Draft candidates at a glance: Specialists

PLAYERPOS.SCHOOLHEIGHTWEIGHT40 TIMEROUND
Jeff LockePUCLA6-02034.805-6
Very good leg and placement (43.3-yard average). Standout kickoff specialist as well (68 of 89 were touchbacks), so adds value.
Dustin HopkinsKFlorida State6-21844.706-7
Set NCAA scoring record for kickers (466 points). Hit 25 of 30 field goal attempts, with long of 56 yards. Not great long accuracy. Kicks off well.
Caleb SturgisKFlorida5-101884.816-7
Huge range, and he’s accurate from deep (17 of 22 from over 40 yards). Three-step kicker (three blocked last season). Will need two steps in pros.
Quinn SharpPOklahoma State6-11934.756-7
Rare triple threat: field goals, kickoffs, and punts. Raw in all areas. Projects as a punter (46.3-yard average). Attitude is a bit questionable.
Ryan AllenPLouisiana Tech6-12315.006-7
Won Ray Guy Award as top college punter two years with averages of 46.1 and 48.0 yards. Left-footed three-step punter; will have to be shortened to two in NFL.
Luke IngramLSHawaii6-52585.057-FA
Only snapper invited to the combine. Brother Jake was 2009 pick by Patriots and cut in 2010. Played for four other teams.
