How many points is a drop kick in the NFL?

A drop kick is worth 1 point if attempted as a Point After Touchdown, or 3 points if attempted as a Field Goal. The points are only rewarded if the attempt is successful of course. A drop kick isn't worth any points, per se, it is simply another method of kicking the ball. It was replaced by the punt in popularity when the shape of the ball was changed (from round to more pointed ends) in the 1930s to make it easier to throw passes. However, the drop kick can still be used, and if a ball is drop kicked through the uprights, it is considered a field goal and worth three points. If a drop kick is used during a point after touchdown (PAT) try, and is successful, it is worth one point. One rarely sees a drop kick tried these days as the more pointed ends make the bounce of the ball very unpredictable.
