Draft 2024 – Pick #7: Joshua Karty, K, Stanford

After struggling in 2021, Karty kicked with impressive accuracy and consistency over the last two years. He hits the ball with repeatable process and repeatable ball flight from 40-plus yards out, and he never seemed to get into a mental funk. Karty has a strong enough leg to make field goals from 54 to 56 yards without having to drive them low, and his kickoff leg will take the return game completely out of the equation if teams want. He has middle-round draft value and could become a longtime NFL kicker.


  • Possesses deep range of 56-59 yards on tape.
  • Creates momentum into his strikes and generally gains big lift.
  • Made 91.1 percent of his field goals over the last two seasons.
  • Handles kickoffs with the same leg strength.
  • Completed slick onside kick against Sacramento State.


  • Must be careful not to overcorrect to the opposite post on kicks from the hash.
  • Failed to make his wind adjustments on 51-yard misses against Arizona.
