Roberto Aguayo Can’t Make a Field Goal
The best kicker in NCAA history was just statistically ranked as the worst kicker in the league. He made 71% of his kicks this season bad enough for worst in the NFL including an amazingly low 36% from beyond 40 yards with none made past the 45 yard line. This was the first kicker in the NFL to not make a 45 yard field goal in a season since 2010. The reason why Bryan Anger had so many punts pinned inside the 10 yard line was because he was allowed to punt from the 35 yard line. With no trust from the head coach there is no chance for the kicker to gain confidence by making kicks. The only issue with Aguayo is when he is given the opportunity to make the kicks he does not make them.
Roberto Aguayo is an extremely lucky kicker. Any other kicker in the league would be gone but because was drafted in the second round, he’s safe. Dirk Koetter has come out and stated that he is willing to let go of any player that doesn’t produce and Aguayo hasn’t produced at all. If competition is brought in this off-season it better be some one that can make at least 80% of his kicks and can hit from beyond 45 yards. However if Roberto can come close to beating his competition they are going to keep him to make try to save themselves from wasting a high draft pick on a kicker. If Aguayo doesn’t make his kicks not only will he likely never get another job in the NFL but he will be hated by the Buccaneers community for his entire life.
