Paul Assad, Pro College Football: Player Development and Scouting. Strong, athletic, smart, hard worker. Technique developing. Seems to have a legitimate D1 leg. Has 50-56 yard range in practic with broken in balls.
Update: Nov. 20, 2008: Occasionally looks really good in practice on technique and ball flight ability but still needs to be more consistent and execute in team/game situations for next level referral.
Update: Nov. 9, 2008 - Demonstrating outstanding kicking ability recently. Improving footwork and foot speed and consistency. Looking like a solid Div. 1 Kicker. Gets the ball up quick on FG and can hit 65-71 yard Kick Off's 3.7 range. Can punt also.
Update: Feb. 09 - Has dramatically improved this fall and spring. Kick Offs are booming now. Made recent adjustments to stepping and set up. Has improved strength levels dramatically as well. Looking like a solid Prospect.
