An NFL general manager told Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman that the Buccaneers' selection of Florida State K Roberto Aguayo at No. 59 overall pick was "the dumbest pick in the history of the draft."
In trading third- and fourth-round picks to move up into the end of Round 2 to take a kicker, Tampa Bay drew heavy criticism from Freeman's sources. Not everyone disagreed with the thinking, however. One scout, for instance, said that recent rule changes have made kickers more valuable, further arguing that they will be as valuable as running backs within a few years. The Bucs, who played in 10 games last year decided by 10 points or less, clearly believe Aguayo (69-of-78 on field goals and 198-of-198 on extra points in college) can become a difference-maker in close games.

All told, Aguayo went 69-of-78 (88.5%) on field goals and 198-of-198 on extra points.

FSU K Roberto Aguayo would love to stay local and kick for the Bucs.

Beginning about mid-Day 2, the subplot of where Aguayo will get taken will be worth watching. NFL Media draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes Aguayo will get drafted no later than the end of Rd. 3. Jeremiah's colleague Lance Zierlein compares the three-time All-American to Graham Gano.

NFL Media draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah said that he believes FSU K Roberto Aguayo will be drafted by the end of the third round.

"I think we could see a kicker kind of challenge right on the edge there, second round, third round. I don't think Roberto Aguayo gets out of the third round," Jeremiah said on NFL Network's Path to the Draft. For precedent, he cited the Chargers drafting Nate Kaeding in the third round of the 2004 draft. At least part of the push for Aguayo is due to the NFL's recent decision to move extra points back. Jeremiah colleague Lance Zierlein has previously compared the three-time All-American to Graham Gano.

An AFC scout said his special team coach loves FSU K Roberto Aguayo.

"I had our special teams coach watch tape on him after our season was over and he really liked him. It may be time for us to upgrade board," the scout said. The 6-foot-1, 209-pound Aguayo won a Lou Groza Award and was an All-American three times in three years of eligibility. NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein compares Aguayo to Graham Gano. "Aguayo is considered an accurate, clutch kicker but with average leg strength. Aguayo is the first kicker to declare early for the draft since Sebastian Janikowski and is expected to be drafted, though not as early as 'Seabass' was," Zierlein wrote.

During Friday's All-Star Football Challenge, FSU K Roberto Aguayo absolutely slaughtered the speed-kicking competition.

Aguayo was a perfect 7-for-7 on his boots, hitting two kicks from 35 yards out, two from 45, two from 50 and one from 53. The 6-foot-1, 209-pounder's shooting to become the first kicker drafted in the Top-100 since Mike Nugent in 2005. Somewhat unbelievable, but true--the three-time All-American Aguayo is the first FSU player to achieve that three-feat since Deion Sanders.

FSU redshirt junior K Roberto Aguayo announced he will enter the 2016 NFL Draft.

Mike Nugent was the last place kicker to be selected in the top 100, and that was back in 2005. Granted, the Jaguars selected a punter at No. 70 overall just a few years ago, but it will be interesting to see where Aguayo lands. Statistically, he is the most accurate kicker in NCAA, but was not as consistent this year as he was in the past.
Jan 6 - 10:03 AM

FSU redshirt sophomore K Roberto Aguayo "has the talent to be the rare underclassman specialist to declare early," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Aguayo has two years of eligibility remaining at Florida State, but he has the talent to be the rare underclassman specialist to declare early. And with another consistently productive season in 2015, he could be the first kicker drafted in the top-100 picks since 2005 NFL Draft (Mike Nugent)," Brugler wrote. The FSU prospect won the 2013 Lou Groza Award and earned consensus All-American honors in 2014. Last season, Aguayo was 27-for-30 on field goal attempts, with a perfect 18-for-18 on kicks under 40 yards. Aguayo's 293 points currently rank him eighth in FSU history in scoring among all players. Aguayo doesn't really have much else to prove at the collegiate level and a jump for the NFL may make sense after this season.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman reports that FSU redshirt sophomore K Roberto Aguayo will return to school for his junior season.

In his career at FSU, The two-time All-American has made 48 of 52 field goals at an FSU record 92.3 percent and all 149 of his extra points. Aguayo's 293 points currently rank eighth in school history in scoring among all players. ESPN's Mel Kiper believed, that if Aguayo entered the draft, he had "a legit shot to be taken before the end of Day 2 of the draft." The Seminoles' kicker has an opportunity to be a three-time finalist for the Lou Groza Award, given to the nation’s top kicker. Aguayo won the Lou Groza Award award in 2013, when he set an FBS record with 157 points.

Three NFL scouts speaking with Bleacher Report confirmed that FSU redshirt sophomore K Roberto Aguayo would be a top-100 pick if he declares early.

"I'd give him a Round 3 grade," one said. "Kickers like that don't come around often." At this point, it seems likely that Aguayo wouldn't have to wait until Day 3 to hear his name called if he decided to opt into the draft. ESPN's Mel Kiper wrote earlier this month that Aguayo has "a legit shot to be taken before the end of Day 2 of the draft" if he enters early.

FSU redshirt sophomore kicker Roberto Aguayo has "a legit shot to be taken before the end of Day 2 of the draft" if he enters the draft early, writes ESPN's Mel Kiper.

"This is a volatile position, and a bad preseason or start to the year can leave you out of a job," Kiper wrote. "You have to be extremely confident that you're ready to lock down a job." Aguayo, a Lou Groza Award Candidate, is trying to match former Seminole Sebastian Janikowski's (1999, 2000) feat being as the only repeat winners of the honor given to the nation’s top kicker.

FSU sophomore kicker Roberto Aguayo was 3-for-3 on field goals on Saturday.

Yeah, we'll throw our kickers a bone every now and then. Roberto Aguayo connected on three kicks against Miami, one from 53 yards out. He has a fantastic leg and will probably win the Lou Graza award, which is annually given to the best kicker. We'll let Jameis Winston take it from here. "Best kicker in the game," said Winston. Adequately put.
