During his senior season, Longest made 27 out of 37 FG with a career long of 55 yards; Also converted 47 of 48 PAT. He also played baseball for the Cougars' varsity team. Longest looks like a pro kicker and he has had a very solid college career. He is a very good athlete for a kicker (4.95-40). Being right footed, he uses a soccer-style kick motion and balls tend to explode off his foot. He has great accuracy between the 40s. Longest is an unusually poised player. Longest is not as well known as other specialists, but he should be drafted. He has the leg drive and required accuracy to make an NFL roster. At the very least, he should become a priority free agent with a real opportunity to make a roster.
