Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Highly accurate kicker who also handled kickoff and punting duties as a senior. Finished sixth in the FBS in 2013 with an average of 64.16 yards per kickoff, and was fifth with 51 touchbacks. Provides versatility as an emergency option at punter.

WEAKNESSES: Small (5-11, 192) and will bring very little as a last line of defense. Will need to prove leg strength from 50+ to stand out in an NFL camp. Rugby-style punter.

Player Overview

Freese made all 20 of his field-goal attempts as a senior, and finished his career 70-for-81. Still, that was only good enough to garner second team All-ACC honors from the conference's coaches, although the media did appoint him to the first team.

The Strongsville, Ohio native became Boston College's all-time leader in field goals (70). One of the most accurate kickers in the country, Freese was 37-of-39 in field-goal attempts in the last two seasons. Freese was one of only seven FBS specialists in the country who handled all three duties on special teams last season.

Freese also proved his accuracy from distance, connecting on all six attempts from 40-plus yards last season.

05/12/2014 - A closer look at the Lions' picks: Round 7/229 - Nate Freese, K, 5-11, 192, Boston College...The fact that he kicked outdoors and made all 20 of his field goal attempts last season, not to mention 86.4 percent in his career, intrigued the Lions, who did not re-sign veteran David Akers. Accuracy and consistency were lacking last season. The Lions liked him enough to consider using their sixth-round pick on him. - The Sports Xchange
