Rob Bironas, Tennessee: Look for a bounce-back season after posting career lows in field goals made and attempted.
Josh Brown, St. Louis: Sebastian Janikowski gets more ink, but Brown is 15-for-19 (78.9 pct.) from 50+ yards over the last three years compared to Janikowski's 13-for-22 (59.1 percent).
David Buehler, Dallas: Battling a hip strain. Look elsewhere.
Stephen Gostkowski, New England: Coming off a torn quad, but has looked OK in camp.
Garrett Hartley, New Orleans: Not thrilled that he was only 12-for-16 (75 percent) inside of 40 yards last year.
Alex Henery, Eagles: Don't overvalue just because he wears Midnight Green. You'll look like an idiot at your draft.
Sebastian Janikowski, Oakland: Set career highs with 33 field goals made and 41 attempts.
Matt Prater, Denver: Had a DUI in August, but the Broncos are sticking with him. He's safe to be picked.
Ryan Succop, Kansas City: Field goal percentage dropped from 86.2 to 76.9.
Adam Vinatieri, Indianapolis: Has attempted one field goal of 50+ yards in the last two years.
