Strong Points

Does all the kicking for Idaho: punting, kickoffs and field goals. Accurate with FGs in 2016, making 26-of-29 attempts. Had 46 percent of his punts land inside the 20.

Weak Points

Kicks at altitude. Punt average was only 41.6 yards last season. Doesn't have the leg strength to handle place-kicking duties in the NFL. Snap to toe can be improved.

The Way We See It

Versatile in that he can handle all kicking duties, but reality is he doesn't have an NFL leg for place-kicking duties. Can be a reliable fill-in if the regular kicker is injured. His best chance is as a punter. Gets good hang time but needs a bit more distance. Rehkow looks the part and his chances may rely largely on how many scouts knock him for kicking in the thin air in college. Most likely a free agent with a chance in the right situation.
