Packers could draft Jake Moody to replace Mason Crosby
The last time the Packers needed a kicker, Matt LaFleur was 28 years old and offensive coordinator of the Ashland Eagles. He hadn't even started his journey in the NFL.
That's a credit to Mason Crosby and the decade-and-a-half of consistent play he has provided at a volatile position.
If this is it for Crosby, good luck to the Packers finding a replacement.
Michigan's Jake Moody could be the kicker tasked with replacing the Packers' all-time points scorer. And he made a good impression at his Pro Day.
Moody was consistent at college, and he was named the Lou Groza Award winner in 2021, which goes to the best kicker in the country. He converted 92% of field goals in 2021 and 82.9% in 2022. He never missed an extra-point over his five seasons at Michigan, converting all 148 of them.
You never know whether a kicker will be successful in the NFL until they prove they can deal with the pressure of converting field goals on Sundays, but Moody showed good consistency at Michigan.
Unless the Packers sign a veteran, they will roll the dice in the draft. Moody is the best kicker in the class and could be Mason Crosby's replacement in Green Bay.
