Alex Walls

K | (6-0, 211) | Tennessee
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Walked on and redshirted in 1998. Took over as the team's kicker in the third game of the '99 season and made 35-of-36 extra-point tries and 8-of-11 field-goal attempts with a long of 51. Was 39-of-39 on extra points and 18-of-20 on field goals with a long of 47 in 2000. Lou Groza Award finalist in 2000. Connected on 39-of-39 extra points and 15-of-20 on field goals with a long of 51 in '01. Missed 31 games last year because of an injury suffered during warmups prior to the Middle Tennessee game. Connected on 20-of-23 extra points and 12-of-17 field goals (missed just one inside of 40 yards) in '02. Right-footed, soccer-style kicker.

Positives: Has OK leg strength. Gets ball off quickly. Accurate and can handle pressure. Gets height on kickoffs. Has adequate leg strength.

Negatives: Lacks top leg strength and kickoff ability.

Summary: Reliable but not very good with his placement when kicking from inside the 40-yard line.
