Mark Mariscal

PT | (6-1, 201) | Colorado
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Kicked off in three games in 1998 before hurting his back. Kicked off at times in '99 and made an extra point. Kicked off and took over PK duties in 2000 but was just 24-of-26 on extra points and 7-of-18 on field goals. Concentrated on punting in '01, averaging 44.5 yards with nine punts inside the 20 and a 40.5 net. Led the nation in punting with a 48.2-yard average in '02 and won the Ray Guy Award as the top punter. Kicked 61 times and had a 43.0 net with 16 inside the 20, but two punts were blocked.

Positives: Has a strong leg and really can drive the ball. Has improved every year. Can kick off and be an emergency placekicker.

Negatives: Kicks more for distance than hang time. Has way too many line drives on which he outkicks his coverage. Is not very good at placing the ball and really is helped by the altitude.

Summary: Needs to really work on hang time and directional kicking if he wants a job in the NFL.
