Biography: Four-year starter awarded all-conference honors after his sophomore and junior seasons. Connected on 60% of his field goals last season with a long of 56 yards. Also averaged 60 yards on 75 kickoffs. Made 90% of his field goals as a junior after hitting on 91% the prior year. Longest field goal during each campaign was 53 yards. Made 58.8% of his field goals outside of 50 yards during his college career.
Positives: Big-legged kickoff specialist coming off a disappointing senior season. Drives his kicks, gets hang time and easily puts kicks through the end zone. Drives field goals across the field from long distance.
Negatives: Marginal consistency on field goals. Possesses a big leg yet misses a lot of makeable attempts.
Analysis: Walsh was a good college kicker and has enough leg strength to make an NFL team, but he must improve the accuracy of his field goals.
