Best Answer

Two or three kickers are usually drafted every year. In the 2008 NFL draft, the New Orleans Saints took kicker Taylor Mehlhaff of Wisconsin in the sixth round and the Seattle Seahawks selected kicker Brandon Coutu of Georgia in the seventh round. The first kicker drafted in the 1st round was Charlie Gogolak from Princeton who was selected by the Washington Redskins in 1966. Current Oakland Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski of Florida State was a first round selection in the 2000 draft.
