and unintentionally squibbed two kicks; the one he connected cleanly on reached only the 10.
South K Joshua Jasper (LSU)
Jasper looks like he has good accuracy inside of 40 yards but struggled a little with his accuracy on longer field goals. He looks mechanically sound. On kickoffs, he has good hang time but is average to slightly below average in his distance.
South P Chas Henry (Florida)
A quick, two-step punter, his leg strength is adequate, but what makes him a viable punting prospect are his directional skills and how quickly he gets punts off. He has been consistent all week and is the No. 2 punter in this class.
