The skinny on Mike Nugent

Here is a scouting report on the Jets second round pick Mike Nugent.<p>

Ohio State senior kicker MIKE NUGENT was recognized as being the best kicking prospect to come out in recent memory... has a history of converting clutch field goals... made a number of game-winning kicks throughout his college career... strong leg... most of his kickoffs land between the 3-5 yardline and endzone... has enough leg strength to consistently nail 45-50 yard attempts... has experience kicking in all types of weather conditions... so the windy conditions at Giants Stadium shouldn't be a problem ... Minnesota at #49 could have drafted him before the Jets came back on the clock at #57... obviously, he fills a clear-cut need... and could be the difference in 2-3 games next year... with both his field goals and field position.
