Pos: 
Large, powerful kicker with a strong leg. Gets terrific lift on field goals, has the ball explode off his foot and consistently hits from long yardage. Gets great hang time on kickoffs and consistently boots it through the opponent’s end zone. Big enough and strong enough to make the tackle on coverage units if necessary.
Neg: 
Showed inconsistency on his intermediate field goals last season. Slows down in his approach to field goals, which led to blocked kicks.
Analysis: 
Gay is one of the most underrated kickers in this year’s draft and has the leg strength to start at the next level on field goals and kickoffs. He needs to get the ball off his foot quicker but comes with big upside.
