2012 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on May-10-2012 by Rob Warner
The recent release of veteran kicker Ryan Longwell all but ensures that rookie Blair White (6th round pick from Georgia) will be the starting kicker for the Vikings in 2012. Walsh's senior season was a bit of a disappointment as he missed 14 of 35 field goal attempts. Some still considered him the best kicking prospect in this draft as he flashed solid accuracy in 2009-2010 when he made 40 of 45 attempts. He was a second-team All-SEC selection as a sophomore in 2009 and received first-team honors in 2010. Playing half his games in the Metrodome is an advantage and his big leg could be worth considering for leagues that award bonus points for 40+ yard FGs. Bottom line, his inexperience makes Walsh best left for the waiver wire until he proves that the accuracy issues of his senior season are behind him.
