BIO: Four-year starter and All-Conference selection the past two seasons. Completed 71.4% of his field goals as a senior, the longest being 42 yards. Set an NCAA record the prior year connecting on 15 consecutive field-goal attempts, the longest coming from 49 yards. Also used as punter.
POSITIVES: Consistent field goal kicker who handles foul weather well. Gets excellent lift on kicks, hits them down the middle on long distances and kicks well under pressure. Gets hang-time on punts allowing coverage teams to make plays down field.
NEGATIVES: Does not drive punts nor flip the field. Marginal kickoff leg and gets neither great distance nor hang-time.
ANALYSIS: A solid field-goal specialist, Scifres lacks a big-time NFL leg.
