Carson Wiggs is a big solid kicker with accuracy and power potential to get better..

2011 ALL-BIG TEN FOOTBALL SECOND TEAM (COACHES): Kicker Carson Wiggs, Purdue, has been selected All-Big Ten Second Team for the 2011 college football season as voted on by the conference coaches. Wiggs finished the regular season 16 of 21 on field goal tries, including making his last nine consecutive attempts. He was honored as the Nov. 28 Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week after going 4 for 4 on field goal attempts against Indiana, which matched his career high by hitting from 48, 43, 29 and 22 yards out, and also connecting on all three PAT attempts to account for 15 of Purdue's 33 points in the game. Wiggs is the most accurate kicker in school history (73.6 percent, 53 for 72) and has the second-most field goals ever at Purdue (53). - Purdue football

SPAETH WAS HIGER THAN A 7TH I THINK WHAT EVER ROUND THEY ARE DRAFTED IN IS THE PICK WE SHOULD GET BUT ONLY FOR ROUNDS 3 THROUGH 7. HOWEVER THAT'S NOT THE WAY IT WORKS

Its based on how much the played for the other team and the value not what round they were selected in.

I know it wouldn't be a compensatory pick, but what about the Georgia kicker in the 6th?

Saw the other post on drafting kickers. Why take the chance on a positional pick if the one of the best kickers is available. I say draft him and put the matter to rest. Just my opinion, but draft him and put vs Suisham and see who wins in camp.
