2. Rodrigo Blankenship
The former Georgia Bulldogs kicker is ready to impress the Colts.
Adam Vinatieri is all but officially gone, so the Colts will likely welcome a new starting kicker for the entirety of the 2020 season. Though Chase McLaughlin impressed after stepping in for Vinatieri last year, undrafted rookie Rodrigo Blankenship was one of the best college kickers of all time.
He was noticeably angry when no team decided to take a chance on him through seven rounds, so you better bet he’ll be heading into training camp with a chip on his shoulder. Though extra-points will be much tougher in the NFL, the former Georgia Bulldog was 200 for 200 on XPs in his collegiate career!
On top of that, he converted 82.5% of his field goals from 2016-2019 and is 16th on the all-time NCAA scoring list with 440 points to his name. And let’s not forget kicking in college is surely harder than it is in the NFL, with the wide hashmarks and tremendously loud environments in stadiums that fit between 80,000 and 100,000 fans.
Training camp should be a breeze for the 23-year-old.
