1. Josh Lambo, Texas A&M
Maybe most famed for being a former professional soccer goalie; Lambo was drafted eighth overall by FC Dallas in the 2008 MLS Draft. Even after training with star USA goalie Tim Howard, Lambo never quite caught on for FC Dallas, and was later waived by the team in 2011. Unfazed, Lambo was determined to achieve athletic success and would be eventually found by Texas A&M, via a training video.
Finally finding his niche, Lambo enjoyed great achievement in 2014, making 21 of his 25 attempted field goals for Texas A&M. The 83.3 accuracy percentage was good for best all time by a Texas A&M place kicker. Lambo’s career long is 50 yards, coming in his 2014 season. Proving himself to be poised and clutch, Lambo kicked a crucial game winning field goal against the Mississippi Rebels during the 2013 season.
Lambo’s best chance of making an NFL team may too come when trying out for NFL teams; nevertheless this is a prospect who I believe should be drafted. In a seemingly underrated way, Lambo could have the best chance of any of the 2015 place kicking prospects in succeeding in the NFL.
Undoubtedly Lambo’s biggest weakness is his inexperience; only recently becoming an American Football place kicker. If the once highly touted soccer goalie can continue to learn his new found trade, even being a little older than the average rookie, Lambo has great potential and a chance to make an NFL team.
If you’re looking for a mixture of good accuracy, leg power, and a proven ability to make the clutch kick, Lambo is your guy hands down.
