Highly regarded kicker visits

The Denver Broncos are taking a look at a kicker who visited them for a workout.

Memphis State's Stephen Gostkowski was one of the top kickers in the country last year. He finished his senior season by connecting on 19-of-22 field goals and all 32 PATs, with a long of 53-yards and was 9-of-9 from 40-plus yards. Gostkowski also holds Memphis and Conference USA records in PATs (156), field goals (67) and scoring (357 points).

He is the NCAA's active career leader in PATs made and field goals made. He has connected on 136 of his last 137 PATs, including his last 48 consecutive attempts. He also handled all of Memphis' kickoffs in 2005 and had a touchback on 39 of his 68 kicks, with an average depth to the 3-yard line. The Tigers only allowed an average of 20.2 yards per kickoff return.

Gostkowski is widely viewed as one of the top three kickers available in the 2006 NFL Draft. He is expected to be a late-round pick or an undrafted free agent.
