Did the Panthers bring in a Kicker to give Gano competition this year? I dont remember seeing anything about it.

Guy named Joey Slye out of Va Tech. Been on the Bucs and Giants rosters as well. Other than him being Va Tech's all-time leading scorer, I know nothing.

Could this guy possibly be a Butker No.2? I mean Gano is good, but we need to start building a replacement.

Doubt it. Butker was good enough to get drafted. It's fairly uncommon for kickers to be drafted with roughly one per year getting drafted (there's been less than 25 drafted since 2000). So since he was actually drafted it's probably fair to say that Butker was an elite kicker prospect. Slye was a 72% kicker in college. The NFL average has been right around the 85% mark for the past five straight seasons. Butker had about the same average in college, but he jumped up to 88% in his final season and that's what got him drafted. Slye's best season was 78% and it was actually 68% in his final season.

In short, Slye is a complete longshot as an NFL kicker and has no chance to make a roster unless he has improved dramatically. With that said, he's got a helluva leg. He posted a video back when he was in college of him making a 70 yarder during an indoor practice session.

 VA Tech’s all time leading scorer? That’s not really much to brag about. VA Tech is one of the most overrated college FB programs out there.

Was in his bio.

Agreed, Frank Beamer could win a lot of games..... until they played a ranked team.

29th in the league last year in missed XPA.

 

At home 100% made, on the road, 78.9%.

Nah, we don't really need competition there.....

I'd honestly love to see it, but this guy ain't it.

I'm just talking about Hurney's and Ron's reluctance to push Gano...although he's been one of the worst XPA kickers in the league for a while, and is up and down on PK's.

I'd have a kicker in the building every Monday after an extra point shank, or a missed FG inside 45.  They won't.

    • Just look at these four consecutive draft classes leading up to Hurney's firing... 2009 NFL Draft[edit] Round # Pick # Overall pick # Player Position College 2 11 43 Everette Brown Defensive end Florida State 2 27 59 Sherrod Martin Safety Troy 3 29 93 Corvey Irvin Defensive tackle Georgia 4 11 111 Mike Goodson Running back Texas A&M 4 28 128 Tony Fiammetta Fullback Syracuse 5 27 163 Duke Robinson Tackle Oklahoma 7 7 216 Captain Munnerlyn Cornerback South Carolina 2010 NFL Draft[edit] Round # Pick # Overall pick # Player Position College 2 16 48 Jimmy Clausen Quarterback Notre Dame 3 14 78 Brandon LaFell Wide receiver LSU 3 25 89 Armanti Edwards Quarterback/Wide receiver Appalachian State University 4 26 124 Eric Norwood Linebacker South Carolina 6 6 175 Greg Hardy Defensive end Mississippi 6 29 198 David Gettis Wide receiver Baylor 6 33 202 Jordan Pugh Safety Texas A&M 6 35 204 Tony Pike Quarterback Cincinnati 7 16 223 R.J. Stanford Cornerback Utah 7 42 249 Robert McClain Cornerback Connecticut 2011 NFL Draft[edit] Round # Pick # Overall pick # Player Position College 1 1 1 Cam Newton Quarterback Auburn 3 1 65 Terrell McClain Defensive tackle South Florida 3 33 97 Sione Fua Defensive tackle Stanford 4 1 98 Brandon Hogan Cornerback West Virginia 5 1 132 Kealoha Pilares Wide receiver Hawaii 6 1 166 Lawrence Wilson Linebacker Connecticut 6 38 203 Zachary Williams Center Washington State 7 41 244 Lee Ziemba Tackle Auburn 2012 NFL Draft[edit] Round # Pick # Overall pick # Player Position College 1 9 9 Luke Kuechly Linebacker Boston College 2 8 40 Amini Silatolu Guard Midwestern State 4 8 103 Frank Alexander Defensive end Oklahoma 4 9 104 Joe Adams Wide receiver Arkansas 5 8 143 Josh Norman Cornerback Coastal Carolina 6 37 207 Brad Nortman Punter Wisconsin 7 9 216 D.J. Campbell Free safety California   I'm counting seven quality players in four years of drafting and one of them was a punter, a position that routinely goes undrafted.
