Seventh-round rookie Nate Freese is favored to win the Lions kicking job.

The Lions wouldn't have used a draft pick on a kicker if they didn't expect him to easily beat out Giorgio Tavecchio. Freese made all 20 of his field-goal attempts at Boston College last year and will be on the fantasy radar as a dome kicker in an explosive offense.
