Seth Marler

PK | (6-1, 195) | Tulane
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Second-team All-Conference USA in 1999, when he made 30-of-31 extra points and 15-of-21 field goals with a long of 51 yards. Hit 37-of-39 extra points and 16-of-21 field goals with a long of 48 in 2000. Made 39-of-40 extra points, 15-of-16 field goals with a long of 53 to go with 51- and 50-yard field goals in '01, when he won the Lou Groza Award and Conference USA Special-Teams Player of the Year honors. In '02, kicked 29-of-33 extra points and 18-of-28 field goals with a long of 51. Punted 68 times for an average of 42.7 with a long of 68. Right-footed, soccer-style placekicker. Home games at Tulane were in a dome. Was impressive at the Scouting Combine, where he did not miss a field goal.

Positives: Has improved leg strength and range. Is OK from 50-plus-yards. Very accurate.

Negatives: Has poor hang time on kickoffs. Leg strength is average at best. Line-drives kickoffs and longer field goals and is a poor tackler.

Summary: Probably sealed a top grade with his performance at the Scouting Combine, but only if he shows better hang on his kickoffs. Projects as a placekicker but could serve as an emergency punter for an NFL team.
