Mat Mcbriar

PT | (6-0, 195) | Hawaii
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Joined the team in 2000 and averaged 38.3 yards on 43 kicks with 17 inside the 20. Second-team All-Western Athletic Conference in '01, when he averaged 43.4. Had a hot-and-cold senior year, averaging 44.8 on 48 kicks (long of 73) with 12 inside the 20 (including bowl game). Had two kicks blocked.

Positives: Tremendous leg strength even when he kicks at sea level. The ball explodes off his foot when he has a good drop and hits it well. Has 50-yard-plus kicks with a hang time better than 5.0 at times.

Negatives: Three-step kicker who takes too long to get his kicks off. Very inconsistent. Generally has kicked at high altitudes or in perfect conditions. Will outkick his coverage.

Summary: Has a great leg but must learn to get his kicks off faster and become more consistent.
