Draft Prospect Outlook:

Big, well-built kicker who was more accurate earlier in his career than he was in 2017. Plenty of leg to hit from 50-plus yards with good regularity.

College Recap:

A three-star recruit out of Colorado Springs, Colorado, Daniel Carlson finished his career as the most decorated kicker in Auburn history with 14 school records. Carlson, who redshirted as a true freshman, was a four-year starter. He handled punting, placekicking and kickoffs for Auburn as a redshirt freshman going 18 of 24 on field goals. He earned the first of three nominations as a Lou Groza Award finalist in 2015 finishing the year with four field goals of 51-plus yards. Carlson connected on 16 straight field goals as a sophomore, breaking a program record. His 71 percent touchback percentage was fifth nationally.

Carlson was a model of consistency for Auburn as an upperclassman, earning back-to-back SEC Special Teams Player of the Year awards. He finished with a career-high 28 field goals made as a junior. He tied an SEC record with six field goals against LSU. Carlson, who closed out his career as the SEC career scoring leader (480), was 23 of 31 as a senior. He became the first Auburn player in 30 years to hit two field goals of 50-plus yards in a win over Missouri. Carlson has the second-best percentage on 50-plus yard kicks in NCAA history (13 of 21). -- Michael Niziolek
